Reason for joining LTA: Ummm...is that even a question? LTA is the only way! I joined LTA because I fell in love with everything it stood for. I found things I didn't know I was looking for. Not only do they strive for academic excellence, they also work hard to give back to the community. On top of LTA strives to empower the Universal women. I saw the sisters and saw who I wanted to be. A group full of strong young women who embrace diversity and welcomed me so openly!

Favorite Quote: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others"

Reason for joining LTA: When I came to UVA it was nothing like I expected. I came from a very diverse background and I couldn't find that here. LTA showed me there was a place for me on campus. I have no brothers or sisters and was looking for that sisterhood bond which again I found in LTA. The success of the women who have come before me and the love they have for the organization is a beautiful thing how could I not want to join?!

Reason for joining LTA: What I found attractive about LTA, were the sisters. When I had the opportunity to meet the sisters, I was very impressed with their demeanor and the way in which they expressed their love for LTA. I could tell their feelings were genuine and from then on wanted to learn more. As a result, I have created strong bonds with previous and new sisters and learned what this sorority has to offer. Joining LTA was definitely a learning experience and I am glad that I can be proud to represent this organization.
