Sororities make a big deal about Big Little Reveal. They go all out in costumes, banners, decorations, and the whole nine yards. I never truly understood the experience or magnitude of it until I got a Little.
For those of you unaware of what Big Little is, it is simple. A member of the sorority applies to be a Big. This means they will not only be a sister but a mentor, friend, and possibly so much more to a Little. A Little is a new member who recently accepted a bid into a sorority. Having a Big is crucial for them. It might be their freshman year and their Big could be a senior. The Big is there to help the Little with any school work, advice, problems, mentor, and friend.
I was able to help build the Iota Beta Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi at Campbell University. I have truly grown as a person and been able to see some amazing things happen within this chapter. We recently gained 17 amazing girls in our sorority. I was lucky enough to be chosen to receive a Little. Part of me was nervous because I want to build a strong relationship with my Little and feared that she may not like me.
The day finally came to find out who my Little was. We ran into each other’s arms and hugged so tight. We played games and got to know each other a little bit. My Little is so sweet, kind, caring, and driven. I know she is going to do great things in life and within Greek life.

I cannot wait to be a role model, mentor, and best friend to someone. I hope that I am the best Big she can ask for. I love her so dearly already, and cannot wait to see where life takes us together!
