You are always told that going to college is going to be some of the best times of your life. I always though that it was just something you were told. Considering no one ever really tells you about the mental breakdowns and the late night studying associated with it. I decided to get out of my comfort zone and join a sorority. It was one of the best decisions I ever made and I wouldn't want to experience it with anyone else.
I was never the most popular girl in school, but I was never the least. I was somewhere in the middle confused about where my life was going to take me. I joined the spring semester right after it seemed as though my whole world fell apart. I guess thats what drew me into joining in the first place, knowing that there is something out there bigger than just yourself. When I came to college I used to be that girl would would stand there and go "if you are in a sorority you are basically just paying for friends." Little did I know that the friendships I would gain are priceless.
There's something so amazing to be surrounded with such an amazing group of girls from all different backgrounds all working towards one common goal. After joining, I really got the opportunity to be involved with different activities on campus and the opportunity to meet so many new people. Everyone in this group has taught me something that I can carry with me for a lifetime. I guess more than anything, they saved me from the fear of the unknown. The unknown will always still exist, I will just have so many people to experience it with. Most importantly they saved me from myslef. They saved me from the person I used to be. I learned so much about how to better myself in the process. I learned to never pass judgement on other people, how to appreciate everyones differences and how to be selfless. Through our philanthropies, I have learned to appreciate everything that you are given and to never take anything for granted.
I have become the person I am today because of them. Thanks for bringing out the best in me.
