KKG At Mizzou Will Make You Rethink Sorority Stereotypes

Being in a sorority is, simply put, awesome. You meet a ton of people, you have access to incredible resources for academic success, your social life is nothing short of joyful and prosperous, and every once in awhile, you get to do something really, really cool. Like Mizzou Kappa Kappa Gamma is doing with their “Breaking Barriers” project.

From their Facebook page:

Everyday we face the stereotypes that society gives us, and everyday we overcome these stereotypes. We are sorority women, we are strong and we are proud. We are Theta chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma.

The sisters of KKG went ahead and starting defying stereotypes on their own.
