My name is Alexis and I am a nonprofit leadership and development intern for RepresentWomen, as well as a second-year graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, majoring in International Peace Development. What brought me to RepresentWomen was being able to join a team that helps serve the underserved and help reform broken systems. I hope to learn how to effectively run a nonprofit and learn about different ways of campaigning that I can take with me to my future career. My future career goal is to open and run orphanages in conflict zones to protect children from trafficking or recruitment. I hope to take with me from this internship leadership, advocacy, and what it means to actively fight against and reform broken systems.

Though women in power are not a monolith, I have been thinking a lot this week about the value of women leaders, and so I was glad to find this article by Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, in the The Independent at the the top of my Google Alerts: From the swearing-in of US Vice President Kamala Harris to the Estonian Parliament selecting a female prime minister – champions of women’s rights have had much to celebrate in recent weeks. Yet despite women’s increased engagement in public life, equality remains a distant target.
