Students Making a Difference

Jon LeClair, SON '20

A Dream Realized

“I feel like someone has given me a chance to succeed, and I am inspired to prove my worth and to give something back. Having the opportunity to study health care at the GW School of Nursing, during a time when the future of health care policy is being hotly debated, has made me realize the importance of intersecting policy with practice, and public and social advocacy with professionalism." -Jon LeClair, SON ’18, recipient of the Caroline Fredricka Holdship Trust

GW and Girl Rising

“The Girl Rising internship allowed me to gain the hands-on experience I need to pursue my interests in working in India on gender-based violence, inequalities, and diseases. This experience has not only changed my life, but it has also clarified how to translate my passion for girls and women into pragmatic action.”
