Positions held in aKDPhi: 

What I like: I love to listen to music, travel (my favorite places are New York, LA, and Chicago). I also enjoy trying new workout classes, and have taken 100 Pure Barre classes. Besides working out, I also like trying new foods, specifically ethnic foods, and I love ice cream and cake.

What I do: Health and fitness are an important part of my daily life. I really enjoy going to workout classes. I even tried an aqua cycling class over the summer in NYC. When I have down time, I also like to bake (desserts are my weakness).

Why I joined aKDPhi: I wanted to make meaningful relationships with the sisters and others in the Greek community as well as being part of meaningful community service work and programs. I knew that sisterhood and service were some of the pillars of aKDPhi and those pillars are some of the things that I really value. I wanted to create a better version of myself personally and professionally. Also, being a part of the Asian community at UF and Gainesville and taking an active role in promoting cultural inclusion.
