What I like: I love the Harry Potter series, cooking and baking, any Miyazaki film, movie soundtracks, and generally being active outdoors.

What I do: I love to break dance, rock climb, kayak, study, and do any type of arts and crafts. I’m involved with the Hip Hop Collective, a student organization on campus, and with the larger dance community of Florida.

Why I joined aKDPhi: I never envisioned myself in a sorority, but as I met more and more sisters I saw how strong, capable, and supportive they were. They shattered the stereotypes of Greek life that I had believed, and I realized that this was a very special sisterhood. The decision to join was based in the realization that there was so much more in both my college experience, and within myself, that I wanted to explore.
