Family is my most important value, the power of togetherness and feeling of steadfast love and support is something I seek in all aspects of life. Your family is yours to keep, no one can take that from you. I have made chi omega my family, I value it for the treasures it’s given me and for the hardships we’ve faced. Along with that, I value loyalty. The ability to align yourself with someone or something so entirely that you’re there for them when they need it most and when they just need it period. These two values are then rooted in the most important, which is respect. You give it, you earn it, you lose it, and you regain it. Respect is the ultimate thing to strive to receive and strive to give to others. Sorority life has given me a network of women who have become my family, to which I am loyal, and that which I will respect and cherish for the rest of my life.
