Kappa Kappa Gamma

President's Message

As I sit down to write this letter, I am filled with gratitude and pride to serve as the President of our chapter at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Kappa Kappa Gamma has been a defining experience in my life, and I am thrilled to lead this incredible group of women who have become like family to me.

As a student who started college remotely, I know firsthand how difficult it can be to navigate the challenges of college life without the support of a close-knit group of friends. However, from the very beginning of my time in Kappa, I was warmly welcomed into a sisterhood that has helped me grow and thrive as a person. Through this incredible organization, I have made lifelong friends who have become my family away from home.The Epsilon Psi chapter continues to amaze me in how we support one another in personal growth, leadership development, and expanding knowledge. 

As we look ahead to the future, I am excited to see what we can accomplish as a chapter. We have so many talented and dedicated members, and a shared commitment to making a positive impact on our campus and in our community. I know that joining a sorority can be an intimidating experience, especially given the history of Greek organizations in inequitable disenfranchisement. As President, my goal is to ensure that we are fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment that empowers each member to reach their full potential. I am committed to leading with integrity and ensuring that every member feels valued and supported. Bearing these goals in mind, I am confident that we will continue to create meaningful experiences that will shape our lives long after our time at UCSB has ended.

Thank you for entrusting me with this role. I am honored to be a part of such an incredible organization and am excited for what the future holds for Kappa Kappa Gamma at UCSB.
