Today on campus, a young black woman excitedly came up to me and exclaimed, “I KNEW you were an AKA!” I laughed and asked was the head to toe pink and green the last 2 weeks a give away, and she looked confused and said, “No, I thought you were in September, when you started here. You just walked around like one.” —
I mulled over that for the past few hours. The honor to be a woman of Alpha Kappa Alpha isn’t even a month old. But, I have tried to become a woman who could possibly be a good candidate - a woman of esteem, a woman of morality, a woman of dignity. So maybe she caught me as I was becoming. Becoming a woman approved to walk with the spirit of Ethel Hedgeman Lyle’s vision fair. Becoming a woman strong enough to do the work required of Beta Gamma Omega. Becoming a woman dependable enough to be a divine piece of an exquisite eleven.
I’ve spent all of this time becoming, that I still sometimes can’t believe I am Alpha Kappa Alpha woman. But the journey doesn’t end - I am becoming a leader, becoming a change agent, and becoming a sister to women who help each other.
I hope I always pinch myself when I put on pink and green, and I hope when other young women see me, in any shade, they say, “she’s an AKA.” 💗💚 #AKA111#aka1908#skeewee#alphakappaalphasororityinc#aka#1908#j15#thankyouethel#alphakappaalpha#prettygirlsrock#prettygirlswear20pearls#thatpinkthatgreen#divine9#akasnaturalhair

I see you watching 😘
Have you guys seen my new IGTV post yet? Give it a watch and leave me a comment with your thoughts 🤗
We tried to stream tonight. Internet couldn't handle it apparently :( wish I still had my own Internet. I'm going to have to put it on pause for as long as I'm not at my own house and then reinstate it once I get my own place. I'm super excited to have my own apartment! I'm planning now for the things that I'll need. Any suggestions? Lmk what you think are essentials when it comes to moving out into an unfurnished apartment!
Here's your daily dose of Kay 💋
Oh and my booty too 💕
