Authentically You: It Starts with Uncomfortability

Speakers 

Christina Parle

Let’s talk about sisterhood as Panhellenic women. Let’s talk about why we are here. Let’s talk about how the journey to authenticity involves being uncomfortable. Uncomfortableness is also a crucial component in learning and unlearning about the systems that exist that create spaces in which our sisters do not feel heard or supported. Let’s talk about that—how to be better for ourselves and others, so everyone can live authentically themselves.
