15 years of studying and working in marketing, I couldn’t help but notice sorority women have a ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR POWER OF INFLUENCE!
Imagine if sorority women used this power for GOOD!
I argue every city with a greek life should have better-run children’s programs, elderly homes busting with visitors, cleaner streets and better-organized nonprofits.
Imagine this buying power when it comes to supporting fair trade. I’m not even exaggerating when I say sorority women could flip the economic model of some third world countries!
Why do I care?
I was the college girl that looked for my happily ever after in all the wrong fraternity boys, Bacardi, and did I mention boys.
The better part of my teens and twenties I was totally convinced I had found my best life at the coolest frat party, with the hottest date, the finest outfit, and a deliciously strong cup of hunch punch in my hand. I was popular, I had friends, I had boyfriends….I WAS INCOMPLETE.
When the make-up came off, the drunken buzz turned into a terrible headache, and the guy that promised forever would never call again, I started to realize this wasn’t the best life after all.
Then I heard the story of the woman at the well from John 4 The woman was desperate to feel loved. She kept searching for love in a husband. Failed relationship after failed relationship left her feeling empty. Jesus met her there. In all her brokenness in her shame. She pretended like she had it all together but Jesus knew, as he knew about me, we were crumbling on the inside.
I learned I was trying to fill my cup with boys and booze but my cup had a whole at the bottom. Those temporary pleasures only made me feel full for a short while.
I prayed, “I don’t know what eternal water is, but if it exists, I want a keg of it”My full testimony here
Today I look across the coffee table at a younger me. Full of wonder, strangled in insecurity. Potential to change the world but set back in self doubt.
These girls are influencers, these girl are world changers. Yet they are crying into their coffee because they feel they are not enough. THIS SIMPLY SHOULDN’T BE.
I want you to see your worth. I want you to see what I didn’t see in myself when I was your age. Every great movement in our history has been started by young people and I believe today’s sorority women are the catalyst to our next great movement of the Lord.
I am simply a cheerleader, YOU are the world changer. I believe in you more than you know. Let’s change the world sweet friend.
