#Motivation Monday: Meet Director Nina Rezai

We are so very excited to have some wonderful women join us as members of the YWCA Board of Directors!  We plan to take a few Monday’s in the next month or so to introduce them to you!   Next up is Ms. Nina Rezai

Nina is joining us starting this Board term, and we are so glad to have her.  Ms. Rezai workes for the Public Works department in Campbell County, and we know she will be a great asset to our Board and furthering our mission!

We asked each of the new members a set of questions, and here are Nina’s answers!

What does the YWCA mean to you?

To me, the YWCA represents hope and opportunity for women from all walks of life. To me having the YWCA in our area is a reminder that regardless of your situation there is always somewhere to turn a place that can provide options and opportunities when you need them most.

What motivates you to give back to your community?

I have been fortunate enough to grow up in this community and I feel it is my duty to have a hand in ensuring that it stays supportive and growing for the future generations. It is important that when you are able to remain willing to give back to the community who has shaped the person you are becoming.

How you do empower women and/or promote diversity in your own life?

Always speaking up and encouraging others to as well. Everyone can offer a unique perspective, but it is important to share your thoughts and opinions when you have a seat at the table.

What song is your favorite empowerment jam!

What book has meant the most to you in your life?

I’m still thinking about this one!
