TLAM by Brittany Salaam

I always thought I would be a member of a historically African-American sorority. I had my heart set on one thing all my life and had to intentions of changing my mind… But there was something about Kappa Alpha Theta. My mom and sister worried if I would really fit in and if I would be received in a loving manner and I love them for that. But I am happy, blessed, and proud to be able to say that I am a sister of Kappa Alpha Theta and truly feel like one. Theta for me is belonging. It means a chance to thrive in a group for a common purpose. It means that I have the opportunity to really get to know a fine group of women and share my diversity and welcome the diversity of others. It is a place where I am not a minority but I am an important part of an awesome majority…a whole. I love Kappa Alpha Theta already for everything it is and everything that it already means to me and I can only hope, and I sincerely have faith, that my love strengthens…because after all, faith hope and love are all important, but the greatest of these is love.
