  • Hello, lovely people!

    I am responding to Joanna's “If you can dream it, you can do it” mentorship series.

    The series goes:

    If you could be a business owner or entrepreneur in anything, if you gave yourself permission to dream big and listen to your inner instincts, what would you be?

    Now that you have your vision - list 3 attainable and specific smaller goals (e.g. designating time towards your goal every day, creating a vision board for motivation, or bringing up your idea to friends and family for support), that will help you reach your big goal

    My answer:
    I always loved makeup and was once crazy over watching beauty youtubers. So my dream is to work in cosmetic company or become a beauty youtuber reviewing tons of new makeup products (hahah). My 3 specific and smaller goals I need in order to achieve my large goal are:

    1. Keep loving makeup and watch beauty youtube videos!
    2. Try to write makeup product reviews and study more about chemical ingredients.
    3. Search for cosmetic companies and maybe apply for them.

    Hi bSmart babes

    Have you joined Yirou Yu's quote and image challenge? It's a fun way to share inspiration and get to know each other.

    Her instructions are:
    "What is a quote that inspires you, represents your values, gets you through tough times? Let’s get creative and design an image for it!

    I used Canva(canva.com) to create this picture of my favorite quote by Albert Camus. It carried me through a time when I was transitioning and felt overwhelmed. For the background, I used a painting of one of my favorite artists - Claude Monet.

    Feel free to use canva, any other design tools, or even hand-draw a favorite quote of yours, post it here and tag 5 other bSmart women to post their favorite quote! You can also keep it somewhere you can see (I added it to stickies on my desktop ;P ) and let it give you a little inspiration whenever you need it!"

    Here's mine - a quote by Upenn founder Benjamin Franklin about bein openminded and trying new things, with a photo of his statue on campus.

    What's yours?

    Hello bSmart babes! Happy Monday!

    What are projects and goals you'd wish bSmart would support you?

    Accountability and encouragement can be key factors in making progress on a goal, from a new job to skin care routine to exercise or a new skill on the resume! Comment below with a project you'd like me to hold you accountable for and I'll support you for the next month.

    I'll go first-- this month is immensly stressful for me, with stress of the happiest kind: I have 3 offers for PhD programs in Comparative Literature/English (yay!!!) and will visit the campus of Upenn and UW Seattle to make up my mind. My goal is to take care of myself during this time by 1) taking care of my skin and hair, 2) eating nourishing food 3) walking a lot and going to yoga so that I can soak up this immsense happiness even while I'm in a whirlwhind of excitment and thinking and strategizing. I'll be accountable to this group and post about progress once a week- join me with your own project, big or small!

    Everyone is welcome to join! Simply comment below!

    Amanda Sannella Elsie Grathwohl Yirou Yu Ashley Evans Laura L. Smith India Jones Tracy Kim Sydney Taylor Annie M Roethe - let me know if you'd like to join me to offer accountability and mutual encouragement for each other!

    3) Who are your role models and dream mentors, and if you like tell us why: Mindy Kaling, because she's a beautiful independent spirit, Allison Janny, because she's made her path to success in an industry that can have very limited ideas, and Janet Mock, because she is living her truth no matter what.

    5) What is your dream career: professor at a liberal arts college teaching diverse literature to a wide variety of students
    6) Where are you right now and where would you like to be in 10 years: I am about to start a PhD program in the fall and I hope in 10 years I'll be close to a tenure track position (maybe that's hopeful thinking)!

    Hi Angelina Eimannsberger Yirou Yu Anne Whiting! (Celeste said she's joining our group when she's back online.)

    Loved having Galentine's brunch with you all yesterday.

    To create accountability, follow-up and encouragement from our conversation, I'm listing below what you shared so you can expound and we can support!

    Anne - We'll check-in weekly until 3/19 to see if you're able to take 1 action a week on creating Anne James. Let us know what you need week to week and keep us posted on your progress!

    Angelina! - We'll be checking in weekly to see how you're able to fill your time / increase your present moment awareness while you're in the purgatory of waiting to hear back from grad schools!

    Yirou - Please do post your ideal internship description so we can tag and connect you with bSmart women who can help you!

    Much love!

    Meagan

    Hi bSmart women!

    Does anyone have any advice for finding an summer internship in the city as a sophomore. I have applied to a lot through our school website but heard back from very few.

    I want to pursue a career in finance, and my ideal internship would be one that could sharpen my communication skill, and also demonstrate my interest in finance.

    If you have any advice or know any internship opportunity please let me know! I really appreciate it! ‏ ‏ — feeling loved

  • Hi Sarah Luedke!

    Two bSmart interns are looking for internship advice.

    Yirou Yu is looking for an internship in finance in NYC. Sydney Taylor is looking for an internship in marketing / PR or advertising in NY, Boston, Chicago.

    Do you have advice for these two women for how best to navigate the college internship process? Standing out in a sea of applicants and knowing where to apply is what they're most looking for.

    Any advice you have is greatly appreciated as you've navigated these waters successfully!

    Thank you!
