Sociology & Psychology 

Brooklyn, NY 

Fun Fact: I am obsessed with anything scary! Especially horror movies/shows. 

What is your favorite part about being in the Panhellenic Community?: Being a part of the Panhellenic Community has taught me more about giving than anything else. With that being said, being involved in it is something that I am beyond thankful for. Within it, one is constantly giving back to the outside community through service, giving back to other Greek organizations through philanthropy events, and, of course, giving back to one’s own organization when it comes to building relationships within one’s own chapter and creating sisterly bonds with one another throughout the years. Individuals within the Panhellenic Community are always meeting new people and fostering relationships and friendships with so many others through philanthropy events, social events, and sisterhood events. I certainly cherish this opportunity of meeting new people and showing this “panhel love” to other members of the Panhellenic Community by having opportunities to support each other. Joining the Panhellenic Community has been one of the greatest decisions I have ever made here at Rutgers, and I hope that as a Pi Chi I can influence potential new members to, hopefully, say the same thing in the near future as well!
