I was lucky enough to become an intern for Campus Calm in October of 2011. While doing some research for one of my college courses, I came across this site and it immediately spoke to me. As a recovering stessoholic, I related to Campus Calm’s mission of helping young female professionals and students achieve success without overworking or overwhelming themselves. I, like so many, have seen what tolls stress can have on the body and the mind and wanted to be part of the solution to end this problem. Not only could I help myself and learn from other inspiring women, but I also hoped to influence others along the way.
During my time with Campus Calm, I have had the luxury of learning from Maria Pascucci, Campus Calm’s owner and creator. As my mentor and boss, she has taught me by example what it means to be a strong woman and leader in the community. I have learned to face some of my scariest vulnerabilities and, even more daunting, blog about them. She has taught me to redefine success and reminded me that happiness has no price tag. Finally, she has taught me that there is no such thing as perfection. Rather, we are all perfectly imperfect and that’s just fine with me!
So, although the time has come for me to step down as an intern and move on to pursue other endeavors, I will be eternally grateful for the time I spent with Campus Calm. It has inspired me to continue chipping away at the perfection myth and to dedicate my career to helping others find their own version of happiness/success.
Thank you to all those who read my blogs and supported me along the way. I was so fortunate to be surrounded by so much love and support. Maria, thank you for being my friend, my mentor, and my inspiration. I was blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from you.
