Tahbata Zuniga Diaz, 2024 AAUW Naperville Area NCCWSL Participant

AAUW (American Association of University Women) Naperville¬†Area Branch has selected Tahbata Zuniga Diaz, a North Central College student leader, to attend the National Conference of College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL). This year’s conference is May 30 to June 1, 2024, at the University of Maryland near Washington, D.C. About 1,000 young women leaders are expected to attend. AAUW Naperville Area will provide up to $1000 towards registration and travel. This sponsorship is funded by the branch’s annual Used Book and Media Sale.

Tahbata’s major is Political Science and English Writing. She wants to attend NCCWSL because she dreams of living in D.C. one day and being part of communities that bring about positive change in our society. This conference will be a good learning and growth opportunity.

Tahbata plans to network and also learn how to use her skills to create positive change for our country. She is a firm believer in the value of knowledge and the ability to travel, so she is most interested in seeing how she can bring what she learned back home. Additionally, there is a session on storytelling which brings her two majors together, and hopefully is another way she can connect with and help others.
