Alpha Psi - Spring 2017
It's pretty safe to say I'm a little quirky and nerdy; coming into college, I felt that I had to hide that side of me to make friends and thrive in my preconceived notions of what college was. The sisters of alpha Kappa Delta Phi showed me how to own my quirks, to find my confidence, and to speak my voice. My bigs, line sisters, and littles have been integral to the process of finding my identity in college. Last December, I was incredibly nervous for my first poster presentation ever, where I was presenting my immunology research that I had dedicated numerous hours to for over a year. Never had I expected anyone to show up to a "boring" poster presentation, but to my surprise, my bigs showed up engaged and ready to absorb any information that I would present to them. In the following semester, an entire crowd of my line sisters and littles showed up to support me, my poster presentation, and my passion for research. Embarrassingly, I cried of happiness after the poster presentation ended when everyone left. My line sisters and family didn't have to take time out of their days to support me at my poster presentation, which, mind you, is not the most entertaining, but they did.
Unconditional support is what I found in aKDPhi and is what you will too. I promise.
