Serving on Alpha Chi Omega’s executive board for the entire 2017 year as the Vice President of Philanthropy has not only challenged me in many ways, but allowed me to establish myself as a leader for the people and for change. I was very thankful for all my experiences working with our philanthropy, Domestic Violence Awareness, and can confidently say that I have left my mark on AXO with the service and commitment I did during my time on e-board.
My committee and I executed another successful fall semester spaghetti dinner raising money for the local Women’s Aid Shelter and also implemented many new ideas as well as spread more awareness on campus. We were also able to be a part of the entire Greek community raising $100,000 for Women’s Aid Services and Special Day Camps this past Greek Week.
With my term ending in December, I have now stepped back in AXO, however, I still hold two committee positions and used my leadership capstone project to re-implement our My Journey program. Essentially, I spent this past semester working to bring back a program that focuses on mental, emotional, and physical health that we lost this past year. I successfully brought it back and it will now be up and running this fall semester.
Since I first joined Alpha Chi Omega three year ago I have always had a leadership role and I am very grateful that when I go alum from the chapter in December I will be finishing up my two committee positions. This organization has supported me and given me so many opportunities to flourish, to create change, to grow, and to be a leader that cares.
