Soror Alexandra Mills from UMBC is a Gender and Women’s Studies major, which means she does a lot of thinking and reading about gender, race, class, sexuality, and a multitude of other dimensions of difference in relation to power, society, and life.

Alexandra says “I couldn’t wait to experience life as a sister and to contribute to our growth and continued success as an organization. I was immensely proud of myself and my line sisters, and I was hopeful for what the future would bring. I am immensely passionate about being a Z-Chi and I love and believe in everything that we stand for, and I constantly endeavor for us to reach new heights. (As a chapter president) My role is to help lead us further along the path of excellence by making sure that each sister is a leader in their own right, and that we maintain our bond as sisters while still succeeding as a chapter.” Outside of being a Z-Chi, Alexandra is also committed to public service, having been actively involved with Oxfam America, an international development organization that seeks to develop lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and social injustice.

“I have made my very best friends in this organization, friendships which I know will last a lifetime. Being a member of this extraordinary sisterhood has truly enriched my undergraduate experience and my life as a whole. I thank our wonderful Mommy Chi’s who had the vision to make this organization a reality and all the remarkable women who came after them whose commitment made us who we are today.”
