Fall 2005 i entered Clark Atlanta University, with intentions to take over the world! I already had in my mind that i was going to leave a solid imprint at my institution through the impact i made on others. When i was finally exposed to fraternities and sororities, i was impressed. The women who represented these organizations were educated,talented,and beautiful. But it was the women of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,Inc. who captured my attention. The year I pledged was the most memorable experience of my life. But the difference between myself and a lot of people who became greek around me was that i DID NOT CHANGE. Sometimes, people get this misconception that you have to automatically fit a stereotypical mold when you become greek. Although you should be a standing representation of the brother/sisterhood you join, YOU CAN STILL BE YOURSELF. The foundation of our organizations weren't created on the bases of "New Arrogance", they were created for the betterment of black people. For those aspiring to become a member of the divine 9, greek shouldn't MAKE you,it should only compliment the greatness you already possess. REAL PEOPLE aren't defined by how many times they can DOUBLE-CLAP or do a founders step, they're defined by the individual they were before the added incentives. In the end,whether greek or not, the most important letters we should be concerned with are D.E.G.R.E.E! Be blessed and remember that if you allow an organization to make you, be prepared for it to break you!
