This weekโ€™s #SisterhoodSpotlight is on our lovable sister, #94 Sally *AlexandrรญA* Tran ๐Ÿฅฐโค๏ธ Sally is double majoring in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies and Psychology ๐Ÿง  So not only can she tell you when youโ€™re thinking right now but she can educate you on meaningful topics relevant to our current society๐Ÿคฉ When sheโ€™s not in her room chilling out๐Ÿ˜ด, Sally is either working as a Costanzo Teaching Fellow for Psychology 101 or hanging out with her adorable niece and nephew ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Sheโ€™s also an avid watcher of Netflix, specifically Chinese historical dramas and idol survival shows ๐Ÿ“ฝ๐ŸŽž. Fun fact: Sally loves knitting, as you can tell sheโ€™s the โ€œgrandmaโ€ friend ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿป Sally is one of our graduating seniors this year and we will miss her cuddly hugs and words of wisdom so much ๐Ÿ˜ข But we know that her future is bright wherever she goes โค๏ธ โ€” โ€œI had went to a couple rush events, but I didn't decide to actually rush until the Mocktails event. At the event, Carrie told me about how Andrea had an allergic reaction during class so she had to leave early. But then some guy in an orange jacket had the nerve to take Andrea's flashcards. So Carrie bolted after this boy and demanded Andrea's flashcards back. This left a strong impression on me of the strength of aKDPhi sisterhood. So I rushed and became a sister and got to see even more strong bonds between beautiful people!โ€ โ€” #dukeakdphi #WhyaKDPhi

It was such a great experience because I got to spend a lot of quality time with her in one of our favorite countries in the world.

At Duke, we kept each other accountable and motivated and would always "encourage" (force ๐Ÿ˜‚) each other to work out and keep healthy. We learned how to use machines and weights, different strength training techniques and routines, etc. And we feel totally comfortable around each other and there's no shame (there's even pride!) in ourselves and each other's progress and bodies. We're improving and growing together, and she's my favorite workout buddy because we understand each other's physical strength and capabilities." ๐Ÿฅฐโค๏ธ #dukeakdphi #whyakdphi #dukestudents #springintoakdphi

Iโ€™ve met my pseudo big Andrea who I miss dearly, and found my pseudo little Zangie whom I want to hang out with every single day. Two years after, I met my little Julie, and I canโ€™t say how grateful I am for being her big sister. My class, Sunny, Debra, Alessandra, Dorothy, and my mom Kathy are always there for me, and they have been the greatest support when I want to run for leadership in aKDPhi and actually became president this semester.

For this weekโ€™s #SisterhoodSpotlight , we have none other than our young and sweet dancing queen #103 Lauren *MaLdiva* Willis! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ Lauren is currently a sophomore majoring in biology and evolutionary anthropology with a minor in chemistry, and she crossed in spring 2018 as part of the Xi Xenia class. Outside of aKDPhi, Lauren is quite the busy bee ๐Ÿ and is involved in many organizations such as Duke Chinese Dance (of which sheโ€™s social chair!) ๐Ÿ‘˜๐ŸŽ Females Excelling More in Math, Engineering, and Science (FEMMES) ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ Duke Pre-Dental Society (of which she is PRESIDENT!) ๐Ÿ˜ and the Presbyterian Campus Ministry (PCM+) โ›ช๏ธ Lauren is also part of the Enabling Precision Health and Medicine Team of Bass Connections, and sheโ€™s currently designing a study where they will give free wearable watches to the entire freshman class so they can participate in their study! In what free time she may have, Lauren loves to dance ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿป sing ๐ŸŽค travel โœˆ๏ธ drink boba ๐Ÿ˜‹ explore new restaurants ๐Ÿฅ˜ and watch Netflix ๐ŸŽฌ๐ŸŽŸ We love you Lauren! ๐Ÿ’• Although you may not be able to handle any sort of spice ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿ”ฅ you are sweeter than any kind of candy ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฌ โ€” โ€œaKDPhi has provided me a group of people that I can rely on greatly. My sisters and of course my big are there for me during the tough and the good times. Even though my big has graduated and is across the country, she still continues to support me, check up on me and care about me from all those miles away. I canโ€™t wait to continue to get to know my fellow sisters and appreciate the opportunities that Duke provides together.โ€ โ€” #dukeakdphi #whyakdphi
#TBT to when we invited Wong Fu to Duke University for a screening of Yappie and a relevant and much-needed discussion about the AAPI identity and the model minority myth!

โ€œDear Julie, happy birthday! I always feel so lucky and proud to have you as my little. You have a cute and (derpy?) soul full of knowledge, fun, empathy, and potentials, and youโ€™re ALWAYS so happy and positive every day. Iโ€™m amazed by how broad your interests are, and how great you are balancing so many things together. I appreciate your observance and consoling words during my down time, and your support cheered me up a lot. Hope college is a fun place for you to try out possibilities (as youโ€™re doing now!), and I hope kdphi will be a place that you find strength and support throughout!โ€ (#83 Krystal *pleiONE* Zhai) โ€” Before the day ends, weโ€™d like to wish a happy birthday to our meme queen ๐Ÿ˜ค๐Ÿ‘‘โœจ #102 Julie *KasTTOr* Peng! We are so lucky to have such a sweet sister like you to call our own, and you never fail to make us laugh even when weโ€™re at our most stressed โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’• Youโ€™re a sparkling shining star, baby girl, and welcome to your fabulous twenties! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ’ซ #dukeakdphi #whyakdphi
Starting today, weโ€™ll be featuring a #SisterhoodSpotlight every week to not only showcase our individual sisters, but also to remind ourselves of why we love this sisterhood so much ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’Ž For our very first spotlight, we have #96 Angela *Maca*ryta* Zhou. Angela (or Zangie as we call her! ๐Ÿ’•) crossed in spring 2017 as part of the Nu Novas class, and sheโ€™s currently a junior majoring in environmental science with a finance minor. Sheโ€™ll even be interning at Barclays in NYC this summer โ€” we love us a boss lady! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ธ๐Ÿป Outside of aKDPhi, Zangie is on the exec boards for the Duke Association for Business Oriented Women, Duke Business Society, and Alexander Hamilton Society. Sheโ€™s also involved in Fusion Asian-interest SLG and Duke American Grand Strategy Program. Zangie will be studying abroad next semester in Copenhagen, and weโ€™re gonna miss her dearly! ๐Ÿ˜ญ Who else are we gonna hit up when we need to feed our boba cravings or go on foodie adventures? ๐Ÿฃ๐Ÿœ๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿฐโ˜•๏ธ โ€” โ€œWhat I cherish the most about KDPhi are the smaller moments that become unforgettable memories of my Duke experience. One, the somewhat dangerous driving style of my big Yasmine whenever we try new food every weekend. Two, driving to Baltimore with my sisters and stopping KBBQ at midnight along the way. Three, practicing our stroll on Saturday mornings despite my terrible dancing skills. Four, my sisters taking the time to show me around their hometowns whenever Iโ€™m in the region. Five, alumni who always welcome me with open arms whenever I visit, even if we have not previously met before. Six, everyone playing a role and contributing their time and energy to our initiatives, whether for breast cancer awareness, or for Wong Fu, or for fundraising. Seven, Nasher brunches and WaDuke afternoon teas and dim sum and fancy Italian food and boba boba boba. Eight, spicy ramen challenge and cook-offs and board games and Secret Santas. Nine, traveling with my pseudo big to Morocco and watching the sunrise together from the Sahara desert. Ten, endlessly tagging each other in memes <3 LnF, Zangieโ€ โ€” #dukeakdphi #whyakdphi

Now youโ€™re my TWIN. I learned that the girl who I had never spoke to before was actually a beautiful, kind, hilarious woman who deserves much more than the world has offered her. I gained a friend and a sister who would prove to inspire me with her warmth and friendliness among other admirable qualities.
