Kappa Delta isn’t just another obligation I have or another date to write down in my planner. Kappa Delta has shaped my way of life. As a senior, I wake up each day more motivated to make the most of my last active year as a Kappa Delta. Each day, I do my best to reach out to someone new.
Have you ever heard of the saying, “You get out what you put in?”
As cheesy as it sounds, it’s the best piece of advice I’ve ever received. If I could write a list of things that I have given to the organization, and compared it to a list of things I have gotten out of the organization, they would be equal.
I’m a firm believer that several little things along way add up to an amazing lifestyle, and Kappa Delta is no different. An “ah ha” moment wasn’t necessary for me to fall in love with this organization. It was all of smaller yet meaningful moments that have shaped my four-year journey in Kappa Delta.
That being said, my favorite memory over the last four years was serving as the Vice President of Public Relations. It was the most amazing feeling holding such a large leadership position. Serving on council is like nothing else.
My main goal as the VP-PR was to make sure everyone on campus and in the community knew how great Kappa Delta is. I wanted everyone to love our organization for the same reasons that I do.
In February 2016, I attended the National Collegiate Training Academy (NCTA), in order to learn more about my position. It was an unforgettable experience: meeting hundreds of different Kappa Delta women across the country, and remembering we all share similar bonds and values.
I recommend that every member gets involved in some way because my term on council was the absolute best part of my four years. I learned more about myself and my leadership style, and I also learned more about the organization as a whole.
Always remember that every single member of Zeta Kappa has something to bring to the chapter. There is a reason you are a Kappa Delta, you just have to discover it. Always live honorable, beautiful and highest.
