Theta Woman Poem
Loyal to the cocoon
From where she comes
The Theta Woman rises out of a lavender dawn
To proudly bridge the gaps in her world
With her butterfly wings.
With honesty and courage
She lives and loves without conditions
Surrendering to her beauty and power
She gives and receives freely
Remembering her vision, her purpose, her heart.
Creator of her own definition
She inspires those around her
To be proud and selfless
To give unselfishly over and over again.
Loving herself as she loves others
The butterfly transcends
Taking others with her in her flight.
— Soror Ayodele Carroo, Alpha Chapter, Spring 1998
Theta Nu Xi is proud to support the efforts of Girl Up, a campaign of the United Nations Foundation that gives girls the opportunity to channel their energy and compassion to raise awareness and funds for United Nations programs that help some of the world’s hardest-to-reach adolescent girls. With more than 1,300 clubs in 80 countries, Girl Up’s international network is learning leadership skills and the self-confidence to stand up, speak up, and raise up for their peers in the United States and around the world by raising funds for programs that support education, health and safety for girls; by raising awareness of these key issues; and by advocating for solutions that will allow girls everywhere the chance to achieve their dreams.
