I’m a KD too. I also was bigger and on top of that one of the only Hispanics in the sorority. However I had a great experience and now I’m alumna and I love it even more.

AOT <3 I also am a size L and 5 foot tall, but we have a very diverse set of body types in my chapter at ETSU.

Reply Dayana Santander says: February 1, 2019 at 3:37 am What was ur degree on???? I looking to other careers so I have more choices to look into Reply Magdalie Mexile says: February 4, 2019 at 7:59 pm It honestly pisses me off that people are more worried about whether she’s “fat” or actually a M/L instead of the message of the video itself Reply Ellen Rumpff says: February 8, 2019 at 1:52 pm I am a Tri Sigma and I went to college in the mid 1990s. I have to admit the rush process was so discouraging for me. I was rejected from several houses right off the bat and I never knew what I did wrong. I remember crying with my Rho Chi, who was the sweetest person. In the end though, my sorority was the best fit for me and I loved my sisters! Reply loveandlucky3 says: February 8, 2019 at 7:12 pm I'm from the UK so we don't have sororities… honestly this sounds like a cult Reply Taylor’s Show says: February 9, 2019 at 5:57 pm You are so pretty!

Reply Michelle Curtis says: February 11, 2019 at 8:56 am Sororities and fraternities are much more than what you see on the surface but they are not for everyone. Before I joined alpha phi in university ( or college for my americans out there) I believed that all it was was paying for friends and partying. In fact the experience in the end is more about networking , meeting new people, taking on leadership opportunities, philanthropy etc. Many business leaders of today were in sororities and fraternities because of the networking and leadership skills you learn. As an Alpha Phi for life and as a continual volunteer to this day I would highly encourage women to join. It was 100% the best decision I made in university and wish I had made it during my first year. It's easy to judge until you understand what it's really about. Reply Sam Jodoin says: February 13, 2019 at 3:11 pm Discovering your channel in 2019 and I’ve been binge watching for days!! This positivity is amazing and exactly what I needed in my life! Love from Tri Sigma in Michigan💜💜 Reply Sabrina Qualls says: February 18, 2019 at 6:47 pm People saying cause youre a medium dosnt mean you cant feel fat but ut depends on proportions and height. Like i was a medium but i was also 200lbs and 5'1. Now im a large and 235lbs and 5'3 (i was 280 I'm trying to get healthier again) Reply Payton Lamon says: February 19, 2019 at 6:47 am KD SISTA💚💚💚 i knew there was a reason why I connected with you so well!!!!!💚 Reply ツL9w says: February 21, 2019 at 3:27 pm suck me off Reply Taylor Abair says: February 22, 2019 at 2:09 am Omg sister!!!!

Reply Makenzie Guthrie says: February 25, 2019 at 2:27 pm AOT girly 💚 forever proud to be a Kappa Delta and have sisters like you! Reply tash says: February 28, 2019 at 10:03 am man, college is different to university here in Australia. we don't have sororities or any of the sort. Most people dont move out of their family house to go to university. i just finished my nursing degree, didnt go to a single party. perhaps both a lack of interest, but honestly there was never any big parties lol Reply Donna Julia says: March 1, 2019 at 6:59 pm I am in a Panhel sorority in Canada (AOII!!), and I have never felt this way! Obviously, we were encouraged to look nice and represent yourself and your sisters while wearing letters, but I am so grateful that I never felt any of those pressures with my chapter. We did always have problems getting everyone on the same page with recruitment outfits, but we had a pretty diverse chapter when I was active! I am so sorry that you had those experiences! Reply Rebecca Chapman says: March 6, 2019 at 7:51 am I’m a Kappa Delta at a D1 school in Alabama! AOT Reply Take My Money says: March 7, 2019 at 1:20 am American teenagers are very strange Reply Breeski says: March 8, 2019 at 8:46 pm So are sororities just fancy names for cults? Reply Idc says: March 11, 2019 at 4:20 pm 3:00 imagine not only being curvy, but also being black and trying to rush lmao Reply Idc says: March 11, 2019 at 4:26 pm 7:10 almost a junior and I still flux the same 5lbs 😂 Reply Ellie Daugerdas says: March 14, 2019 at 9:08 pm We don’t do this in my sorority we all wear our srat apparel on our bum days BUT a lot of this is true right before rush or on social media. Reply joshua evans says: March 17, 2019 at 3:36 pm You big hoes are something else 😂 Reply : hoo says: March 18, 2019 at 5:51 am u seem so nice and pretty and ur voice is so calming! loved this ! Reply Leak C says: March 23, 2019 at 2:03 pm So I’ve been watching your channel for a while omg I love you !! And I’m in a sorority as well (nphc – one of the black sororities ) and my sorority’s stereotype “fat girl sorority” which sucks even though all sorority’s have “fat girls”. I guess it’s better to be the “fat girls” vs the “hazing girls/two faced girls etc” Reply Thomas H. says: March 23, 2019 at 4:36 pm Don't join a sorority then. Or lose weight. Reply Edward Ryan says: March 24, 2019 at 10:16 am never seen your videos before but I stumbled upon your title and I just wanted to chime in here and say: YOU ARE GORGEOUS. Legit not even “f*t” in my opinion. I hope you never associate that kind of language with yourself. I didn’t even see how old this video was but I hope you are past it. Reply RojerThat Cat says: March 25, 2019 at 5:38 am New to this channel, so did you also go to UCSD & graduate? Or are you still in college? Reply Ashley Bellerose says: March 26, 2019 at 5:17 am Is sororities an American singing cuz I've never heard about it here and at my college we don't have that Reply Kinsey Brooks says: April 2, 2019 at 10:55 pm AOT sweet girl!

Reply Raina Lanier says: April 17, 2019 at 11:12 pm Thanks for sharing! My sorority all ordered huge shirts so no one was ever ordering a small T-shirt 😂😂 but I get it! Thankfully some sororities such as mine, and sounds like yours, value the person more than the body! Reply Hannah L says: April 18, 2019 at 9:06 pm As a reformed sorority girl, it was a REDONK world. I loved it, but I learned to separate the sisterhood from the BS Reply Mehthany says: April 21, 2019 at 7:02 pm Just catching this now. OMG! My mom was a kappa delta!! I didnt go to college, but that would have been the sorority I would have wanted to pledge. 😊😊 Reply Laura Glasgow says: April 22, 2019 at 9:31 pm I wanted to be in a sorority when I was in college but didn't. On my first day on campus while waiting in line to check into my residence hall and their were girls passing out recruitment info. They gave a flyer to the girl in front of me, looked me up and down, walked past me and then gave another flyer to the girl behind me. I mildly regret not going through recruitment but that put such a sour taste in my mouth for fraternity and sorority life I just never wanted to try. I'm glad your experience was better though! Reply Erin Lisa Aulfinger says: April 24, 2019 at 5:53 am More than a year late to this…but I'm about to graduate from college and I'm a current collegiate member of Zeta Tau Alpha in the Iota Xi chapter. I also joined as a sophomore.One thing I will say is my chapter is tiny, depending on the semester we have about 40-60 members (woo people graduating/transfering over the summer). We have a fairly diverse membership in just about any way you can think of, but you definitely see more of these women being fairly petite.Luckily, ZTA has been a very accepting place for me, and has called me (and all of my sisters) beautiful. I don't think it contributed much to my body image issues.Except the damn rush week clothing rules. I hated that year. Much preferred the freedom of dress I had as a Gamma Chi recruitment counselor this most recent primary recruitment season. Reply Lori B. says: May 3, 2019 at 10:22 pm You are not fat!!!! Chi-O hugs. 🦉 Reply Kit Hale says: May 18, 2019 at 10:48 pm I'm with Jule M on this . I have no personal experience of sorority life but I do remember that someone I know went for a yearly sabatical to an American college and one night got so drunk she jumped from the top window of her house. She broke her back. I am no expert but it sounds likegroups of horrible people getting their kicks by bullying other people. Reply lou bear says: May 31, 2019 at 1:16 pm Sierra literally cannot win ive been watching half of her vids and if she says fat people say that shes not fat and shes making larger people feel bad, but when she says curvy she gets comments saying that she is too big to be curvy, she said she was hourglass and everyone kept going on about how she wasn't Reply Crystal Lewis says: June 5, 2019 at 3:27 pm I'm glad I went to a college in NYC that didn't have a strong Greek life. Reply Starbucks Lover says: June 10, 2019 at 3:26 pm Tell me if I’m fat, my wait is 124 Reply Jaae Serra says: June 10, 2019 at 10:24 pm I’m 101% positive we went to High School together, but never got a chance to connect. I just want to say that I love your channel and am so glad you’re doing good! ❤️ Reply Sydney Roney says: June 20, 2019 at 8:18 pm I’m an Alpha Omicron Pin at a college in Tennessee, and I could talk about how much I love my sorority allll day. I wear XL t-shirts and size 14 jeans. I’ve never once been called fat or judged because of my “bigger” appearance. Join a sisterhood that loves you for YOU!!!!!!!!

Proud GAMMA PHI BETA!! 💖🌙 Reply Miranda says: July 6, 2019 at 1:57 am AOT sister 🥰 Reply Jill Kealling says: July 6, 2019 at 2:13 am I was one of many bigger girls in my sorority. I went to a commuter based school, so the sorority was much smaller and therefore more close knit. My sophomore year one of our girls got gastric bypass and our whole group kinda rallied around her. We got her fun leggings, visited her through recovery, and changed our bid day location to make sure we were somewhere that she could find something to eat. All groups are different, just like all the people that make them up are different. Reply Holly McCurdy says: July 10, 2019 at 7:15 pm Staying healthy in college is super important and I think people should care. Working out helps so much with concentration and doing well in school.

Girl, you’re absolutely GORGEOUS. ♥️ Reply Taegan Skye says: July 21, 2019 at 12:53 pm Watching this is crazy Bc hazing allegations are huge and sororities get shut down right away at the college I’m going to in the fall. And the 2 sororities I’m interested in have girls that are exactly your body type and short. I’m more nervous about getting in because my hair is green now! Reply Katie Lloyd says: July 22, 2019 at 8:33 pm Can’t wear your sorority sweatshirt when you’re not wearing make up. What the actual fuck. Reply Brooke Jump says: July 23, 2019 at 6:09 pm I really hate when people make videos like this. Just because your personal experience was bad doesn’t mean all Greek life is. It’s incredibly heartbreaking when people put stuff out like this and make people think negatively when these cases are extremely extremely rare. I have never felt judged in my chapter and we have girls of all shapes, sizes, ethnicity, personality, etc. not all chapters are like this I PROMISE YOU, so please give Greek life a chance and don’t make videos like this scare you away Reply Emma Galante says: July 24, 2019 at 1:45 am AOT BABYYYYY Reply Stephanie Weith says: July 24, 2019 at 4:03 am Hey Kappa Delta sister!

In mine some of the stuff you said is true like we are not allowed to post a lot of things on social media. However, there is no pressure in my sorority to look a certain way all the time. Our only clothing room is no sweatpants or sweatshirts when recruiting new sisters. We also do not buy matching outfits, we let everyone style themselves . If we are matching it is just a t-shirt, or just have something you like this color. If the sorority you rush for is anything like mine, it will be 100 percent body diversity!

College kids are getting ready to become adults, they finally have freedom, and these sororities are literally putting rules on you, and having requirements to get in. Like, imagine if actual friendmaking was like this. Interviewing each other and seeing if you meet the standards. What the helllll Reply Elise Butcher says: September 5, 2019 at 4:33 am I'm in kappa delta too! so glad you found a great house. AOT sis Reply louiseglasgow says: September 8, 2019 at 1:39 pm Going to University (UK) when grunge was in was the best (for me anyway), we didn’t wear much make up during the day (none or a little) and it was totally fine to wear or not wear it to parties, pubs and clubbing depending on how you felt that day and what look you liked. I think I only ever did a full face of make up for balls and I’m not even sure I did it every time then. Most evenings out were eye shadow, mascara, lipstick and blusher at most. I think we thought we were changing the world and rebelling but in reality grunge was just another trend that came and went. Still glad that’s when I was at Uni though. To this day the idea of any workplace (other than acting etc) or group requiring anyone to wear makeup makes me feel so uncomfortable. But I’m not going to lie, I feel like back then we judged women who did wear a full face of make up all day every day (there’s always something isn’t there!) and I’m thankful to have rethought that. If someone wants to wear makeup -great, if they don’t, also great. Why do we try to control how others look so much!? Reply Tyler Ferrara says: September 10, 2019 at 1:05 am Long story short anyone? Reply Emi says: September 11, 2019 at 12:41 am I dont know what everyone else is talking about, but the only time u should really be worried about your weight is when your doctor tells you that your weight compared the standards for YOUR typical body type are considered unhealthy. Reply Cassie Fort says: September 16, 2019 at 3:37 am I think its easy to forget when going through rush that you are doing this for more than just letters and at the end of the day you want to be surrounded by women who support you, every perfection and flaw. You were exactly right, if a sorority doesn't want you because of the way you look, why would you want to surround yourself with those kind of people. When I went through rush their was roughly 2000 girls rushing at FSU. I had to keep reminding myself and others to stay humble and really decide if these girls want you because of your looks or want you for everything you have to offer. Can proudly say I ran home to AOII 4 years ago now, where I was surrounded by women beautiful inside and out. Reply Lady Fierce says: September 16, 2019 at 5:43 pm It varies from campus to campus though. At my college KD had all the cute little blondes and did their date parties with only the most bro of the fraternities 🤷🏻♀️ and I think the rule about not looking sloppy in your letters was a thing in every sorority on my campus so Greek life as a whole had the “proper” representation Reply Lara Elkady says: September 17, 2019 at 1:37 am omg I didn't know u were a KD C: AOT sister Reply hailey gabi says: September 17, 2019 at 12:27 pm You're a legacy tho Reply rinbrig says: September 17, 2019 at 3:49 pm Any tri sigma sisters here?💜💜💜 Reply Morgan Olencz says: September 19, 2019 at 12:55 am Alpha phi at my school makes girls dig their own graves and do coke lol.

Reply - rainbowine - says: September 21, 2019 at 11:53 pm Theres kinda no point of sororities because it just makes college life more stressful. Idk, that's what I think. Other than just raising money for charity or smth… Reply MsSarahlynn2013 says: September 23, 2019 at 10:25 pm 1000% yes. I am an Alumia of my own sorority (DZ) and so much of this video hit home for me. I was lucky enough that with my Pledge Class and the one just before us the body image had begun to shift from all smalls and mediums to including more women in medium, large, and even extra-large. As time passed the ratio got better and now I visit the chapter as an alum for founders day and it is beautiful to see <3 Reply Ruth Chi says: September 29, 2019 at 2:16 am Shapeless swing dresses are not just for skinny girls!
