Oh to be a Delta girl! Oh to be a part of the largest Greek letter sorority for Black women.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 13, 1913 at Howard University. Only two months later, the 22 founders participated in the Women’s Suffrage March in Washington, DC to stand for social justice as their first public act.
My sorority has truly been a game changer in my life in showing me how I can impact my local community as well as the world. By providing a blueprint for promoting academic excellence and providing assistance to those in need, DST has helped me to tell my story of being a Black woman in STEM and to be of service to those in my community.
Without this sisterhood and the wonderful women I have met along the way that are in sororities and in STEM, I’m not sure Dr. Grayson would be here today.
So, today, we celebrate this 108th year of fortitude rooted in sisterhood, scholarship, service, and social action. Today, I celebrate my “In Search of Sisterhood”, where I found my sisters, my line sisters, my big sisters, my little sister, my special sisters, my Epsilon Theta chapter members, and even my best friend @tarielles (a PhD in Materials Science and Engineering).
Happy Founders’ Day Sorors! OO-OOP!
