I'm not quite sure if I've mentioned my beloved Delta Zeta Sorority... But in case you were unaware, I joined the sisterhood in early 2006 and wear pink and green ever since proudly ;) When I first rushed I was my typical self - quiet, shy and super quiet. The look of bewilderment on my parent's faces when I mentioned joining a sorority was priceless. I'm sure they internally wondered why in the world my little quiet self would do such a thing. And really, I'm not exactly sure what pointed me in that direction. I just decided to and it has certainly been a great decision.
I remember having Economics in a large auditorium with lots of students. I felt so small and rather alone. First week of classes I came to realize that Economics would be one of those classes where I attended, listened to learn and nothing else. I wasn't interested in making friends, it made me nervous. I also remember meeting a very friendly, beautiful and intelligent young lady. She quickly made sure to wave hello to me as we walked in to class and struck up conversation. This young lady, my friend, was my soon to be sorority sister Mitzi. I was delighted to have a friend in class and moreso because she was so genuine and spunky. Mitzi, I realized, was very much like me... she carried that little agenda of hers packed to the max. She was studious but fun. And most importantly, she liked to make a difference in everything she participated in. I found that cool mostly because it reminded me of the attitude I take to things and because I was glad other people actually used their agendas ;)
Two years later I graduated from college and still carry the bonds of sisterhood with me. Mitzi contacted me a few months ago and we soon scheduled her senior portrait session. I was delighted to photograph her because she's fun and I knew I could capture her collegiate essence at its best. Mitzi I am glad to call you my sister and would like you to know I absolutely loved when you were our Philanthropy chair... wink ;) Congratulations on your graduation and all of your accomplishments. I do not know what the future stores for you but I do know God has many blessings heading your way. Congratulations! Mitzi is the epitome of what I would call a wholesome young lady. To me, she is the poster girl for our sorority... and here are some pictures to prove it ;)
Happy Tuesday ;)
