KDCHI SISTER SOLDIERS: They sacrifice their lives and answer the call of duty.

KDCHI SISTER SOLDIERS: They sacrifice their lives and answer the call of duty.

by Gina Garcia, VP of Public Affairs for Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc.

You may not know their names, but they sacrifice daily for you and your family. They shoot guns, endure sleepless nights, run for miles with 90lb bags on their backs and witness catastrophes we as civilians are blind to. These women are bonded to their comrades in a way that only fellow soldiers can fully appreciate. They are Latina, have families and loved ones back home, hold the values we've all come to know, only these women have combat boots in their closet next to their going out high heels. Each sister endured her own individual struggles to walk the line they have either serving in the military as they do now or have in the past. The military is a life of uncertainty as to where you'll be stationed, who you answer to and whether you could be called to Afghanistan, Iraq, to the Haitian earthquake aftermath or to the next unknown world-impacting event. Kappa Delta Chi, meet your SISTER SOLDIERS.


Denise Gonzalez, Alumnae in Washington, D.C. who's since moved to El Paso, TX

KDChi, Delta sister Reflects on her CHCI internship in Wash DC

KDChi, Delta's Karen Quintana chosen as CHCI blogger


April 20, 2010

"I'm witnessing history and wouldn't trade it for the world"

Karen Quintana is a Delta Chapter sister (Alpha Eta Class) who's in Washington DC interning with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) in the officers of Congressman Ciro Rodriguez (D-TX). She's majoring in Political Science with minors in Psychology & Spanish. There's so much on her to do list, but she's keeping an open mind about where she'll be in the future. She's originally from Sinaloa, Mexico and plans to graduate in the Spring 2011. She's been chosen as a featured blogger on the CHCI website and was also spotlighted on the KDChi national website. Let the spotlight shine on Ms. Karen Quintana who departs back to Tucson, Arizona this Saturday after completing the inaugural Spring Internship program with CHCI.

Recess and Stress by Karen Quintana:
"The stress of DC can be seen on the faces of staff members on the Hill. It is easy to get caught up in work that we do and we forget how to relax. I know that as an undergraduate, I am constantly on the go from class to work to meetings. It's both emotionally and physically exhausting. As an intern, there is also stress, especially when the office is busy. There are deadlines and certain expectations we each need to meet. The best way to relax is to talk about it. Luckily, all of us interns are really close. We are able to confide with each other about things that we go through on a daily basis. Also, exploring the city is one of my favorite aspects of life in DC. We can just jump on the metro and head to different parts of the city and have new adventures. My favorite thing to do here is trying new foods since the city is filled with different cultures so we explore new places to eat and the different cultures of the city. Never in my life have I tried so many different kinds of food than in the past couple of months. For instance, we have had Cuban, Salvadorian, Spanish, Dominican, Moroccan, and Ethiopian foods. Although our stress does not compare to those of our co-workers in the office, we are still able to observe and absorb some of the stress that comes from working in DC.

I feel extremely supported while I'm here. Although my family and friends aren't here, I have already built a support network with my fellow interns, co-workers, and KDChi sisters in the area. I reached out on the KDChi Facebook page and was able to meet so many sisters! They are all doing amazing things and are definitely upholding KDChi values. They inspire me everyday."

Kappa Delta Chi prides itself on our focus on community service, developing strong leaders who excel at every aspect of their collegiate and professional lives and our strong network of multicultural women. We thank you for your continued support of our sisterhood and its' mission to enact positive change.
