If someone asked you what had made you proud of yourself in the last year, what would you say? Often, it can feel hard to celebrate our own achievements, but if the last year has taught us anything, it’s that we need to do just that. From little triumphs to big wins, we need to take every chance to celebrate the goals we’ve reached and the ambitions we’re working towards.
So here is the perfect opportunity.
In honour of International Women’s Day, UNiDAYS – the world’s biggest student discount app packed full of deals to make university life even better – has partnered with AllBright, the leading global network for professional women, to launch their annual search for the next Student Woman of the Year. They want you to nominate yourself and tell them why.
What UNiDAYS Is Looking For
Whether you’ve been helping the fight against climate change, working on projects that bring communities together, creating a platform to promote diversity and inclusion, or helping people throughout this pandemic, UNiDAYS is looking for changemakers, activists, organisers and supporters to enter.
You can be studying anything or working across any sector, from business and tech to medicine and fashion. Whatever your field and whatever your passion, UNiDAYS wants to hear about what you’ve been up to and why it’s important.
“Women must be their own champions,” says Viviane Paxinos, GM of UNiDAYS. “UNiDAYS is calling for female-identifying students, be they activists, changemakers, nurses, carers, fashionistas, entrepreneurs or creatives to nominate themselves for an award that will see them mentored by some of the most successful business-women in the world from AllBright’s network.”
What You Could Win
The entries will be shortlisted by an esteemed judging panel that includes Viviane Paxinos, GM of UNiDAYS, Anne Jones, Co-Founder of AllBright and former CEO of Hearst Magazines UK, and Debbie Wosskow, Co-Founder of AllBright and the Evening Standard’s Entrepreneur of the Year 2018.
The winners of the Student Woman of the Year will receive:
• Mentorship sessions with the AllBright founders and team
• A one-year digital AllBright membership with exclusive access to the global community of professional women, courses and events
• Feature interview in Grazia online
