6)How did your experience in Greek life help you get to where you are today?
   
I can honestly say that I would not be the person I am today without my experience in fraternity/sorority life and it continues to impact my life as an alumna. After graduating I was chosen to go on a service trip with AST to Hawaii. After that, I took a job with AST as an educational consultant and was able to travel to different chapters across the US. it was an unforgettable experience. I met women that share the same values and ritual as I do and made connections that I still keep today. It was amazing to truly see sisterhood on a national level. Not many women get that opportunity. I continue to learn and share my experiences of leadership, philanthropy, and values. Honestly the fraternity/sorority experience does not end after graduation! Remember that this is a life time commitment/membership. Although I wouldn't change one experience as an undergrad, my experiences as an alumna have been just as enriching. Remember to never say you "were" in a sorority/fraternity, YOU STILL ARE!!!
7)What was your favorite part about being a part of Greek life?
