WHY AKDPHI?

Here we take the time to reflect on why exactly sisters chose aKDPhi and what it means to them to be a part of the sorority!

coming back from covid i felt almost lost because i had made so many new friends, but i didnt know who i was myself, so i was constantly overwhelmed with who i was showing to others. i joined aKDPhi because i wanted to become confident in myself and proud of who i am, to be able to be the best version of myself and learn to constantly grow no matter the situation.

aKDPhi has given me a strong support system as an individual and the opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone. While connecting with sisters, I felt inspired and wanted to surround myself with these empowering, strong, and highly motivated women. aKDPhi has encouraged me to come out of my shell and open up to other individuals on a much more personal level. I’ll always be thankful and blessed to have found my home away from home and the best sisterhood!

Being able to go through life and find experiences that would benefit me and leave me with memories of strength and fun, led me to rushing for aKDPhi. Being a part of this organization has also strengthened and germinated qualities within myself that I have expressed in my life outside of the sorority.

I struggled meeting people and attending events in my first-year at USF. A friend told me to come out to events, but I was afraid greek life would be too out of my comfort zone. In my second-year, another friend invited me out to an event aKDPhi hosted. I agreed to push myself out there and I ended up meeting so many sisters I found common interests with. The way they’ve exemplified the pillars were a bonus for me, and I do love the strong connections aKDPhi continues to have in the real world and with our Alums.

I joined aKDPhi because I wanted a sisterhood and friends that I knew I could always count on. I grew up an only child so i never felt like I had that bond with anyone and  I didn’t have the best support system either. Coming to recruitment events, sisters were friendly and made me feel welcome. It felt like a second home and a judgement free place where I could be myself :)

Before aKDPhi, I knew I wanted to be involved with a group of close-knit, like-minded people that would push me to be my best while also building friendships that would last a lifetime. aKDPhi has given me all of that and more. My line, my big, my mom and my sisters have given me so much support and love. They have all helped me become a better version of myself. They continue to push me and encourage me to grow. I’ve been given a second family — a home away from home and I just genuinely felt like aKDPhi was the one for me. LnF baybeee <3

I have always been really shy growing up and I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone to interact with others and be more confident in myself. After joining aKDPhi, I have met so many confident and motivated people and have made such strong connections! This sisterhood has had such a positive impact on me personally as well as professionally.

#157 Vivian "LUMina" Xu

 I decided to join aKDPhi because I wanted a support system that I can fall back on. Therefore, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and attended aKDPhi’s recruitment events. I met so many sisters that are so sweet, caring, and incredible, and I know I want to form strong bonds with them that will last for a lifetime. Moreover, I truly believe that I will be able to grow and become a better version of myself by surrounding myself with these strong and confident women

aKDPhi has given me so many opportunities for many things in my life that I am thankful for. Not only have I been given many opportunities, but I have been able to grow in all aspects of my life. This sisterhood has truly provided me with unimaginable and endless love and support. 

#𝟏49 Kathy "𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐑ê𝐀𝐥" Le

Since I’ve moved away from home, it’s been really hard to make new friends. To counter this, I pushed myself out of my comfort zone by participating in various organizations. With that, aKDPhi has become my home away from home. It’s given me a chance to build bonds with women of all different backgrounds and personally grow through the endless love and support given by sisters. I couldn’t ask for a better family. I love you all sm! 

#153 Charmaine "Asteriaa" Bondoc

Growing up I never felt like I belonged to a certain group of people. I always jumped from different friend groups but never connected to just one. Meeting sisters and connecting to them has truly made me realize that i can belong in something. Being able to surround myself with empowering, confident women, has allowed me to grow in my journey to self love. The support that everyone has for each other is so abundant and heart warming. I knew the moment I walked into the door this was home!

#151 Shelley "Toblerone" Nguyen

aKDPhi has given me a sense of security where I can constantly turn to not only Active House but Alums for support. I feel like I am in a constant cycle of being around women who uplift and empower everyone around them. 

#136 Holly "aRtemis" Chau

I have so many but my most recent one would be attending Alpha Epsilon’s new member presentation. It was so nice finally having a reveal in person, seeing all the sisters not only from our chapter but from the southeast region come to support was amazing. And of course, watching our neos and my little<3 work so hard throughout their journey made me so proud.

#155 Camille "oRēnda" Somchith

I wanted to branch outside of my comfort zone and try something completely new to me. I wanted to build connections with like-minded, strong, confident and driven women that would motivate me to be my best self. At first, I was intimidated by greek life, but I felt so welcomed at recruitment events. It felt like the perfect fit for me! I have made so many everlasting bonds that I would never trade for anything in the world⁣.
