We are excited to announce our 2017-2018 Foundation Collegiate Ambassadors! Our Foundation Ambassadors are passionate and willing to advocate for Tri Sigma Foundation’s mission, including our philanthropic partnership with March of Dimes. The Ambassadors will be work closely with Tri Sigma Foundation staff and volunteers to educate members about the Foundation and its giving opportunities, such as Lucy’s Legacy Undergraduate Giving Club.
DESTINY ALDERIN, EPSILON NU
I’m from the Epsilon Nu chapter at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I will be a junior and I intend on obtaining my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I joined Sigma in the Fall of 2016 and have gained so much already. Sigma has given me a family and shown me the true meaning of empowerment. I have served as ritual chair, fundraising chair, efficiency chair and philanthropy chair. “Sigma isn’t what you do, it’s who you are.” Being one of the Dunham Woman of Character representatives for my chapter has allowed me first-hand experience in what the foundation is and what it does for Tri Sigma, children and families all around the world. I am honored to take on this role as an ambassador to represent the foundation but as well my Epsilon Nu chapter and show the world how to learn, lead and give back.
JASMINE CRAME, CHI
Originally from small town Gardner, Kansas. I attend Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas where I am pursuing a degree in Elementary Education and finishing up with an “English Speakers of Other Languages” certificate. When I’m not studying, I spend my time running, walking my dog, or spending time with my best friends. I joined Tri Sigma in the Fall of 2014 at Missouri Western State University; I then transferred after my freshman year and have experienced the power behind Tri Sigma’s mission everyday. Because of Tri Sigma, I love being heavily involved in organizations that enable me to experience leadership, networking, community service, and philanthropic activities. I am so excited to be a part of the Foundation Collegiate Ambassador program so I can give back to an organization that has given and continues to give so much to me!
MADISON GILBRIDE, ZETA ALPHA
I attend Bryant University and will be a sophomore in the fall studying Marketing and Analytics with a minor in Communications. I am a Student Ambassador and Zeta Alpha’s Public Relations Chair. I am also a part of the Marketing Club and Bryant’s CEO Club. Fun fact about myself is I am obsessed with ice cream and have donated my hair five times. As a Foundation Collegiate Ambassador, I hope to help inspire and motivate sisters from all over to become more involved with our philanthropy. I have been volunteering alongside the March of Dimes with my mom for the last four years and my passion for this organization has grown. With this position, I hope to help positively impact my sisters to continue volunteering their time, giving back to the community, and enjoy knowing they are making a difference in the world for so many mothers and families.
JENNY SUNGA, EPSILON SIGMA
I am a junior at Virginia Commonwealth University studying biology with a pre-med track. I am a proud sister of the Epsilon Sigma Chapter serving as their Community Service Chair. During the summer, I welcome new students and families into the VCU community as a Student Orientation Leader and a Ram Camp Leader. I am involved on campus through the Emerging Leaders Scholarship Program and the Filipino Americans Coming Together organization. I also volunteer at our Ram Pantry, VCU Health hospital and Wellness Center. Like these experiences, becoming a Foundation Collegiate Ambassador allows me to be a part of something bigger than myself. But who really inspired me to want to serve in this position is my older sister who is a travel NICU nurse. After walking in the 2017 March for Babies and hearing “thank you for supporting what I do every day,” I realized that we are making an impact as empowered Tri-Sigma women.
MAKAYLA WICHMANN, EPSILON RHO
I am from Rochester, Minnesota. At Minnesota State University Mankato, I study Elementary Education. I am currently the Vice President of New Member Education and previously served as the Education Director of the Epsilon Rho chapter. It brings me so much joy to support my sisters and help grow future leaders. Even as a child, my family always knew I would enter a profession centered around helping children. As I have grown older, my passion for helping others has grown too. I’ve always wanted to find a way to get involved with Tri Sigma on a national level. This organization has molded me into a strong empowered woman and I wanted a way to give back. I am excited to be on the Ambassador team and give my time to a Foundation that gives so much!
