As an African-American woman, I have always known I am more likely to develop heart disease.
Knowing that I and all of the incredible women in my family are even more at risk has pushed me to give all that I can to this Foundation that is changing women's lives every day. Throughout the time I have been a sister of Alpha Phi, I have learned so much from the incredible women of this organization. They have shown me that Alpha Phi's high ideals really can lift me up beyond myself, and they encourage me to think of others' needs and struggles before my own. I hope to see the effects of this amazing philanthropy even more as a Leadership Council Member!
