Why did you join aKDPhi?
It was about making the most of my college years by stepping out of my comfort zone and surrounding myself with the most empowering women I have ever met. aKDPhi has taught be so much about myself and about the world we live in. It is a grew of sisters who are there when I am down and when I am happiest. They push me to be my best version and support me through my college journey. With aKDPhi, I get a chance, a woman of color, to speak, act and make a difference.
