People think that Greek life is superficial, or only about partying but it’s not. It’s business meetings and planning fundraisers, and collaborating with other clubs. The whole point of it is philanthropy and helping others.

I had never led something before. This was the first time that people were looking at me, and I had to be in charge. That will help in the classroom, and it was the first step out of my comfort zone.
