Sororities were always something I just thought about as this thing you see in American movies. I never, and I really mean NEVER, thought I would be in one. When I started Hotelschool and heard there were sororities and fraternities in the school I didn't give it much thought. I have never been much of a girly girl or liked hanging out in big groups of girls (to be honest, I find it a bit intimidating haha) and I just thought it wasn't for me at all. But then I started to get to know some of the girls in Amitera, I went to a promo drink and before I knew it I had been asked to be a pledge. It just kind of happened. The last few months as pledges have been both fun and hell. We went on hazing weekend which was like the worst weekend of my life, we've fought a lot and I have been so frustraded at points and just ready to drop out. But I have also gotten to know so many amazing people. And we've already created some great memories together. This week we finally had our inauguration and became official members of Amitera CCS.
I am so happy I made the decision to join and that I stuck with it even though I didn't always want to. I have not just gained a bunch of amazing friends, but I have become part of this sisterhood. I have a group of girls that I know I can always turn to, that have my back and will support me through anything. I am looking forward to all the laughs and adventures to come with these girls and I am so happy to have this little family and safe place in school and Amsterdam when everything gets a bit too overwhelming. When one of the board members held a speach and said something about all of us pledges, she said that even though I had said that I never thought I'd be a sorority girl, neither of them can imagine this group without me now. In the same way I can't imagine these coming 3.5 years left of school without my AMIs.
