SERVICE....FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW




"We are known for our service, what the HELL do you do?"

I wear the proud colors of Maroon & white on my black sorority jacket, but Im not a Delta. Who am I?

I am a proud member of Gamma Sigma Sigma, National Service Sorority Inc. Founded in 1952 on prominent University campuses such as Boston University, New York University, Brooklyn College, and Drexel Institute of Technology...just to name a few. This sorority is multi-cultural and founded on the principles of service, friendship, and equality. We gather in the spirit of helping others. This month we will be celebrating our Founder's Day!

A lot of my peers are not familiar with this organization, although they are found on several of our college campuses. I pledged and crossed at Spelman College,a chapter of which some of its founding members came from Clark-Atlanta University. There are also active chapters at some of our HBCU's and local universities such as Howard University, Florida A&M, University of Tennessee, Tennessee State University, Middle Tennessee State University, Austin Peay, and Georgia State, just to name a few. Although, I am fond of my pan-hellenic sorority and fraternities, some of whom members, are also members of Gamma Sigma Sigma, National Service Sorority Inc. (My own aunt is actually a member of both Gamma Sigma Sigma.. & Delta Sigma Theta), I wanted to shed light onto other options. We are deeply rooted in the passion of service,(as well as the nature of the pan-hell fraternities). This foundation is nurtured throughout your college matriculation and therefore carried over into your post graduate life.

My primary reason for my blogs is to bring social awareness into our African American communities. So many negative things are going on in the world, so very often you will read stories of a positive nature. No doubt there will be negativity and controversy, just to train our minds for critical thinking.

With that said, I want to know what you are doing as a young African American to bring social awareness to your neighborhood. What positive things are you doing with the youth in your community. What kind of role model are you. A lot of us are "about that money", that's cool and all, but bring someone up with you! It will make our communities, our world A BETTER PLACE!

PLEASE SHARE YOUR IDEAS FOR COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT AND YOUR STORIES ON HOW YOU THINK YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE ELSE'S LIFE. (I GOT A MENTOR STORY I MAY SHARE ON A RAINY DAY...iono its kinda gross lol)
