Why did you join aKDPhi?
I joined aKDPhi because I wanted to find a completely new community than the one I have had for many years. I wanted to do something new and wanted to join an organization that could push me and change me.
How has your time in aKDPhi helped/improved/challenged you?
Although speaking up is something I am still working on, I have seen small growth with in myself with being more vocal. Being assertive is something that has always been difficult for me, but because we have to pick up a position it allows me to take lead and responsibilities when it comes to planning events for my position, and delegating tasks. This is something I am also still learning throughout my time of being active.
