β€œI think a major difference after graduation is that you don’t have the little interactions with sisters- studying together, random coffee dates, walking to classes together, etc. I became involved with the CAA to continue growing relationships, extend the sisterhood more, and support active house! I miss working with sisters on events, projects, and anything they are passionate about.”

β€œBeing a sister and chapter leader in akdphi during my undergrad career shaped me into the womxn I am today. I love being a part of CAA because I want to help give back to my littles, kids, fam, sisters, and rising leaders in the chapter! Since starting a CAA was one of our biggest aspirations, it felt time to finally establish it with a group of sisters who always inspired me during my active career.”

β€œSince I’ve crossed, we’ve always wanted to form a CAA and so naturally it’s something I really wanted to make happen after graduating; to continue to connect our sxsters. I’ve always been passionate about this organization and overall have had a very positive undergraduate experience that I want to help make possible for younger sisters as well. I know college can be a very difficult and challenging time and hope to be able to alleviate some of that stress for undergraduate sxsters through providing guidance and support.”

β€œMy favorite memory is always the same, which is road-tripping to UNC with the best kids and my line sister, Heather. I think the reason it holds such a special place in my heart is because we originally went because I was going through a really tough time and needed some cheering up. When we arrived, we were met by our pbros and UNC sisters with open arms. They spent the entire weekend with us and took us to 13+ food/drink places, which as a foodie was extra fun for me, all making this a very special and heartwarming memory.”

β€œBeing able to work alongside passionate, hard working sisters is a feeling I miss from my active years. Being involved with the CAA is just another wonderful opportunity to work alongside them again and reconnect with sisters to continue growing those relationships.
