Why did you join aKDPhi?
Coming into college I really wanted to find a support system with those who shared similar values and backgrounds. After seeing the professionalism, sisterhood, and diverse personalities within aKDPhi, I knew then that this is what I wanted to be a part of. Being surrounded by resilient and empowering women, I am constantly reminded of my own capabilities.
