I came into college not the most confident with myself and definitely not the best at making connections prior to that. I tried and joined different organizations, but it still just felt like something was missing. Fast forward to spring quarter my sophomore year when ASK was founded at UCSB, I made the tough decision to give another organization a shot. And looking back as a fresh graduate now, I have to say that joining ASK was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my undergrad career at UCSB, because I have found a sense of community with the fun sisters who are just as genuinely passionate about STEM and sisterhood as I am. I have also made friends who I know have my back and that I will be able to do things with post-graduation. As my undergrad has come to a close here at UCSB, I can safely say that I would not have had a nearly as fulfilling of a time at UCSB if I didn’t end up joining this sisterhood. ♥️
