Why did I chose Sigma Kappa? Well, It was my second house that I went to. And I fell in love. The first house, I was bumbling around with my words and felt awkward. But I walked into the Sig Kap house and I felt like I was home. I loved the girls (they were all named Kelsey too) that I talked to and I could tell that my smile was real, not fake. It was always in my top 3. On Preff Day, I had Sigma Kappa and two other sororities that were not in my top. I decided to go to all 3 parties to see if I was just wrong. Well, Sigma Kappa was the first that day. What I felt with these ladies was not something I had ever felt. I cried. Like a little baby. Kelsey (one of my original girls) had tissues for me because she said that she always cries during it too. After that I went to the other two parties but I didn’t feel like I should be one of them. So I put Sigma Kappa as my top choice. Waiting for my bid was the hardest thing I had ever done. But when I opened up the envelop and saw that I had Sigma Kappa I almost cried. And it was even better when I was on that stage and unzipped my hoodie to show the girls that I had chosen them too, just like they chose me. It was an amazing feeling to jump off the stage into my sisters arms. I didn’t see Kelsey at first but she made sure to find me and give me a big hug and handed me my gifts. It was not something that I will ever forget.
Now onto why did I stay? Because I almost left. There was some things that went on that made me question why I joined a sorority in the first place. But what kept me was the actives that I was starting to get close to. I just made sure to hang out with them and it helped me to realize that this was where I was meant to be. I loved the fact that even though someone might be a few years older or younger than I am that I could relate so easily to them. And that is what kept me. Along with all of the amazing ladies that I meet on Tumblr that are my Sigma Kappa. It feels amazing to be involved with all of these amazing ladies. I can not wait to see what the future holds for me.
So you asked me why I chose my sorority? It is simple. They made it easy by loving me just as much as I loved them. but what does it mean to me? It means everything. I have meet my best friends, bridesmaids, and most of all sisters in these woman. I have become a better person from having to uphold the values and traditions of Sigma Kappa. I have grown more than I ever thought was possible in ways I never knew I needed to grow. I am more outgoing. I always have a smile on my face. I found the best support system any woman could have, both in my chapter and in the sorority as a whole. The women I have talked to from other Sig Kap chapters love me for me and always support me even though I have never personally meet them and I know I am the same way with them.
So when you asked what it means to me, I could reply with one word: Everything.
