What is your most memorable Theta moment?
There have been so many amazing moments with my siblings since I have joined! It honestly is really difficult to pick just one. However, memorable moments are made every time I meet another sibling. Through Theta Delta Sigma I have met amazing people and I'm thankful for each one of them!
How has being a Theta impacted your life?
Theta has impacted my life tremendously. It has really helped to open my to the different lives people lead. I have also learned a lot about myself and what I can achieve if I set my mind to it. Becoming a Theta has been so good for me and I have grown so much since I joined. It has helped me develop into a leader among my peers, realize my professional strengths, and become more culturally competent.
So, I've heard that you're kind of a big deal and won a prestigious award recently. What's that all about?
Being named "Sibling of the Year," was amazing! It was so unexpected and I am grateful. It feels awesome to be recognized for all of the hard work that I have put in throughout the last year, but I definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without the rest of the Pack behind me! For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.
As a founding member of Theta Delta Sigma at your university, what recommendations do you have for others who are willing to start that journey?
Though starting a new chapter isn't always a smooth process, you can expect that it will be a rewarding experience. Be patient with your self and others. People will make mistakes. You will make mistakes. Just make sure that when you do make them, you learn from them so that you don't make them again. It's all part of the growing process. Rely on your siblings and together you will be able to accomplish whatever you set yours minds to do.
