“I became a member of Theta Nu Xi relatively late in life, but it was an important step for me. I always wanted a sisterhood of women who would appreciate all of me, a sisterhood that would embrace women from all walks of life, all cultures, and with the unifying qualities of respect, appreciation, and support for all. I am still plumbing the depths of all this sisterhood means, and excited that even though I have ‘earned my wings,’ I am still expected and encouraged to grow as a woman, as a person, and as a sister. Becoming a sister reminded me that I can do anything my heart is set on, and the rewards will be wonderful. With that said, it also reminds me how lucky I am to be a part of this incredibly talented organization, to have these women around me, and to pay that forward within Theta Nu Xi and in society at large.”
