“Becoming an Eisenhower Youth Leader is an opportunity to have a positive impact in my surroundings. Very much linked to the topic of the conference, I am personally concerned with the employment situation in Spain, especially for the millennial generation. Through personal post-graduate experience and from listening to my friends both in Spain and Jordan who are finding themselves in my same situation, I know for a fact that action must be taken.”
Tamara Darwich’s project was to create a support group for young women at the start of their careers. ‘The Zillennial Squad’ aims to motivate and empower young women and use the power of mentorship and networks to achieve this. Her final project report takes elements from her thesis and infographics created after interviews she conducted as well as first-hand experiences. Darwich spoke eloquently at EF’s Women’s Leadership conference in London, on a panel on ‘Investing in others: mentoring as a path to individual and collective success.’
