Chapter/Member Spotlight
I'm Emmy Naw, the current Vice President External of alpha Kappa Delta Phi and I love what my sorority has given me. All the friendships, memories, and experiences that I will absolutely treasure for a lifetime.

I came to the United States at the age of 2 and I am now 20 years old. I’m currently a junior and I’m working towards my degree in Business Management, Finance, and Real Estate. Growing up I honestly had very little knowledge of my roots. I’m happy to say I’ve definitely found a deep love for my people and culture as I grew up. Now it’s time for me to give younger K’Nyaw generations the knowledge to love their roots through IAMKNYAW.

IAMKNYAW translates to I am Karen (the Karen people). It is an upcoming non-profit that I am working towards establishing. Currently, I hold the positions of Social Media Director and Administrator. I work with such an amazing team and we are so hands-on with everything that we do. This all started when Covid-19 started, my team was worried about our people back home and our first fundraiser was a success. We raised over $200,000 combined just within the past year alone. All the money is for IDPs in our home country Myanmar. We use the money to transport things such as food, water filters, feminine products, clothes, shoes, and much more.

Our people have been fleeing war and genocide for over 70 years. Right now, there is a diaspora of K'Nyaw people all over the world but I love that our younger generation including myself have been working towards bettering the lives of our people back home.

Although I can't be there physically, my team has done such an amazing job. I handle the backend of things, by updating the public and the donors of our current activities and I do behind-the-scenes administrative work as well. Trying to start an organization from scratch has definitely not been easy but all the work has definitely been worth it so far and I want to see it through and get it established by the end of this year.

Requirements for Potential New Members & Interests
Please don't forget that ALL potential new members and interests of a fraternity or sorority must attend all three workshops below before they begin the recruitment/intake process. All workshops are coordinated through the Barnes Center at The Arch Health Promotion.

Alcohol Safety 101
Participants will learn about general information on alcohol use, a variety of strategies for safer alcohol use, and how to recognize and respond to alcohol poisoning. The workshop is provided by Be Wise Peer Educators.

This workshop will discuss what bias is and provide real-life, relatable examples (recognize), as well as bystander intervention skills (stop). We will also discuss how to report and what the process looks like after you've done so (report). The workshop is provided by the STOP Bias Program.

Hazing Prevention
In this presentation, you will learn about what hazing is using an affirmative consent framework and how it can impact your social connections and mental health. Review how to recognize hazing and act as a prosocial bystander to intervene safely and help your peers that are experiencing hazing. This is an interactive session where you will practice scenarios and hear from other peers to help better equip you in responding if you see hazing among your friends and peers.

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"
