#3 Brother Splinter

1) Why did you rush Delta Epsilon Psi?

I rushed Delta Epsilon Psi for a couple of reasons. One reason was to help bring the South Asian community closer together in Denton, by hosting various service and social events. I am proud to say that we have successfully been able to do this since establishing Alpha Lambda in 2014. The other reason was to leave a legacy at UNT once I graduate. When I transferred to UNT back in 2012 from San Antonio, I wanted to leave my mark at UNT in a big way, and what better way to do this than by helping establish a colony of the fastest growing South Asian fraternity in the nation?

 

2) In one word, What characteristic do you feel best defines you?

Dedicated.

 

3) How did joining Delta Epsilon Psi impact your life?

Joining Delta Epsilon Psi was one of the best decisions I have made in my life. DEPsi has taught me that the word “can’t” should never be in my dictionary. The fraternity has made me realize my full potential and was able to help me break out of my shell, while building lifelong relationships, not only with my line brothers, but also with brothers across the nation.

 

4) What’s your favorite part about being a Delta?

My favorite part of being a Delta, I would say, is the amount of pride I have with being a Delta. Every time I throw up a Delta, I understand the amount of hard work we have put in and it gives me a sense of joy to see how far we have come, and to the places we will go in the future.

 

5) What are you doing to ensure you continue to grow and develop as a leader?

Something I’m doing to grow as a leader is to help shape the newer guys into leaders themselves. One of my favorite sayings is “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” What this means to me is I can either give someone a list of tasks and they will go on their way, or I can teach someone the purpose of what they are doing and convey my knowledge on the subject. This way, other generations after me can use that knowledge to develop themselves.

 

6) How do you plan on giving back to the fraternity once you graduate?

DEPsi has given me so many opportunities and rewarding experiences, that I feel it is rightfully so that I be readily available when the fraternity will need me. As mentioned, Delta Epsilon Psi is the fastest growing South Asian fraternity in the nation, so I will help contribute to that growth. To Alpha Lambda specifically, this is something that my line brothers and I created and start to develop, so I will help to see it sustain and maintain.
