With the CEO and COO of Delta Omicron/University of Alabama in a plane flight to see the campus and city of Tuscaloosa!
One thing I love about my job as an Educational Leadership Consultant for Theta is how different and exciting each day is for me! Over the past year, I have learned to appreciate the new adventures each sunrise brings and I have gained a new outlook on life. I know my perspective is constantly changing as I look at my diverse situations:

-This job is teaching me to give up control of unforeseen circumstances. The first time I missed a flight, had my luggage lost, and forgot my lines when facilitating a workshop, it seemed like the world was crashing down. Now, I have learned to try to accept these things with a smile, quick laugh and a new approach to aim to live life in the present and have faith that it will all work out in due time.

-This year my definition of "home" started to change as I have fallen in love with the city of Nashville, Tennessee where I am based for the year with the Eta Phi/Belmont University chapter. Although, I am always excited when I have a chance to travel to Virginia and see my family in a house where I lived 23 years of my life, I am now blessed to have found my own place to call home.

-Through my time as an ELC, my perspective of friendship has changed. I used to believe my friends were just my peers, those who were in my same circle and shared similar interests. Thankfully, my eyes have been opened and I realize I can share friendships with college-aged women, my dear co-workers and hundreds of women that age from 25-95 because of our bond of Kappa Alpha Theta.

-Most recently, I had the opportunity to have a very unique perspective in the city of Tuscaloosa. The executive officers surprised me with a late night private plane flight to get a bird's eye view of campus. Although I travel in planes weekly, that was an exciting adventure I'll always remember!

Has Theta positively changed your perspective recently?
