Why did you join aKDPhi?

I was a second semester freshman when I joined aKDPhi. I had explored the campus and become involved in various communities, however, I was looking to truly step outside of my comfort and challenge myself to impact the community in a bigger way. I'm always looking for ways to develop myself, and along the way, I discovered that these wonderful sxsters were able to help me reach my goals and continue to do so.

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

I've learned to become more vulnerable not only with myself but with others. I've grown more comfortable with voicing my opinions and leading others to succeed in their passions.
