Lucy Dornbach '19

With the help of a stipend from the Center for Ethical Leadership in Action (CELA), Lucy Dornbach ’19 is interning with the Academy for Women’s Empowerment (AWE). AWE is a Minneapolis-based social enterprise that aims to unleash the potential within every woman.

“I’m excited about working with, and learning from, young girls and women to tap into the power they possess, which often gets lost within them due to societal influences,” she says.

As Lucy explains it, Saint Ben’s has helped to unlock that potential in her. Now CELA is allowing her to lean into that potential by making it practical for her to accept this unpaid internship.

“CSB has opened so many doors that were never even on my mind previously,” she says. “Without Saint Ben’s and what I have learned in my time here thus far, I don’t think I would have the courage to pursue the passions I have today.”
