At the end of every school year, my sorority comes together to celebrate all of our hard work with our annual White Rose Formal. It is such a fun tradition that I am so happy to have Read More
Without further a do, MEET MY LITTLE! She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and I could not be more happy for the opportunity to grow with her during her time in Gamma Kappa. If you recently joined a sorority and are already convinced that you love it, just wait until you get to spoil your little. It was a week of excitement filled with a special kinda of love. Our big little theme was Disney, so naturally I went with The Princess Diaries. I am Mia Thermopolis before the makover and my little is Mia after!
Life has been so busy lately. It seems as if we are always planning for something and never enjoy what we have at the moment. This weekend was filled with love, my closest friends, and giving back — three of my favorite things. Read More
One of the best life lessons I was ever taught was, “Whenever you are having a bad day, service will make it better.” Sounds kind of silly to go out your own way for others while you’re trying to pick up the pieces, right? But, it is true. Once you cause the smile on someone else’s face your whole week will be made. There are others out there in out community that may be suffering and through worse than I will ever experience. I believe that we all have a purpose to serve those around us. The bible tells us, “love thy neighbor as yourself.”

Growing up in Lafayette, I am thankful to be surrounded by people who go out their way for others. But our “neighbors” are not only the people down the street from us. They are the elderly, homeless, disabled, youth, needy, and poor. Lafayette taught me to love these people and put myself second. I was thankful enough to attend a Catholic school where I had many service opportunities. Now, I attend a university where service opportunities appear all the time within the organizations and a sorority with a local and national philanthropy. Service can come from donating, volunteering at the local homeless shelters, or any little action that will cause a smile on someone’s face. Now go out and be a light in the world 🙂
