Abby Tremain with EWI President and Executive Director, Marga Fripp on her farewell gathering with the EWI team!

Abby Tremain, served as EWI’s Events and Operation Intern for the past 4 months. She spent her time here working diligently and efficiently and was an extremely valuable member of our team. We are grateful for her work and appreciate her thoughtful reflection on her time with the EWI community.

“Working at Empowered Women International has been a truly wonderful experience! During my time at EWI, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with extraordinary women from all over the world who share the same vision of empowerment and social justice.

As an intern at EWI, I have been fortunate enough to have been able to take an active role in a number of projects, most memorably, EWI’s Artisan Gifts & Food Marketplace.

This event, featuring more than thirty of EWI’s entrepreneurs, was a highlight of my time at the organization. From assisting the entrepreneurs to having the opportunity to work with such a passionate volunteer team, this event was a great experience and allowed me to meet many amazing people! From my time at EWI I take away the benefits of working with such a wonderful team who are all incredibly devoted to the mission of EWI.

I could have not asked to have worked with a more amazing group of women who put so much heart and energy into the work that they do. The camaraderie that exists between members of the EWI team is one that you could not duplicate in any other setting. I know just how fortunate I am to have had this incredible opportunity.”

We wish Abby the best of luck in all of her future endeavors and we know there are great things ahead for her!
