A lovley poem written by CAS Student, Kalypso!  

CAS Student Georgia, shares with us inspiring women!  

Women have to deal with a greater complexity of expectations and conflicting social pressures than men. It is of utmost importance for girls to be surrounded by strong female role models succeeding on their terms, with authenticity and without apology. Imposter syndrome is frequent in women that obtain high positions, making women less comfortable with power.
