Mahatma Ghandi once said, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

Hi! My name is Chloe Fedor-Locklear and for years, this particular quote has held so much power, value and inspiration towards my passions and ambitions.

I am a senior at East Carolina University, where I am majoring in Social Work. Following graduation in May of 2020, I plan to obtain my graduate degree in Social Work and then conquer my dream of becoming a Clinical Social Worker in the United States Air Force, where I hope to work with families and children with a concentration in mental health, substance abuse and family advocacy.

I am the oldest of seven siblings and have always taken on the role of taking care of others and serving others, which represents some of the reasons I believe Social Work is my true calling.

My life goals are to become successful in all aspects of life, including financially, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, in addition to providing a healthy lifestyle, security, and a brighter future for my family.

Through my social work degree, I dream of impacting the lives of families and youth, while also aiding these individuals on the road to a more positive life. Daughters of Worth aligns with my career aspirations by first helping me create a more empowered and positive life for myself, and second teaching me how to impact the community in a positive manner through empowerment and education.

Through this non-profit, I have learned how vital it is to not only aid females in the knowledge of self love, self care, support, and empowerment, but to specifically help the girls in our community understand how important and valuable that they truly are.

The key concept that I have taken away from Ms. Liles and the Daughters of Worth community, so far, is that even small portions of love, support and care can completely change the world!
