Name: Michelle “Rnemosyne” Armstrong
Chapter, class and number: Georgia Tech, Theta Class, “Sedulous Six” #28
Major: Applied Language and Intercultural Studies
I’m 19 years old, and I am from the state of Georgia. I have an interest in anything random, and I love to have a good time. Although a good time to me consists of eating and sleeping. I am vegan. I enjoy watching basketball games on TV and listening to new music. I also have a really strong interest in languages. There’s a lot more, but I’d rather show you than to say it all here!
What’s your favorite hobby that you find yourself doing often?
I am still in the process of finding THAT hobby, but I’ve meddled in a few things this year. Here recently, I’ve been interested in sewing. I took a class once a week on campus, and I had so much fun. The teacher was really cool, and my class was full of really amazing people. I can’t wait to start some sewing projects over the summer!
What is your dream job and why?
I don’t really have a dream job, but I do know that I want it to involve working with people, whether it’s through a classroom, interviewing others, or anything else. I want to be able to use language to connect people of different backgrounds and cultures. I am a strong believer that we are all the same once we find a way to connect with one another. I hope my future career consists of connecting people in this way.
What inspires you to succeed?
Just knowing that the world is so vast inspires me. There is so much to see out there and do, and I know that one day I’ll be able to do all of these things. That’s what truly gets me up in the morning. Life is too quick to be angry all the time, so I try to live by this philosophy and do something meaningful each and every day. I can’t wait to experience the world in a way that makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something!
Advice for a successful semester as a student and active sister of DFL:
I believe the key to success is balance, and the sorority definitely helps with that. It teaches you to prioritize and manage your time better. It also helps with a lot of things related to being a successful student. There’s our virtue of academic excellence that constantly pushes you to keep your grades up. There’s the social aspect that helps you branch out and meet new people. And there’s so much more. If you just remember that you always have sisters supporting you, you’ll always do well!
What positions in the sorority are you most interested in pursuing and why?
I’ve only been Sisterhood and Assistant Recruitment Chair in the past, and this upcoming semester, I’ll be Alumnae Chair. I already know that Recruitment Chair is in my future, but I’d like to pursue some other positions as well. Nothing specific, but I just want to try out a lot of chairs and become a very versatile and useful sister to the chapter. I guess only time will tell which chairs I decide to hold.
Are there any funny moments with sisters?
Every time I’m with sisters there’s bound to be a funny moment. I can’t even remember a specific one because there are so many, and I feel like that’s the way it should be. I like that all of my times with sisters just run together because it makes me feel like I’m doing this sorority thing right. I want to always be able to have a good time with sisters, no matter what point I’m at in life.
I just believe that joining Delta Phi Lambda was one of the best choices I could’ve made in life. Sure it can be stressful sometimes, but a lot of beautiful things have come from joining as well. I can’t wait to see what the future of our sorority will be because I know that we are growing each and every day. We have a lot of amazing sisters, and I can’t to wait to meet as many as I can!
