Reason for joining LTA: Lambda Theta Alpha offered me the opportunity to make a difference in the community alongside women of all walks of life.

Reason why I joined LTA: There are many reasons why I wanted to become a Lovely Lambda Lady. One of the reasons was the fact that I never had any sisters and I wanted to be surrounded by women from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds that were hungry to succeed, wanted to make a difference in the world, and embraced unity, love and respect. I definitely found this at Gamma Alpha. I feel truly blessed that I will forever have a sisterly bond with these amazing group of women and we will continue to pass on the torch of unity, love and respect to our future sisters.  Every single sister at Gamma Alpha brings a special and unique ingredient to our chapter which is what truly makes our sisterhood priceless.
