It chose me, and I chose it.

Founding Sister #4

 

Line Initial: "C"

 

Birthplace: Bangladesh

Ethnicity: Bengali

 

Undergraduate Concentration:

Health Administration with Spanish Minor

May 2014

 

Reason for Joining LTA:

Lambda Theta Alpha is unique in its establishment as a TRUE sisterhood and way of life rather than a mere organization or set of letters. LTA is the epitome of my own values, goals, and passions and it is incredible knowing that I have a unified support system of thousands of sisters who are diverse in so many ways but have managed to maintain these same exact values for years without having to change any of our true selves. Lambda Theta Alpha does not alter us but rather serves as an extension of us and brings out the Lambda Ladies that already existed inside of us. The hermandad is perfect, and nothing less.

The organization stands for everything that I am passionate about and believe. From community service and academic achievement, the sisterhood goes above and beyond to always be there for you no matter the circumstances. I will be forever blessed and grateful for belonging to such an amazing sisterhood I could have never found anywhere else.

I love the diversity that we bring to the university campus by catering to the larger population of students along with other organizations. LTA was the only way for me and my sisters!!
