Confidence is the New Black

Confidence is the most essential building block in discovering who you are. It is also the most difficult concept for most woman and men.

Coco Chanel said it best: “A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.” That simple. No exceptions. Every woman should have the confidence to do what she wants, when she wants in order to understand who she is.

Confidence is the foundation for Kappa Delta Sorority. The organization at large works to create and promote confidence in girls and woman across the country. Each chapter works at a local level in order to obtain global results.

This includes working with local Girls Scouts and woman’s shelters in order to instill confidence and allow them to grow and individuals. 

Every year in February, Kappa Delta Sorority will be having their annual Confidence Coalition. It is a part of the “You Make Me Smile” Campaign, encouraging woman to be themselves because being yourself is beautiful. The UCLA Confidence Coalition is unique in that every Kappa Delta chapter in the state of California comes to LA to help with this campaign. 

Blue balloons with the Confidence Coalition logo and a personalized message on the back are handed out to woman and girls across campus, throughout Westwood and all around Santa Monica. The members do not ask anything of the public, they just hope for a smile and a day to be made. 

Remember that while everyone has a right to be confident, it is something that can take years to develop and minutes to lose. As a part of Greek Life it is our responsibility to be leaders in the community. So walk with purpose, grace your face with a smile, and be yourself because confidence is a woman's greatest accessory!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
