And for that, the C in WCB stands for Centennial today 😀
I can’t recall if I’ve written much about DPhiE (Delta Phi Epsilon, my sorority) on the blog, but I can summarize it with the following:
- 100 years ago, five women who were shunned from joining other sororities due to their religious beliefs, banded together to create a non-sectarian organization, welcoming women from all walks of life who were looking to uphold the values of dedication, pride, excellence, justice, sisterhood and love. In 2007, that organization welcomed me to their Alpha Gamma chapter at FIU, and today my career and my circle of friends has been shaped almost exclusively by that experience.
I have so much to thank DPhiE for – giving me confidence in myself to reach for high opportunities, exposing me to people from all kinds of backgrounds, improving and cultivating my skills (something I’d realize the value of once in Corporate America), and just an overall exponential growth that would’ve otherwise been unlikely to happen without my immersive experience in it.
As my sisters all over the world get ready to celebrate 100 years of sisterhood and all that it means to each of us, headquarters is hosting a couple of events, for which they reached out to me to create a set of custom, jumbo and glittery props to liven up pictures. I also made some of these for the bi-annual convention, so behold, a purple and gold parade of your dreams!
I had a blast designing these, and I do have a special attachment to them because of what DPhiE means to me. The pictures honestly don’t do the shine of the glitter justice, but trust me when I tell you that coupled with the camera flash, they’re BLINDING! My favorites to make were the DPhiE 100 with the centennial written in cursive in front (cursive font is Magnolia Sky for anyone interested), and the white iridescent circle with the 100 in the middle of the dot triangle. That was the new DPhiE logo, and I got to bring it to life with endless glitter. #Obsessed.
I also got some shots of sisters enjoying the props during the event:
The “throw what you know” hand sign in perspective (bottom right picture) is EVERYTHING! Love seeing the props in action by real unicorns ❤
Hope you guys liked these props and to my sisters all over: Happy Centennial! YITS!
