The Emerald Newsletter | Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Spring 2017 - Page 33

There are three things on my stole that have a great significance in my life. First, my degree. I am a first generation college student and obtaining my bachelors degree in criminology has not only been a huge accomplishment of mine, but my family's as well. Our Kappa Delta Chi letters and shield are what makes up most of my stole. Finding a group of women on a large campus that have the same goals and values as I do made my college experience that much better. KDChi has given me sisters that I can always rely on and a sisterhood that has brought so much joy and happiness into my life. Lastly,

the position I held for a year and a half my last few semesters of undergrad. If you would've told me my freshman year that I would be president of an organization, I would've thought that would never happen. I joined KDChi as a freshman and my passion for the organization started then. Being president of KDChi has taught me so many lessons that I have taken with me into my "adult life". Being president taught me to have patience, always listen to what others has to say, be there for others when they need you, give words of encouragement, and set an example for those that are younger. These three symbols on my stole will forever be cherished.
