Hey I was interested in joining alpha kappa alpha sorority but the chapter at my school was suspended and they will be coming back this semester. Anyways I insta dm an aka on ig to ask her to mentor me and she never responded back. Would you know why? My friend whose a Greek said she won't have anything to do with the process bc grad chapter is dropping the line but I think I ruined my chances. Could you tell me why she likely didn't respond back?

Divine Love Answer:

Did you know the woman? 

This is all kinds of crazy. You can’t just dm a member on instagram that you don’t know and ask if they want to be your mentor. That’s so sketch especially since the chapter was suspended she was probably like oh hell no y’all won’t get my pearls snatched… at least that’s what I would have said.

Strengthandelegance I really want you to be my mentor as I pursue membership in to Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Is that possible at all?

Divine Love Answer:

Hey love,

So I have been slacking for real. I’m working and super busy and I really shouldn’t over commit myself. I learned that the hard way when I tried to do that book club even though I was working full time and finishing my masters and moving… that was a disaster. I love y’all and want to support you but I also don’t want to make promises I can’t keep…

That being said, I’m hoping to get my footing soon and be able to do more on the site. Message me on my personal tumblr and we’ll see how I can help you.

Be yourself. Honestly that’s the only way. People will always look at you differently or treat you like you don’t belong. At the end of the day, your actions, demeanor, principles and willingness to be unfazed by ignorance is what gets you accepted. It will not be easy

Here’s the thing…

Some of it isn’t ignorance. Some of it is deserved skepticism. Delta was founded for the uplift of the Black community with a special emphasis on Black women’s issues. That’s not to say that women of other races can’t be interested in that cause. I’ll tell you like I told a white interest when I was in college:

"Delta Sigma Theta is a dynamic organization. We are the largest of our kind in the world and our service is unmatched by any Greek organization. I can understand why any woman, regardless of race, would be interested in joining such a movement. That being said, you must understand that our focus is not just on service, but on service to the Black community. If you share that passion then I welcome your application but if you are at all interested in changing that mission then there are other organizations that would better suit your interests."

I am all for inclusion but let’s stay focused on the mission. My chapter crossed women of various ethnicities but our mission remained the same.

I sent the President of my school's AKA chapter an email about a week after she gave it to me at one of their events. I kept it short & professional. I asked her if I could speak with her again to gain more insight about her personal experiences & how her org has helped her grow personally and professionally. She basically replied that unfortunately she can't meet with me but if I have any more ?s feel free to email her. Did I do something wrong or can Greeks not meet up with interests ?

Divine Love Answer:

There are rules about meeting aspirants and the Alphas and AKAs have VERY VERY VERY Strict ones. In Alpha you need at least three certifications to officially talk to aspirants and one of those isnt easy to get. So ask her questions as though you are meeting with her face to face.

Do Greeks have an unhealthy obsession for older Greeks? Or what's that about?

Divine Love Answer:

Its called respect and admiration for the fact that Older Greeks have done what the younger Greeks will do and many things they will never do. Its the fact that Older Greeks have the experience and influence to get things done faster and with ease. Older Greeks also tend to hold the standard for younger Greeks to follow. Lastly Older Greeks can destroy a chapter

How do I properly go about expressing interest ?

Divine Love Answer:

Talk to the members, discretly, about their experiences and learn some history before hand.
