As a new member of CWIB, Srija claims that she decided to join because the circle of business and supportive women were extremely important for her success in college.

She also liked that CWIB worked directly with the Pamplin School of Business to support and empower women. After researching more about CWIB, Srija decided to find her place in CWIB by joining the marketing team and seeking out more opportunities to get involved within the organization.


Srija has taken on a storm involving herself at Virginia Tech by joining the Innovate LLC, which is “all about entrepreneurship, learning the mindset, and how you can use those skills in life.” Within this amazing opportunity, she is helping to create a podcast called “Ignite” taking care of the social media aspect. Srija is finding what the community wants to hear with regard to all things business!


After her time at Virginia Tech has ended, she hopes to find a good job that prioritizes company culture and connecting with people. Srija believes she has a bright future due to her strong problem solving skills and her ability to talk with everyone and anyone. Using BIT and experiences within CWIB, she is looking to pursue a career in corporate stationery.
