Little moments, big memories 👯
Our bigs are our mentors, confidants, role models, and friends. For pairs like Kate Lou *Solero* and Christina Wong *Seyval* that doesn’t end after graduation! Meet your future big this rush season at our recruitment events 😉
We asked Kate what her favorite little moment turned big memory was:
“A moment that I’ll always hold close to me (and I don’t even know if she remembers it 😂) was during one of the first rush events I ever went to! It was a joint event with another organization and I felt overwhelmed by all the people there and nervous because it was the first rush event I ever went to alone. I clearly remember standing awkwardly not even knowing what to do with my hands. Wongstina must have been looking for me because she made a beeline for me and hugged me, saying how excited she was that I came out:”) I’ll tell you a secret- I always felt like my big had a soft spot for me😌. Everything felt easier then; she lead me through the crowd and we had instant silly inside jokes. I felt so relieved and welcomed.
After I crossed, I was inspired by my big every day. She taught me so much about what it means to be a sister, student and friend. When I faced tough times, she was my cheer leader from the sidelines and encouraged me to go after what I wanted. She’s one of those people that leads by example and I hope I can follow in her footsteps. She graduated in 2017 and went back to NorCal, but she’s been giving me advice and sending me love from across the country😭💕 even though we can only reunite a few times a year now, I can always feel that familiar love when we’re together again whether we’re spillin tea 🍵, cuddling, or exploring new places. I have so many wonderful people in my life thanks to Kappas and I’m blessed she’s one of them!
