Like many people, I always looked at sororities as a group of girls who just party together and pay to do it. And while there is a fairshare of partying and bonding, it’s so much more than just parties.
I spent my high school years with all girls which I didn’t realize until much later, played a huge factor in my decision to rush because those bonds are ones I carry to this day.
When I began to consider rushing, I knew I would be picky and wouldn’t want to join just any sorority. It would have to be THE one.
My sophomore year I found this with Alpha Chi Omega. And the two and a half collegiate years I spent as a Kappa Omicron was more than just fun. It was empowering to be surrounded by many different women, all of which had a different story to share.
My 19-year-old self was changed forever by this. I am changed forever by this. I truly, and so deeply, feel that this experience has led me to where I am in my life right now.
I made amazing friends, who I’m still close with today, and also my experiences with these strong women beside me sparked something in me. I became more confident and sure of my decisions. As time went on the vision I had for my business and entrepreneurial journey became clear.
I wanted to support women and empower them, hopefully giving them the amazing feeling I got from AXO. The product I offer at Lifestyle Details is 100% sourced from fellow female-owned businesses. I love being able to say that.
In 2019, women are more than ever stepping into their power and I want to do everything I can to keep that momentum going, to be a part of the change. You may be asking, okay how does all these relate to sorority life? What’s my point? My suggestion would be, don’t judge a book by its cover. You may think you know what goes on as I did. Yet it was so much more of an experience than I ever expected and helped me find my goals. So who knows, join a sorority, it could change your life in more ways than you can even imagine. LITB.
