Positions held in aKDPhi: 

What I like: I enjoy being outdoors (especially being near the water), as well as doing anything sporty, artsy, or musical in nature. I like the colors blue and purple, Harry Potter, Studio Ghibli, my two dogs, and exploring and learning more about our world. My favorite show is “Criminal Minds”,  but I also truly love a good anime.

What I do: I absolutely love to dance, study mixed martial arts, and create/listen to music. When handed a book, I’m known to disappear for hours on end. I also like to run and tend to sing along to every song on the radio. Above all, I love to spend time with family and friends.

Why I joined aKDPhi: I joined aKDPhi to encourage myself to explore the unfamiliar, in many senses. I hope to witness great personal growth, build strong relationships and sisterhood, and to become a better, more confident individual overall. Entering into college life, I had been staunchly opposed to the idea of joining a sorority. Although I was shocked to discover that several role models of mine had gone on to become sisters of aKDPhi, I was still uncomfortable with the thought of joining something I knew nothing about. When I incredulously attended my first recruitment event, I was pleasantly surprised to find a room full of driven, talented, and hard-working ladies with similar aspirations and dreams. Now, I find myself only looking forward to the future and the great number of opportunities that await me.
