Pledge Class: Gamma Xi
Harena Habte, originally from San Jose, CA, is currently a second year at San Diego State University pursuing a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management. She attended Prospect High School where she was involved with many clubs and organizations such as Link Crew, African Student Union, and even starting up Interact Club after it had been inactive for over five years prior. While holding the position of Vice President for Interact Club, Harena fell in love with being a leader and working with others to aid in one's goals and passions. At San Diego State, Harena knew that pursuing a degree in Business was the right decision for her, however, the one thing she felt she was missing was a place that offered her a community of like minded individuals in the field of Business. With that being said, Harena decided to rush for Delta Sigma Pi during fall semester of her second year and she is still figuring out why she did not join sooner, as it was her best decision yet. As part of the Gamma Xi pledge class, she held the position of Vice President, where she was able to grow professionally as she worked with her pledge class to ensure a successful pledging process. Her short time within the chapter has already given her a sense of what it means to be a leader, a clearer path on how to pursue her dreams, but most importantly, how amazing it has been to be surrounded by a family that is both driven and accepting. She is excited to see what the future has in store for her as part of Delta Sigma Pi and the continuance of the chapter's success. When Harena is not running around from class to class, she enjoys going to the gym, exploring new artists and music, and being outdoors with her friends.
