Groomed for leadership

Alexandra Waszak ’14, who graduated in May with a degree in international relations and economics, will attend the 2014 NEW Leadership Illinois residential program, a weeklong workshop designed to encourage women’s participation in public life.

The NEW Leadership Illinois program is a nonpartisan group that, according to its website, “challenges our brightest students to think critically and creatively about public policy and encourages them to make a commitment to public leadership early in their careers.”

While a student at Lake Forest Alexandra was active in SWAN (Students for Women’s Awareness Network) and won the 2013 All-Campus Writing Contest for her paper titled “The Contributions of Rape Humor to a Rape-Prone Society.”
