It is my greatest honour to introduce you to the Beta Kappa Chapter of Alpha Delta Pi! My name is Emilia Sahraie and I'm a third year International Relations student at UBC. I am currently serving as our Chapter President, and have served on our Executive Committee as the Vice President of Event Management. I hope our website allows you to see the power of our sisterhood for yourself!
I came home to ADPi in January of 2018, and it has truly been a life-changing experience. I have been able to expand my horizons in all aspects of my life — from setting high standards in academic achievement, to professional networking opportunities, and being able to constantly give back to my community and the Ronald McDonald House. Throughout my leadership opportunities in ADPi, I have learned so much about myself as a leader, and the value behind surrounding myself with confident and strong-willed women. Every ADPi is unique in her own way, and we celebrate how our authenticity empowers us to accomplish remarkable things! Along the way, I have found some of the greatest friends that have stuck by me for all the ups and downs of university. I know that they’ll be by my side for the long run, which is why ADPi will always be my home away from home. I hope to get a chance to meet you during Formal Recruitment and share with you more of what Alpha Delta Pi means to me!
