Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society Induction

It makes me SOO happy to see women having a leadership position-to have a voice, to be represented, and to call the shots. When I ran for Student Body President in high school, a guy told me that a girl can't take on a leadership position. 
As the Executive Board Member of the Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society I'm part of the statistic of women that are breaking the glass ceiling accomplishment by accomplishment ;)
Watch out society, GIRL POWER is in FULL blast <3

I'm also consciously working on breaking the stereotype of what a 'good student' looks like, aka I purposefully keep my septum piercing in my nose and my bold tights and shinny sneaker wedges while giving speeches on behalf of PTK. A successful academic girl isn't just one who studies hard and gets good grades and can be found in the back of the library. Instead, its the girl dancing first on the dance floor as much as raising her hand first in class; the girl who loves makeup as much as science; the girl coloring her hair as much as she attends her study group. I want people to join because they feel comfortable in the diversity, not in a cookie-cutter appeal behind the label of a 'good student.'
