Why did you become a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated?
I was mentored and inspired by several members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority growing up in Danville, IL. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated is the first African-American sorority; it was founded in 1908 when African-Americans and especially women had to fight for their rights and for their voices to be heard. I have also been motivated and empowered by African-American history; I wanted to be a part of an organization whose philanthropic founders paved the way for African-American women to excel academically, professionally, and morally. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated: to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, and to be a service to all mankind, parallels my personal and professional missions in life. I love being a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated!
