When you think of the word sorority, what is the first thing that comes up in your mind? Perhaps it would be: “Fake, overthetop, obnoxious, iusemydaddiesmoneyandflyfirstclass types of girls that dress in the exact same t-shirt posing and smiling when they probably all hate each other anyways. Well, let me begin to tell you a few things I wish I knew about sorority before joining one. And don’t get me wrong, I had a really great time in a sorority so I would never do anything to take my times I had there back.
My name is Doris, I am born and raised in Hong Kong but I have and still am studying in the United Kingdom for about 7 years now; *still haven’t picked up the posh benedict bumberbatch posh accent oh God. I did a semester exchange at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the US, some town that’s probably more boring than any other town I have been to in the world, but hey, Emily Dickinson lived there, and if you do not know who she is, you just got to check it out. I went to the US in January and left the US on the 19th of May, and although you might sit there are think to yourself, why on earth would you want to spend a month in a lousy sorority when all you can afford to do is to travel around and to enjoy life? Well, i’ve always seen cliche American High School Movies and I was just incredibly intrigued by the American Culture and what it’s really like to be studying in the supposed best country in the world, so I decided to give sorority a go.
I rushed for two sororities, the first sorority is called Delta Xi Phi, which is my current sorority, it’s different and interesting because it is a multi-cultural sorority and I am surrounded by intelligent, interesting, out-spoken girls who, like me, want to make a difference to the world we live in. Our motto is : What’s possible has been done, and what’s impossible must be done. I like how everyone in my sorority was incredibly outspoken and unique because we were all woman of color.
