Choosing Sisterhood During National Ritual Celebration Week in February, Alpha Xi Delta’s National Ritual Chair, Andi Fouberg, wrote a blog post on The Inside Ink called “Choosing Sisterhood.” In the post, she says: “Hopefully kindly hearts have dominated your Alpha Xi Delta experience. In the chaos of every day, it is easy to forget the importance of being a Sister in every sense of the word. Your commitment to choosing to make the most out of our Sisterhood should also be about making sure your choices make the Sisterhood experience all that it can be for those around you. Inspiring women to realize their potential should not just be our stated vision, but something we do for one another and push each other to do every day.” Scan the QR code below to visit The Inside Ink and read the post in its entirety.
