Why I joined aKDPhi: After my first semester at UF, I still felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. There wasn’t an organization that I felt a strong connection with, and it was easy to get lost amongst their crowds of members. That’s when I decided to consider Greek life, specifically, aKDPhi. And now, here I am, no longer an outsider. I’ve found a group of girls whom I can call my sisters. With these girls, I know I will never be left behind. They will comfort me when I’m troubled, they will eat with me when I don’t want to eat alone, they will rescue me at 3 AM on campus when my car battery dies, but most of all, they will challenge me to constantly better myself.
