Each week HCWC will spotlight a woman within the Harvard community or beyond whose work and actions we deem to be “crush worthy.” We encourage you to participate in our #WCW via your various social media platforms by sharing the women we honor each week to bring light to their important work.
Who she is: Elizabeth Melampy ’16
Why she’s our #WCW: Elizabeth’s nominator and sorority sister, Meredith Clark, said the following:
“Liz stands for everything that I define as a strong woman and a great sister. She is always there and willing to help with whatever you need, is always available when you need someone to talk to. She is so incredibly kind, warm, and eloquent. She stands up for what she believes in, and does so respectfully. She ran the Boston Marathon two years in a row, despite having tried the year of the bombing (read about her story here). She embodies everything that I thought of when I thought of sisterhood when I joined a sorority, and she continues to inspire me to be the best student, leader, and sister. We’ll greatly miss her next year!”
