What I Do in AGS: To the best of my abilities: ensure that my board is doing their best to ensure that our members attain the most out of their experience in being a part of the Alpha family. I'm the mother hen to mediating between any and all problems, so that any conflicts among my board and between the membership family is resolved neutrally and justly. I take so much pride in being the poster child for AGS, and I hope to instill that honorable red and gold passion and philanthropy in you too.

Sharing those same feelings of honor and privilege that my board feels, I will give my word to devoting this semester to the philosophy of true generosity that will benefit and inspire both parties- the club and our members. Our AGS experience to you will be one hopefully inspired by immense love and guided by humble knowledge.
