HCIU: What made you want to join SDT?AR: The genuine friendships everyone has with each other made me want to join SDT.

HCIU: When did you realize that you were interested in running for president?AR: I realized I wanted to run for president when I understood the impact that I could have on each girl’s experience at IU and within SDT. I also knew this was the best way for me to have a personal connection with everyone in my chapter.

HCIU: What is your favorite part about being apart of SDT?AR: My favorite part of being in SDT is that there is always someone there to support me and be a friend. Even if it’s just for fun or for school, I know there are always people surrounding me that are there to push me to be the best that I can be.

HCIU: What is your favorite part about being president?AR: My favorite part of being president was being able to work to instill values that are important to me into the structure of our chapter, and watch the women in my chapter grow and thrive in the last year. It has been an unbelievably rewarding experience having this position.  

HCIU: What is the most difficult part about being president?AR: The most difficult part about being president was learning that sometimes things don’t always go as planned and you have to be able to think on your feet and trust your gut in high-pressure situations.

HCIU: What advice would you give someone who is considering being president of a sorority or any other organization on campus?AR: Make sure it’s something you’re really passionate about because unless you are willing to put your whole heart into it, you won’t live up to your own expectations or the expectations of others.
