Who or what inspired you to become a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.?
"I was blessed to have an older sister, LaTonya L. Small, who became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in the Spring of 1988. As a young girl, I had a first-row seat to witnessing service and community impact through social action and sisterhood. My sister was among the trailblazing women who educated, equipped, and made a difference in the lives of others. As I became older, one of my aspirations was to be able to call my sister, my soror, and also, in turn, empower and elevate the lives of others."
