Why did you join aKDPhi?

I wanted to surround myself with a community of people who would support me in everything that I do whether it be personally or professionally. aKDPhi fostered a very safe and welcoming environment that I had never experienced before as I grew up with only younger brothers. Through only my short time in aKDPhi so far, I have seen significant growth within myself both personally and professionally, and I want to continue to surround myself with such empowering people who inspire me to be the best version of myself.

How has your time in aKDPhi helped/improved/challenged you?

aKDPhi has challenged me to become the best student, friend, sibling, and person that I can be. Through aKDPhi, I have learned that emotional vulnerability is empowering and that anything can be accomplished if you surround yourself with the right community of people.
