Upon arrival to the Alpha Phi chapter house at Butler University where 50 of us Alpha Phis were going to be staying for the leadership conference ELI (Emerging Leader’s Institute), I was extremely nervous and hesitant to meet sisters from around the continent yet overly excited at the same time. Within five short days, we became incredibly close and learned so much from each other.
Aside from the leadership part of my experience, I had the opportunity to be connected with Alpha Phi sisters that I would not have met otherwise. It was interesting and inspiring to talk with each of them with a sisterly connection and ask about their chapters and universities. We got so close by the end of the week which made our goodbyes very difficult.
Attending this leadership conference was one of the best decisions of my life. We learned from alumnae from the Executive Office on how to improve our chapters and flourish as young women.
If you have the opportunity to attend a leadership conference or if your sorority offers any type of workshop, APPLY. You will benefit so much from applying yourself and striving to be your best.
At the end of the week I left as a stronger, more confident, and inspired Alpha Phi.
