This past summer I was chosen along with 31 other Alpha Chi Omega members from around the U.S. to embark on a service trip with the Alpha Chi Omega Headquarters. Our service trip took place in Treasure Beach, Jamaica as well as Negril, Jamaica where we really immersed ourselves in the Jamaican culture. In both locations we did all kinds of projects from laying cement for a basketball court to painting an entire school house. Although the work was exhausting, it was so rewarding to see local members of the community come out and help us fix up their schools. It was also quite amazing to meet other Alpha Chi’s from different chapters and bond over our sisterhood. Ultimately, it was a trip I will never forget and I am so thankful to be apart of an organization that offers these kinds of experiences!
