|ANNOUNCING: TWM ON CAMPUS - QUEENS COLLEGE|
|TWM ON CAMPUSBeginning Fall 2010
The Women's Mosaic has ventured to the realm of university student life with our launch of TWM on Campus at Queens College. We're excited for its introductory year and the debut event that will bring women leaders of different faiths to talk about what faith and community mean for them. Spearheading TWM on Campus is our intern, Agnes Eshak. Agnes is a student at the Macaulay Honors College at CUNY Queens. She is majoring in Urban Studies with a minor in both Mathematics and Religious Studies.
"There's something magical about women getting together, especially at a TWM event. The intimacy, the honesty, the self-discovery, and just plain fun, is all so meaningful. Particularly significant to me, however, is meeting women of all ages, who are experiencing different stages of their life. These glimpses have helped me redefine strength and success, qualities that I've seen among all the TWM women. After a TWM event like the Visioning Workshop, I always feel inspired to do something, more importantly, to be something. I can't help but rave about The Women's Mosaic and what it stands for. It's about unity. It's not about forming some sort of ideological consensus or rallying for a certain issue. It's about coming together, learning from each other, enjoying what we each have to offer, and encouraging growth on all sides. Being a part of a community like this is invaluable and I'm so excited to bring it to Queens College." ~Agnes Eshak
