The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Annie is her laugh. It’s so genuine. It’s a belly laugh that stops in her in tracks. She can’t speak or walk-- she just laughs. It’s contagious to the point that I find myself stopped in my tracks, barely breathing and laughing my heart out when I’m with her. I lose track of the conversation, where we’re walking to, what I’m supposed to be doing because just being with Annie and laughing is enough. She is someone who doesn’t command attention but just her genuine joy and love for life can make my whole world stop. She is wild and smart. She driven and passionate. Annie seeks the honorable and beautiful things in life. I could sit and listen to her talk about her life, and her hopes and dreams forever because she speaks with such honesty.
I’ve gotten to watch Annie grow into her passions. I’ve gotten to watch her begin to trust herself and her feelings. She doesn’t shy away from telling you the things you need to hear. She is someone I know will always tell me what I need to hear. Annie is a true sister and friend. She is real and authentic and being around her it’s infectious. I am more honest when I’m with Annie. I laugh harder and longer. I am more passionate because of her. My Kappa Delta experience has only been better because of Annie and I know I’m not the only one to say that. I’ve seen the effect she has on those around her. For such a little human, she has already had a huge impact. I can’t wait to see where life takes her or where she takes life.
All my love in AOT,
