Mighty Mare Isn't Just A Hashtag
Chiara Williams

If you go to Towson University or know someone who goes there you might know of #MightyMare, if you are in Greek Life at Towson you definitely know what it is, but if you are a sister of the Phi Phi chapter of Delta Phi Espilson or know Mare personally it means so much more.

Before I get into the whole idea of Mighty Mare, i will tell you a little bit of Mare's story. My sister Mariana is the most fun-loving, caring, and stongest person you will ever meet, she also has Cystic Fibrosis. From having CF Mare needed a double lung transplant four years ago. Not only did she have one double lung transplant but about a month ago she got her second double lung transplant. Before she could get her transplant it was a lot of waiting and praying that she could be healthy enough to get on the transplant list. She finally did and got the call that her new lungs were ready. She is now in recovery and is getting stronger everyday.

Mighty Mare isn't just a hashtag, its a campaign that started right at the heart of DPhiE with Kayla Hester. Kayla is Mare's big and when she found out that Mare needed another double lung transplant she looked to her sisters for help in starting something that would one day become bigger than she could have ever imagined. The Mighty Mare campaign started with a dream and a bracelet idea. Kayla wanted to raise as much money as possoble to help with Mare's transplant and also help spread awareness of what Cystic Fibrosis is.

As sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon we strive to fund for the CF foundation as it is one of our major national philanthropies. CF hits home for us at Towson because of Mare and her journey. Since Mighty Mare has started so much as been done to spread awreness. So many different things have been sold including mugs, t-shirts, and bracelets. We have done all in our power to make our voices heard and let people know what Mighty Mare is all about.

Our biggest tribute and effort to make this known was our performance as a chapter at Greek Sing, a dance competition between the differnet greek organizations on campus. The theme for the week was superheroes and our super hero is Mare. The performance was dedicated to her and got a lot of positive feedback from the rest of greek life. Not only did we suprise Mare wirth this tribute but we also suprised greek life.


After this performance I truly knew what sisterhood was. To be able to use this performance as a platform to show what we care about and make this event something deeper than it is meant the world to us. I could have never imagined ending up in any differenct chapter because that night truly showed me how much we value our sisterhood and how much we care for each other. Honestly, we were just happy to be able to get the time and oppertunity to tribute this to Mare and did not even care about the outcome of the awards that night. In the end we did place third and I could not be happier that our hardwork was seen by others.

Being a sister of Delta Phi Epsilon has taught me to be selfless and giving to those who need it. Mighty Mare has taught me to be strong and to always know that i will have a chapter supporting me at all times no matter what I do.

We do this All For Mare!

Mighty Mare is sisterhood, Mighty Mare is support, Mighty Mare is love, Mighty Mare is our superhero.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

2036
msra.org

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

In a city that never sleeps, with constant bustling and hustling in the streets, my friend and I venture out to see what the "Big Apple" is all about.

Trip to The City of Dreams

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
