Undergrad Stories: Women’s History Month Edition: Meet Natalie Swec

Published: Saturday, October 8, 2022

Meet Natalie Swec (she/her), a 3rd year Fine Arts and Business major with a specialization in Digital Arts. 

Natalie is currently on an 8-month co-op term with WUSA as a Graphic Designer. For the second week of Women’s History Month, we asked Natalie what this means to her, read more below!  

Women’s history month to me is a time to look back at everything women have accomplished. All the movements and the progress women have made to be where we are today.   

At the university of waterloo, I don’t feel I have been faced with any barriers as a female student and employee. I believe I am fortunate enough to have experienced equal opportunities as my peers and colleagues. 

I’m not sure I have one specific female hero. I take inspiration from all the women in my life. I’ve been able to learn from them and their experiences. 

The advice I would give to my younger self is not to worry about the small things. It’s important to step back and look at what you’ve accomplished and be proud of what you’ve been able to do. 

Thank you, Natalie, for sharing your thoughts with us! Here’s to more empowerment.
