It was an esteemed honor to be invited by my father’s (Dr.J.A. “Chico” Arenas) fraternity, Omega Psi Phi, ETA NU Chapter, Pompano, FL; to join them in their first “GET L.I.T.” Community Outreach Event. I led my workshop with the young ladies, “Writing Like a P.R.O,” and discussed how writing and literacy impacts their social media presence. The men of Omega Psi Phi invited me to share with the entire group, as well. I extended my commitment to serve with the chapter’s youth group to encourage citizenship, academic scholarship, and political activism throughout next school year.
Today’s program also included:
FREE BLOOD MOBILE Ω HIV SCREENING Ω HEALTH SCREENING Ω SWAT (STUDENTS WORKING AGAINST TOBACO)
TECHNOLOGY WORKSHOP Ω UNITED WAY Ω LEGAL-SHIELD Ω RONALD MCDONALDS TABS PROGRAM Ω RELAY FOR LIFE
MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS Ω VOTER REGISTRATION Ω FLOMOBIL Ω ALI CULTURAL CENTER Ω NAACP.
I am proud to be a good “lil sister” to the Men of Omega Psi Phi and it is an honor to assist them in their endeavors.
