Noel Miller (Theta Sigma-Southern Utah)
2009 ELI graduate
Attending ELI this past summer was one of the best experiences of my life. ELI stands for Emerging Leaders Institute, and not only did I meet 50 other girls from around North America, I was taught information that will stay with me for a life time. We went over everything from how to remember names to our values in Alpha Phi.
As the school year has started, and my chapter just finished recruitment I realize how much more I actually know now because of that experience. When I look back on ELI I hope to teach my chapter how wonderful Alpha Phi really is, and how many doors it has opened up for me.
I try to share my experience by example. That one week in July has forever changed who I am as a person. I learned so much about my values and the values of Alpha Phi. I believe I carry myself differently, that I posses more leadership qualities. and that I am able to one day become a leader of the Theta Sigma chapter. I hope that the girls from my chapter see and believe that my experience has made me who I am.
