In two short weeks we’ll be saying goodbye to some of the most familiar and friendly faces from the Women’s Center as they venture on to post-grad life.
Lauren Romine put together this years’ Love Your Body Day and has been volunteering for the past year at the Women’s Center. Lauren will be receiving her BA in Psychology and her plans after OU include graduate school for marriage and family therapy and a relaxing beach vacation. Her interests include an eclectic variety of art, metal music and burritos. Dancing with the Girl Power girls at the etiquette formal is one of the lasting memories Lauren will take away from her time here, and she’s learned that being yourself is enough; there’s always something to be learned from others. “Find time for yourself and whatever makes you happy. Don’t be afraid to try new things. The last person to graduate still gets a degree,” said Lauren.
Simone Savannah served as the Graduate Assistant for the Survivor Advocacy Program this past year and will be graduating with a Med in Cultural Studies. Simone will venture on to the University of Kansas to obtain her PhD in English and Creative Writing upon graduation. Take Back the Night is one of Simone’s most cherish able memories from this past year as it was an exciting and touching event for her. From Simone’s time at the Women’s Center she has gained the value of friendship and education and leaves this quote as a bit of advice: “Nothing will work unless you do.” – Maya Angelou
Thanks for all your hard work and dedication Lauren and Simone, we’ll surely miss you!!
