What I'm Thankful For - Lauren Hunstad

Being in a sorority has given me so much to be thankful for. My sisters are incredibly amazing women and they inspire me every day. I would be lost without their friendships and support. Not only have my friendships with girls I already knew been strengthened, but my new Theta friendships have grown to be equally strong, sometimes stronger. Each and every sister brings something unique and special to our organization and I feel truly blessed to be a part of it as well.

I am thankful for all of the opportunities that Theta has given me. I never realized my full leadership potential until I joined Theta and saw other girls looking up to me and depending on me. I feel like Theta has given me the chance to do something bigger than myself. Our service and philanthropy work touches the lives of countless individuals on our campus and in our community. This impact is real and it makes me so proud.

Finally, I am thankful for my Theta little sister. Having a little sister to support and mentor has been an amazing experience and I have loved being there for her. The best part however, is how she has supported and mentored me too! I never even anticipated how strong our relationship would become. Although it began with popping a silly balloon, my relationship with my little has evolved into one of my most meaningful college relationships. She inspires me to be the best version of myself. She encourages me to make the tough, but important, decisions. She motivates me to stay positive and to keep a smile on my face, especially when she always has one on hers. Even when I am faltering or want to take the easy route, she is there to remind me that I can do better and I deserve to do better for myself.

My little has a smile that can light up a room and she always brightens my day. I would be absolutely lost without her. I have no I idea how I survived before I met her. And I will be eternally thankful that she, and all the women of Kappa Alpha Theta, are a part of my life.
