Hello and welcome back to my “Woman of the Week” feature. If you’re wondering what on earth I’m talking about then maybe you’d like to check out my first one here. To quickly sum it up, it’s a feature about women who inspire and encourage me.
Without further ado, my second Woman of the Week post goes to another former housemate – Reesha: Booker reader and tea-drinker extraordinaire.
I admire Reesha so much because she’s a go-getter. She gets involved with stuff and throws her heart and soul into it. Whether it’s working for a charity or doing a business module on top of her ridiculous amounts of reading she has for her English Literature course, or even posting on her fantastic blog (shameless plug – read it here!) she gives it all she’s got. Spend half an hour with her and you realise she’s the kind of woman who’s going places.
Unlike some students who love their subject and only their subject, Reesha also takes an interest in a wide variety of other things like politics and economics. She makes me want to broaden my knowledge of the world and be a bit of a girl boss, just like her.
Just this summer she beat hundreds of other students to get an internship in a rather well established business (no, I won’t tell you where, you nosey parker, you…) Reesha, an English Lit student at Sheffield University, got picked for an internship to do with numbers over a bunch of guys who study Economics at Cambridge (true story!).
Reesha, if you’re reading this, I honestly couldn’t be prouder of you, your entrepreneurial spirit and your go-getter attitude. I can’t wait to see you conquering the world someday!
