What sorority do you represent?

I represent Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc. We are the Almighty Alpha Chapter started first at UNC.

Why did you choose to join?

As a first year, I struggled a lot with transitioning into campus life and academics. I missed volunteering in my community as well as having leadership opportunities. Most clubs took community service as an opportunity to rack up points or to just place an experience on a resume. But I wanted the type of service that was never rewarded and was given purely from the heart, not expecting anything in return. I chose to join Theta Nu Xi because of the lifelong friendship, leadership, and because of their selfless beliefs towards community service. Every year our chapter wins the service award for putting in the most selfless amount of hours towards service for others in the Chapel Hill community.

Favorite Greek goddess? (or any goddess really)

My favorite Greek Goddess is the Goddess Athena. I admire her wisdom and strength, plus who wouldn't wanna be a tough goddess of war?

If you could go to any concert - at any point in time - who would it be?

My dream concert would be the band Young the Giant, specifically at the Ritz in Raleigh!

What’s the best thing that’s happened to you this year?

The best thing that has happened to me this year started off kinda sad. I ran in my 3rd 5k at UNC and I sprained my ankle. I thought it was over for me but I pushed through and it paid off. I improved my time by a whole four minutes. I did not win, but I beat my best time and that was the best reward of all!

Sigma Sigma Sigma

Why did you choose to join?

Making the transition from high school to college was very tough. I was looking for my family away from home; I wanted to be a part of something. I know it’s corny to hear, but you truly find your sisters and future bridesmaids when you join a sorority.

Favorite Greek goddess? (or any goddess really)

Artemis
