What I like: Hanging with friends and family, annoying my brothers and friends, going to the beach, floating at the beach, sleeping at the beach, traveling, learning languages or about other cultures, watching action/thrillers, (window) shopping, Dogs, my little brothers, you if you’re nice, sunny cold days, human babies, sushi, plain white rice, the color blue, abstract things, mysteries, roller coasters, fast/exhilarating things, theme parks, Disney

Why I joined aKDPhi: Every sister was someone that I could look up to and aspire to be. The idea of having a constant support system that would guide and push me to be the best version of myself is what attracted me the most. I also wanted to have something close-knit that I could call home and family forever.
