The Jade Times spotlights Annie “Protégé” Chow, a graduating senior from the University of Georgia, as the featured dedicated female leader who showcases her passion in philanthropy.
As the philanthropy chair for Alpha Chapter, Chow planned their annual philanthropy week. She collaborated with UGAge, Lambda Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Inc. and Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity to bring back prom night to the senior citizens of Morningside Retirement Home.
“Because of how dedicated she is to our mission and our sisterhood, she is my role model and the type of sister I strive to be,” said Judy “Derive” Nam, an undergraduate sister from UGA. “This semester, she was our philanthropy chair and helped guide Alpha Chapter through a successful and innovative philanthropy week.”
This year marks Chow’s second term as the philanthropy chair for UGA. Nam praises Chow for “genuinely caring about the well-being of every sister,” especially younger sisters.
“She is the type of person who impacts you and makes you want to be a better person while making you feel great about who you are with just one conversation,” Nam said.
As the secretary for UGA’s Multicultural Greek Council (MGC), Chow led the initiative to raise funds for the local Boys and Girls Club through the first annual MGC Superhero 5K. Chow is also a resident assistant at Creswell Hall.
Patricia “Retrospect” Son, another UGA sister, admires Chow’s leadership within the university’s community and said she is a “constant role model” for younger students.
“Annie continues to aspire to be a leader in the community by being a teacher after she graduates,” Son said. “By recently passing her certification test, she is one step closer to fulfilling her dream of teaching in Jacksonville, FL. Annie constantly demonstrates her magnanimous passion and dedication inside and outside of sorority life.”
Chow is one among many of our dedicated female leaders. Continue to be on the lookout for more sister spotlights through the last week of Women’s History Month on the website and Instagram (@thejadetimes).
