I was in a difficult time in my life and I told myself I was not fit for Greek life and that all changed. I chose Gamma because when I met the women I knew I was home, I just felt comfortable, like that feeling you get as if you’ve known someone your entire life. I fell in love with what it stood for, what they believed in and what they had to offer. I wanted to expand my leadership skills and surround myself with a support system that had similar goals. But I gained something greater, a lifetime sisterhood that will be there for me regardless and that to me is more valuable than anything else. I chose to go greek by choice, but Gamma por fortuna."
