International Women's Friendship Month and What It Means

Happy International Women's Friendship Month; how are you celebrating?

International Women's Friendship Month and What It Means
Confidence Coalition

Everyone has to deal with their confidence levels. Whether you have a lot of confidence, or just a little, it is something that we have to address throughout our lives. It may be a constant fight for some of you. There are a lot of things in our day-to-day lives that knock our confidence down and make us feel that we are not good enough.

Kappa Delta Sorority seeks to change that.

September is International Women's Friendship Month. This is a month dedicated to celebrating women and girls' friendships no matter their age. The Confidence Coalition was founded with one sole purpose: to celebrate women and help instill confidence in them. You may be wondering how any of this links together. Well, Kappa Delta actually founded the Confidence Coalition movement. Kappa Delta also originally created National Women's Friendship Day and it expanded to the entire month of September. Pretty cool, right?

It is pretty cool. Throughout the month of September, Kappa Delta chapters all over the country put on events that celebrate women's friendship, and in turn help celebrate and promote confidence in all of these women. Have you ever had a friendship with someone that pushed you to be better than you are? Or someone who just helped you feel more confident when you were with them? That is what Kappa Delta wants to celebrate with International Women's Friendship Month.

The Confidence Coalition is doing a series throughout the month of September titled "Friendship Unscripted". The trailer and first video can be seen below.

Kappa Delta helps celebrate these things by continuing to commit themselves to the goals of the Confidence Coalition (themselves, really) and always remembering that everyone deserves to feel great about who they are. They host events like the "You Make Me Smile" Campaign. This campaign is where members of Kappa Delta take balloons (or anything else really; balloons are just super popular for this campaign) and write inspiring, confidence-instilling quotes on them. They then hand out these balloons on their college campus. University of Central Florida made a video of theirs:

One of the best things about International Women's Friendship Month and the Confidence Coalition is that anyone can participate. There is a strong focus on promoting confidence in women, but there is also an importance of promoting confidence in everyone. In every person you come across you can instill some confidence in them.

It is easy to get involved with this movement. Specifically for girls, teens, collegians, and women you can go to this link and sign the pledge. Take a stand to promote confidence in those who may not have a lot of it.

Kappa Delta also has an article titled "Five Ways to Celebrate IWFM".

So, how are you going to celebrate International Women's Friendship Month and the Confidence Coalition?

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
