Pledge Class: Gamma Xi
Harena Habte, originally from San jose, CA, is currently a third year at San Diego State University pursuing a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management. Involving herself in many clubs and organizations throughout high school, 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 Management was the right decision for her, however, the one thing she felt she was missing was an organization that offered her a community of like minded individuals in the field of Business. With that being said, Harena found Delta Sigma Pi and decided to pledge during the fall semester of her second year. 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 class to ensure a successful pledging process. Her time within the chapter has already given her a sense of what it means to be a leader as it encouraged her to serve as Senior Vice President for the Fall 2019 semester only one semester after being in the chapter. Having the opportunity to be in charge of recruitment has given Harena the confidence and skill set she never knew she had, which is why she is super excited to remain on exec, now holding the position of Vice President of Scholarships & Awards. Harena is excited to continue giving back to a chapter that has given her the tools to be successful in the world of business and has enabled her to reach new levels both professionally and personally. 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.
