I can demonstrate my commitment to this society by being actively involved with events that we plan or attend. I will also share my values and incorporate these values in activities that we do to empower each other through academics, leadership and service. Advocating about my values is a form of leadership that I like to share with others to introduce them to my culture and the values that I stand by. I also want to be involved in planning events to empower not only Lambda Sigma, but the Pace community and Pleasantville
