But what they don’t know is the unforgettable lessons and benefits that it could teach you. Alpha Kappa Delta Phi sorority Inc. taught me so much about myself in all angles. The five pillars- sisterhood, scholarship, service, leadership and Asian Awareness- resonated within me, but it was the strong passion of all my sisters for each of these pillars that really drew me in. From the sorority, I’ve learned so much about networking, business and communication.
‘Simply said,’ it’s the ultimate experience of a lifetime – an experience unlike any other,” (Sorority Life: The True Meaning of Sisterhood). Sisterhood involves charity events and getting dressed together and maybe even being roommates. Sisterhood is true friendship, but better. Sororities aren’t about paying for your friends, it’s about making something of yourself while also bringing up other women with you. Being a part of a sisterhood is probably the best choice any female could make to help her improve herself in any way.

“Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise, I rise, I rise.,” to become a Delta Woman. When asked to express why I should be awarded the honor & pleasure of being apart this great sorority; I must admit I was a bit overwhelmed but also very humbled. However, I am reminded of the great women Delta Sigma Theta has helped mold some of the most influential women in the world. I want to be apart of the most illustrious sorority organization.
Kayla Fratt ’16, a current WES Scholar from Wisconsin, was enchanted by the Rocky Mountains, which led her to find Colorado College, the type of small liberal arts school she always knew she wanted to attend. Fratt had never heard of the Woman’s Educational Society, but was pleased to receive the generous award for her accomplishments. WES had the ability to not only reduce Fratt’s loans and financial stress, but also offer her a group to trust in for assistance. “WES also is a really great community of supportive women and mentors, which has been a great network of emotional support,” Fratt says. Fratt also appreciates the impact of the book scholarship that WES Scholars receive each semester.
I enjoyed reading Goffman article “The presentation of self in everyday life”, it reminded me of sorority recruitment or “Rush” as it was formally referred to. With Henslin introduction and quoting Shakespeare I was able to reflect to sorority life. Depending on what sororities are present on campus could affect the how rush is perceived. There are days were the chapter all matches and everyone appears to be friendly and interested in the potential recruits. The potential recruits want these upperclassman to like them and invite them into this secret organization.

Through America’s charity, she better becomes fit for the role princess. When under a stressful dilemma, Lady America does not forget to show charity by asking, “would you want to come with me” (118) without hesitation. America offers this marvelous opportunity to a stranger, whom she has met moments before. Through her offer, a rejected, little girl is given an extraordinary gift, the chance and hope for a better life. Another example of America’s charity is when America “tentatively reached out for Celeste’s hand, fingers brushing against hers” (213), even though there is pressure of competition with the other girls.
These letters help distinguish SDT from any other sorority and help unify them under one heading. These letters also appear on T-shirts, sweat shirts and sweat pants. The repetition of these letters, which we kept seeing throughout the house, proves how much meaning and value the girls put in them. The new members of SDT all have to learn how to adapt to being in a sorority. They have to learn how to be selfless and look at their sorority sisters as more than just friends.
When I was a young girl my mother use to tell me “The same amount of work you put in is the same amount of reward you will receive.” This specific saying stuck in my head, because I interpreted it as If you want to educate others you must first educate yourself. I felt to accomplish this it would be best to join groups that would improve my personal and professional skills. This was my motivation behind doing things like pursuing volunteer groups, jobs and mentoring positions. My current positions are a job at my local H-E-B, Social media director of an all girl group called Ladies Of Distinction and a position in my school’s National Honor Society.
I always sought out to be the best example of an empowered woman, especially in this time in our country where the American woman is still not held in the same respect as the American man. I firmly believe in girl power and supporting your fellow women, it is one of the most important duties in my life when I see sexism still being a part of today’s society to try and defend the gender equality movement to the extent of my ability. Strawderman showed me to support other women, bringing out the best in a friend is one of the best feelings of accomplishment in life. At Sweet Briar, the time i’ve spent on campus has given me major flashbacks and visions of my Strawderman life. The rural Virginia campus, tender horses, and amazing faculty and students all make me feel so welcome into this incredibly nurturing environment I have not seen at any other college.
She also works with her church to conduct mission projects, help in the nursery, and assist with youth events. Clearly, her involvement shows a young lady with an eclectic array of activities. These activities only further to enhance her character and her work ethic. She could easily just focus on her academics, but she clearly knows that a well-rounded selection of activities only serves to make her a stronger person. I heartily recommend Miss Elizabeth Peck for the scholarship for which she is applying.
