Why AOII: I chose AOII because I saw a piece of me in every sister I met!
Being a sister: When I became a sister, I made an oath to myself that I would give this sisterhood my all because the sisterhood has given me so much. Being a sister is much more than just wearing letters, it's constantly exceeding the expectations in order to help the chapter strive.
Favorite Memory: Going to Puerto Rico for Spring break with 13 of my sisters!
How AOII has helped me: It's allowed me to grow more confident in myself and my own abilities.

Why AOII: I chose AOII because not only were they genuine and goofy people, but they were also extremely hard-working and driven which really showed during recruitment.

Favorite Memory: whole! My favorite memory in AOII so far would be taking my amazing little. It's so much fun making silly clues, and also helping her adjust into the chapter. It's a super rewarding feeling!
