In Today’s society the black woman is looked at as objects with bad attitudes. For example, shows like Love&Hip Hop, Basketball Wives, and Bad girls Club do not help the image of the black female any better. But I believe Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated purpose is to do the opposite of that. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated is to provide the best image of a Black lady. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated is to provide sisterhood, service, and high scholastics. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated members are supposed to be able to serve as role models to young girls so that they can see that black woman do not have to act like the ones on television. …show more content…
Throughout these organizations I am either serving as a mentor or using my media skills. For example, with Chapel Assistants I have the opportunity to help prepare for each chapel service but I also serve in the Media Ministry which is responsible for making CD’s for each service, mailing CDs to attendees, and being sure the speaker gets a copy of their sermon. I love the job because I truly get to build relationships with those that attend chapel. Within the Spotlight Network I am currently a reporter in which I report events that are going on campus. This year the Spotlight Network will have its own shows and I will serve as a reporter of the shows. With Howard Players I get work on my acting skills by attending workshops. Alternative Spring Break, was my chance to be able to spend an entire week Mentoring students at Normandy High School which is located in Ferguson Missouri. To this day I continue to mentor those students I met through email. In the Freshman Leadership Academy my freshman year all year I was taught to be a leader and even had the opportunity to travel to China and provide service. Because I am a sophomore I get to use the things I learn to help mentor a current freshman. Lastly, Matriculate is a recent organization that is affiliated with Howard’s campus in which through google hangout I mentor students in low income high school.
I am a firm believer of giving back to my community and being sure to stay involved as much as possible. If it wasn’t for other taking time to help mold me I wouldn’t be the person I am today. I pray that through this letter I am able to clearly express my love for this organization.
