    Hi bSmart women!!

    Before the spring semester of my sophomore year had come to an end, I made a list of things that I really wanted to accomplish during the upcoming summer. One of the things I’ve written was to actually get some inspirational reading done. As someone who doesn’t really read as a leisure activity, this was definitely a challenge for me. I’ve never had to patience to get myself to sit down for an hour and read with focus. I got so used to briskly skimming textbook chapters and scholarly articles for my classes that I felt like I forgot how to actually enjoy reading.
    I realized that the only way to achieve this goal I’ve made was to pick a book that I felt would be of importance to my life and personal objectives. I’ve always wanted to improve my interpersonal skills for as long as I can remember. This particular objective became more essential as I decided to go to business school as I realized that networking is a significant part of it. That’s why I’ve chosen the legendary book written by Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends & Influence People.
    I personally know a lot of people who have a similar goal to mine, so I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned from reading this book. Yes, yes, I meant by ACTUALLY reading the book.


    Here are 3 lessons that I will harbor forever:

    1) “Never criticize, complain, or condemn.”
    Dale Carnegie always emphasized that malignant criticizing never leads to anything good. Most people criticize because they want people to change their ways and beliefs, but criticizing doesn’t make anyone want to change. Instead, it makes the other person feel bad about themselves, adopting hatred. Instead of pointing the negative things that you find in a person, appreciate the positive things and tell that person.

    2) “Become genuinely interested in other people.”
    I’ve always been so focused on impressing others when I first meet someone because I think that would make them like me. However, I’ve learned that there’s no point in doing that. I’ve realized that a more effective way to get people to like you is focus less on yourself, but on the person you’re actually talking to. Talk about things that they would find interest in or talk about things you have in common.

    3) “Remember people’s names.”
    I don’t know if it’s just me, but whenever I meet someone, I tend to forget their name because I’m so concentrated on what I’m saying and how I’m conveyed to them. This is a fault I’ve always realized, but never gave too much importance to. Thus, I’ve gone on my merry way without trying to fix this personal problem. However, I’ve learned that one’s name is directly connected to their importance. Forgetting people’s names make them feel like they’re not important enough for you to remember their name. Therefore, always make an effort to remember names!


    I didn’t want to share too much, because I feel like the stories communicated through the book hold massive impact and really open your eyes and mind. You should definitely take a look at this book if you found interest in what I’ve shared! I highly recommend it! Feel free to tag others or share your thoughts below! And finally, I hope you found importance to these lessons whether they are new to you or maybe you already learned these lessons, but needed a reminder. ‏ — feeling great

  • Hi bSmart ladies!

    Today, I’m focusing on the core value of #EmotionalIntelligence

    Emotional Intelligence: A bSmart woman seeks to understand another's past to advocate for their future

    In order to support and empower one another, we need to actively hear the voices of the women around us and acknowledge that we come from different backgrounds and are comprised of unique identities.

    Activist and feminist icon Audre Lorde’s intersectional approach to identities recognizes that we are never defined by one identity, but are simultaneously all of our identities at once; our identities are constantly overlapping like an intricate venn diagram. At the same time, some of our identities come to the forefront depending on changing situations and contexts.


    Keeping #EmotionalIntelligence and Audre Lorde’s intersectional approach to identities in mind....

    List 3 of your identities (i.e. socioeconomic status, educational background, nationality, geographic upbringing, race, career path, gender, religion, etc. etc.) that you consider most prominent in your everyday life.

    Consider: How have these identities shaped you and socialized you to be who you are today? If you were not socialized according to these identities, would you be different?


    For me, I consider my female gender, Midwestern upbringing and values, and educational status (recent obtainment of a Bachelor’s degree) most prevalent in my current situation, especially as I am a Michigander in NYC!
    If I were not all three of these things and many more, I may not have pursued a degree in psychology (a largely female-driven major) at the University of Michigan (an in-state school for me).

  • Hi bSmart ladies!

    We all know finding a job or internship can be extremely stressful, but what about the stress we feel when we have to decide if we want to accept a job or internship. We are faced with big decisions that will most likely have a huge impact on our lives! Here are some questions to ask yourself first, before accepting a job/internship once you've been offered one.

    1. What will I specifically be doing?
    2. What benefits are there outside of money?
    3. What opportunities are there for moving up within the company? How much do I value that?
    4. What are former employees doing now?
    5. Do I truly want this?

    Happy Friday Ladies!! It’s summer time, which means the opportune time for vacation and I’ve been wondering….how do you all feel about solo traveling?! I remember my first solo vacation and it opened me up to so many incredible experiences and an self-awareness that I never had before. Since then, I’ve taken a solo trip just about every year. As I plan for my “me trip” this summer, I wanted to get your thoughts! Have you traveled by yourself? If yes, what makes it rewarding? If not, what are some things you’re afraid of? #vulnerability
