ALPHA DELTA PI
We Live For Each Other
A Letter from our President
It is still incredibly surreal to be able to say I am the President of the Beta Epsilon Chapter of ADPi here at USC. This chapter is my heart, and I feel so honored to be able to lead such an amazing group of women and give back to an organization that has given so much to me.
Growing up, I moved frequently around the south and other states. I was born in Bermuda and have lived in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, and Colorado. Living in these places has shown me the passion I have for making connections with others and seeing different perspectives. I have loved getting the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and create strong friendships. The place where I have found my forever friends and future bridesmaids, however, has been here at the University of South Carolina.
Choosing to come to USC and rushing ADPi have truly been the two best decisions of my entire life! This chapter has given me the best support system, memorable experiences, and the ability to grow in my leadership skills. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without ADPi in it. I would not trade my experience for the world and I am so excited for those of you that might be interested in joining our sisterhood.
Last year I served as the Director of Primary Recruitment, which I absolutely loved. During my term, I realized how badly I wanted to continue to help lead such a great group of women. One of my favorite ADPi memories of all time was Bid Day this past August. Being able to see the new pledge class come together with everyone for the first time was a big full circle moment - I think I was smiling 24/7 the entire day!
My favorite quote will always be “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel,” by Maya Angelou. During my term as President, I hope to create a lasting positive impact on our chapter and protect the legacy it holds. I believe we continue to grow as a chapter year after year and are always striving to be the absolute best we can be. We hold ourselves to a high standard and our reputation is extremely important to us. We value being involved within the USC and entire Columbia community. Our philanthropy, Ronald McDonald House Charities, allows us to be able to give back and serve families who are in need.
Alpha Delta Pi lasts not only 4 years, but a lifetime. I am eternally grateful for my sisters, advisors, and all of the alumni that have made lastings impact on my life.
