Thank you, Alpha Chi For getting me through the toughest times. Whether my sisters knew what I was going through or not, they always did their best to keep a smile on my face and to keep me positive. Everyone fights battles that no one knows about, but Alpha Chi has always made me feel supported and loved. That’s one of my favorite parts of this sisterhood because no matter how much or how little they know you, they will surround you with love and happiness no matter what.
Thank you, Alpha Chi For giving me the confidence that I never thought I had. I used to be a very shy and quiet person with very little self-confidence. Now I feel comfortable giving presentations in front of very large groups, which used to scare the living daylights out of me. I feel comfortable going into professional environments because Alpha Chi has taught me to be a real, strong, woman and I am proud of that. I can talk to a complete stranger without feeling anxiety. Alpha Chi has taught me to be proud of who I am and has shown me how to strengthen my weaknesses head on.
Thank you, Alpha Chi For giving me my best friends. Not only have I found my people in college, the ones that I know will be in my life for the rest of my years, but I have also been a part of a community that is much larger than myself. A community that is always giving me opportunities to make connections and grow as a person. A community that is open and caring. Most importantly, it gave me a sisterhood and sisters, that even if you don’t know everyone, it feels like you do because the bond connects you.
Thank you, Alpha Chi For keeping me accountable and holding me to your standards. Everyone makes mistakes, and Alpha Chi will never frown upon that, they look at you and see your potential. Because of Alpha Chi, I am professional in person and on social media. I also have kept my grades up and improving every semester. I strive to get the grades I want. They keep me grounded and humble while reminding me what kind of woman I truly am. College is a tricky time, you lose yourself and find yourself, but Alpha Chi helps you find who you truly want to be and not for right now but for your future and the rest of your years.
Thank you, Alpha Chi For never giving up on me when I thought about giving up on you. Times get hard, and college is busy, sometimes things get too overwhelming. But during those hard times, Alpha Chi will always be there to help you. Alpha Chi will never give up on you; this is a sisterhood that will last you for the rest of your life, and sometimes we forget that. Alpha Chi will also always believe in you. When I ran for an exec position, I didn’t get the position that I had originally desired, but when I got a phone call telling me that I was nominated for a different position because my sisters believed in me. Their actions speak a lot louder than our mottos.
So thank you, Alpha Chi, for being my home away from home, for making me a better and stronger human, for loving me unconditionally, and for making my college experience the best it could be because I wouldn’t want it any other way. It is an honor to be a part of this wonderful sisterhood.
