Favorite Quote: "Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life."

Reason for joining LTA: Being an out-of-state student, I was having difficulty adjusting to UVA. When I became part of the interest group I felt as though I belonged. I was looking for a support group and a family away from home and that is exactly what I found in LTA.

Favorite Quote: "There is a ripple effect in all that we do; what you do touches me, what I do touches you."


Reason for joining LTA:  I've always wanted to feel connected to the Latino community, but since I am mixed and did not grow up speaking Spanish, it has in the past been a struggle. Becoming more in touch with this community is one of the first things that got me interested in LTA, but as I learned more about the organization I discovered so many more reasons to make myself a part of it. The underlying principles and goals of the sisterhood are beautiful and I was very impressed with the sisters and the way they speak so highly of the organization.

Favorite Quote: "Reaching goals isn't for pessimistic people" -France Anne Córdova 

Reason for joining LTA:  As a first year, I really needed a support group that would not only be there for me but would also help me grow. As I met more and more sisters, I found out that LTA truly embodied the principles of Unity, Love, and Respect. These were the principles that helped shape the amazing, successful, and inspirational universal women of Lambda Theta Alpha. Ultimately, I knew that LTA was the perfect place for me.
