Meet the CWIB Chronicles Team

The 2018-2019 CWIB Chronicles team is complete! These talented, accomplished and dedicated writers will be delivering inspirational and informative articles to all of you every Tuesday and Thursday! Keep on reading to learn a little bit about each staff writer!

Heather Sangalang – Senior, BIT & Business Leadership 

Why CWIB: Heather loves being editor-in-chief of the CWIB Chronicles because she gets to manage the publishing of articles that aim to help members in some way. Also, Heather loves working with the staff writers and watching them develop their business skills and love for CWIB. She wants our audience to enjoy reading about CWIB’s events and members enough to stay engaged in the organization as a whole. It’s easy to just pay dues and say you’re in CWIB, but Heather wants members to take advantage of all that we have to offer.

What empowers her: Heather finds it very empowering to meet successful businesswomen. In school, it’s easy to stay in your lane, but when she goes out of her way to meet women in the workforce, it serves as a reminder that you are in charge of your own destiny. They empower Heather to be bold and chase after what makes her happy!

About her: Heather comes from a huge, tight-knit family (she has over 20 first cousins!). When not with her family, she loves hanging around DC with friends or lying in bed watching reality TV. Heather’s dream is to move to New York City someday!

Favorite quote: “Work hard and stay humble”

Emma Harwood- Sophomore, Management & Professional and Technical Writing 

Why CWIB: She is very passionate about writing and wanted to get involved with CWIB to help our readers, and herself, learn more about business topics! Becoming a staff writer is the perfect avenue to bridge her interests in writing and business together. Ultimately, she wants our readers to see all of the amazing opportunities that CWIB provides! She wants to be that person that encourages other women to branch out of their comfort zone and attend a trek, event, etc in order to get the most out of this organization.  

What empowers her: Emma feels empowered when she meets other women with similar professional goals as her. That connection allows her to immediately bond with that person and those interactions motivate her to reach her full potential.

About her: Emma has lived in 6 different places, but most recently she’s from Syracuse, New York! Her biggest passion is basketball as she plays for the women’s club team here at Virginia Tech. Ultimately, Emma would love to write for a sports magazine so she can combine her love for writing and sports into one career! She loves hanging out with friends, going to the beach, and listening to/attending concerts.
