What I like: Smiling, laughing, fuzzy things, my dog, things with elephants on them, amusement parks, doing spontaneous things, watching movies, late-night car rides with the windows down and music blasting (when I am not driving), going to the beach, my LS’s, my lineage, eating food, and drinking boba tea hehe

What I do: Cooking, baking, online shopping, doing hair, makeup, and nails, working out, playing sports, dancing, singing, designing (literally anything dealing with design), taking pictures, listening to music, and trying to volunteer a lot

Why I joined aKDPhi: I joined aKDPhi my freshmen year, knowing I wanted to immerse myself into the community and with everything UF had to offer me at the time. I am all about personal growth, so it was a no-brainer that joining this amazing organization would allow me to do just that, while building lifelong connections. I have always yearned for deep connections and unbreakable bonds from the people in my life, and that is exactly what aKDPhi was offering me. I was drawn in by the leadership roles each sxster plays, the professionalism of each sxster at their events, and the impact they left on me from the very first impression. I knew the sxsters of aKDPhi would share my same passion, drive, commitment, and motivation for what they put their minds towards, and I wanted to surround myself with powerful and influential women just like them. Now, I have the blessing to call them my sxsters <3.
