​​Empress Helwig

Empress Helwig, ’15. Her name commands attention, and she is as unique as her name. Empress is luminescent. Her presence is inspiring and calming at the same time. This young woman with an old soul possesses the wisdom of a deep thinker. Empress desires to improve the world through her own creative ways. Her self-created movement of “Hugs for Hope” raised money for charity and she was a founding member of our School’s Gay/Straight Alliance. She was also extremely active in the National Association of Negro Business and Professional Women’s Clubs as she had innate motivation to help make the world a better place for women of color. She is a feminist, she is courageous, and she is a non-conformist. We are sure that she will thrive at Wellesley College!
