Why I joined aKDPhi: I joined aKDPhi out of pure curiosity and to do something completely out of my comfort zone. I also wanted to get more involved on campus as I did not have a clear sense of what I wanted to do in the future or how I wanted to expand my college experience. My sister had joined a year before me and I saw so much growth, confidence, and happiness within her since she had joined and I wanted to see what the organization could do for me. I would have never thought that I would join an Asian-Interest sorority but it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my college career thus far and I’m glad I branched out and tried something new. The people that I have met so far play such a crucial role in my college career already and I am excited for the future.
