What I like: The color yellow and sort of anything that relates to it, such as the sun :) I like super fine tipped pens in many colors. I love eating food that other people cook for me, watching Korean dramas, meeting new people, Tumblring, tweeting, Facebooking, and finding nifty cool stationery/office supplies, miniature or oddly shaped things. I adore activities at the park or beach such as flying kites or having picnics. Occasionally I enjoy bowling.

What I do: I dabble in everything from volunteering at Sidney Lanier and being a TA  to being a part of UF Student Government and the AASU community.

Why I joined aKDPhi: I joined aKDPhi simply because, in such a short time, it gave me something I never even knew I was missing. I learned so much not only about everything around me but also a lot about who I am as a person. I got to meet sisters that I know will always cherish and treasure all my life. But really, aKDPhi gave me an avenue to have constant support and motivation in anything that I want to do.
