Every once in a while, it is nice to be reminded that you are loved and accepted for the person you are. It is important that we encourage each other to embrace our genuine selves. Luckily, Wright State has organizations on campus that are dedicated to doing just that.
The Xi Xi Chapter Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. is hosting its RHOck Your Body event, a confidence clinical dedicated to helping women love and appreciate the value in themselves.
“[RHOck Your Body will have] an open discussion to talk about the things that make us insecure. Then we dance, [with the help of] a choreographer showing us the moves, and remind one another how we’re beautiful in our own ways,” said D’Ache Rankin, president of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. “[We also] make an empowerment bracelet,” added Rankin.
What’s also great about this event is that it is open to the public and it is free.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for women through community service and civil and social action.
“Our motto is ‘Greater Service, Greater Progress’. We always end our week with community service; anything we can get our hands on. We do park cleanups, we go to the homeless shelters and pass out meals and we have mentoring programs with the youth, so we try to reach out to our lower clubs like teenagers. We also have rosebuds, which are elementary school children. Even if we can take an hour out of our day to go and read with them or spend time with them [is great],” said Rankin.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority also has their founders week coming up on Nov. 12, which includes a whole week of events.
“[Founders week includes] prancing and African dancing on Tuesday, which is partnered with the African Student Union, meet the Poodles [sorority members] on Wednesday, a paint and sip event and a bone marrow table to raise awareness on Friday,” Rankin said.
