Choosing to join APO has truly changed my life, as cheesy as that sounds. I have a new found confidence and I am able to recognize the impact that I’m making in the community. I have been able to think selflessly and throw myself completely into doing community service. I have made lifelong friends and I will cherish my time in Theta Kappa forever. Miles for Matias has been one of the proudest moments of my life. Seeing the work that Katrina and I put into it and what we were able to accomplish fills me with joy and the fact that we raised almost $2,800 for Pediatric MS research is one example of making my mark in the world.
“I joined Alpha Phi Omega because I wanted to do community service while making some new friends. In the end, I got much more than that. Throughout my time in APO, I have made friends I consider family, gained leadership skills, helped the community that has given me so much and become a more confident individual.
I have had so many great experiences in Alpha Phi Omega. One of my favorite places to do community service with APO is at the Children’s Home. I am very passionate about children and enjoy getting a chance to make their day a little more fun. I am grateful for all the opportunities that APO has given me and look forward to see all the experience that are still to come.”
