I’ve heard a lot of people say that they found their sisters after rushing a sorority at Penn. They’ll say that first semester was a little tough—they were away from family and they felt isolated, like no one understood them. Then they joined a sorority and their worlds turned upside down. They realized they haven’t just made ordinary bonds with these girls, but instead they’ve joined a sisterhood.
I can definitely relate… to the extreme. Before I joined Sigma Iota Sigma (SIS), I felt alone—like part of me was missing. I was listening to sophomores go on and on about finding a family in the girls they met through pledging SIS, but little did I think I’d actually find mine.
But I did.
I didn’t realize Hallie and Annie were my sisters until I looked at them for the first time and they literally looked exactly like me. We also have the same birthday (October 11, holler) and the same last name, so I guess you could say we just sort of put the pieces together.
Finding my sisters was the best thing that ever happened to me. Our lineage is literally just the three of us and our divorced parents. We know some girls with two bigs who don’t get along, but they don’t get it like we do! Lol.
Mom’s weekend is next weekend and I’m super excited. My mom is coming but I guess Hallie and Annie are also bringing some woman named Meredith Blake. Should be interesting.
I know Greek life gets a bad rep, but it literally brought me to my SISters. Who knows, it could change your life too!
