Inside Brother Shaun T’s Big Break

Brother Shaun T (Nu Iota - Rowan University) was recently interviewed by NPR for an “All Things Considered” segment called “My Big Break.”  The story of Shaun T’s rise to prominence is inspirational, from his escape from an emotionally abusive relationship to the prodding of friends to take his efforts further, to his fortuitous meeting with the…

In case you didn’t know, I am a PROUD member if the illustrious Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.! This past weekend I attended my first Boule (our biennial national conference) at the Gaylord hotel and resort on the National Harbor in Prince George’s County, MD. Though I’m 11 years old in Sigma, this is a feat because as any sorority member will tell you, Boule is far from cheap. However, with this Boule in my own back yard — 20 minutes from home, thus saving money on flight and hotel — I couldn’t pass it up. 

Listen. Whether you are my soror or you are a member of another organization in the Divine 9, you MUST make it your business to attend a Boule/convention. I’ve always known I belonged to a wonderful sisterhood and have attended many regional conferences, but when you experience the magic that is your NATIONAL conference, it’s a whole new view. I love my sorors and that love has been extremely overwhelming in return. One of the best decisions I ever made was Sigma Gamma Rho. 

A helpful tip for my sorors who have never attended Boule but plan to in the future: PACK. FLATS. I know you want to be flyy in your heels, but you’ll only need one or two pairs of those, and you will barely want to wear them. LISTEN TO ME. Lol!

I love my sorors. I love my SGRho.
