Why did you join aKDPhi?
I joined aKDPhi to find a cultural community on this big campus as well as to develop my professional skills. Through aKDPhi I was able to find a community away from home, I think the sisterhood aspect is one of my favorites, I also thought this whole sorority thing was super cool because it combines so many aspects of different orgs into one, like service, academic excellence and social. It has also pushed me out of my comfort zone a lot and I know I have grown a lot from the last few years.
How has your time in aKDPhi helped/improved/challenged you?
I think through aKDPhi my professional skills and leadership skills have really developed, and it has pushed me to grow since my freshman year!
