As university students with an eagerness to learn, untapped autonomy and more time on our hands, what can we do that is worthwhile? While we are growing in academic knowledge, it is easy to overlook how little we invest in growing as a person. After all, how can we have a truly open mind without an open heart?
The Little Women of Lowana aim to create opportunities for young women to grow by seeing through new lenses, helping these in need, and making lasting friendships that continue to exist outside of that one tutorial.
