I want to apologize for being MIA these past few weeks. I’ve just been super busy working my head off on a feature for Sesi Magazine. Some of you may recall the interview I did with Andréa Butler, the Editor-in-Chief of Sesi last month, which turned out to be a great success. She was so sweet! Not too long after our interview, I decided to pitch Andréa. Unfortunately, she passed on my idea, but offered me the opportunity to write another article for the fall/back-to-school issue, which I accepted, of course. Since then, I’ve been working non-stop to make sure the article reaches its full potential.
My piece is about #BlackGreekLife. It’s a breakdown/guide of the four major Black sororities: Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho to help high school seniors decide which one is perfect for them. In the article, I address everything one should know before pledging from some of the common stereotypes to community service and leadership opportunities. The piece ended up being around 2,700 words, which is the longest article I’ve ever written, but it’s fine because I’m a magazines girl and everyone knows that magazine features tend to be on the longer side.
Being the perfectionist that I am, I put my blood, sweat, and tears into this piece, and I cannot wait for you all to read it! The image that you see above is actually the final cover (my story is on the bottom right hand corner). I’m sooo psyched. No word yet as to when the issue drops, but my guess is that it will probably be sometime in September. As of right now, Sesi is not available in stores. To order your copy for only $3.99, head over to sesimag.com/subscribe. They sell out fast, so don’t miss out!
