What I do: Vietnamese Student Organization and Freshman Leadership Program.

Why I joined aKDPhi: Even though I was in organizations like VSO and FLP and found friends there, I was still looking for something more. Those organizations were huge and it was hard to get close to every member. I wanted to find a group that was smaller so that I could be close to each member. With aKDPhi, I found my closest group of friends here at UF, I found a new family. Along the way, aKDPhi taught me how to be confident and how to step out of my comfort zone in order to pursue the things I wanted to do.
