We, the ladies of this Great Sisterhood take pride in shining the Spotlight on Soror P. InPSItphul Shipp , as she truly embodies the “Essence of Feminism” and is a True Kappa woman!!!
We sat down in an interview with Soror P. InPSItphul Shipp and found her delightful when asked the following questions:
How did you find out about Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc.?
I did my research on several LGBT Sororities that cater to the feminine woman. Out of the various organizations that I talked to, the Lovely Ladies of Phi Nu Kappa, Inc. were the most inviting. They exhibited a great passion for sisterhood, and servicing the community.
How have you grown within the organization?
I have grown, not only within the organization, but also within myself. To put my trust & comfort in women was something that I’ve always desired, but never thought that it could be possible. I have grown within the organization by learning that it takes a team to get the job done, as one woman cannot do it alone.
Which organizational event would you consider most enjoyable?
Besides my own crossing, I have yet to attend an organizational event. I am looking forward to the Winter Ball, and finally meeting Phamily outside of my Region.
What is your favorite Sorority “catch phrase”?
“Lean Into Your Discomfort”
In your own words, encourage a young woman towards interest into Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc.
“If you’re looking for an organization that is focused on uplifting each other, as well as the community, then Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc. may be for you. We strive for sisterhood and togetherness, which no one else can even come close to compare.”

We, the ladies of this Great Sisterhood take pride in shining the Spotlight on Soror Precious ePHervEssence Clark, as she truly embodies the “Essence of Feminism” and is a True Kappa woman!!!
How did you find out about Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc.?
In 2009 I was living in Birmingham Alabama and at a low point in my life. I had lost my job of five years and was spiralling into a depression. Upon a conversation with a friend I was encouraged to research sororities. Upon my research I found several that peaked my interest, but Soror James put a face to Phi Nu Kappa Sorority for me. At that point she became one of my best friends. She introduced me to the organization and walked me through the process of becoming a successful soror in this illustrious organization.
How have you grown within the organization?
Phi Nu Kappa has taught me how to be a better wife, mother, soror and friend. I have a crippling fear of public speaking and a sort of social awkwardness that I have hidden for years. During my time here with Phi Nu Kappa I have been able to overcome both of those. I have made friends and lifelong acquaintances with individuals that I would have never spoken with without this organization. During on of our Conclaves, I had the frightening opportunity to host our fashion show and scholarship pageant. I was scared to death, but my co-host and sorors were encouraging. They walked me through it and I have since been able to become a great teacher and trainer of other adults. When I began with Phi Nu Kappa Sorority I was a young lady; now I am a grown married woman with a passion for speaking and getting to know others.
Which organizational event would you consider most enjoyable?
One of my most enjoyable events would have had to have been my initial introduction to many of the sorors in 2009. I was not a member simply an interest. The ladies were friendly, loving and warm. I had never been around so many like minded women in a positive space. We fellowshipped, ate, and really got to know each other. It was outstanding. The Phi Nu Kappa ladies at the time had no clue who I was and that was irrelevant. They embraced me, and it was that moment that I had to become a part of this wonderful organization.
What is your favorite Sorority “catch phrase”?
“We are often imitated, but never duplicated!” “Imitation is the biggest form of flattery!”
In your own words, encourage a young woman towards interest into Phi Nu Kappa Sorority, Inc.
To any young lady reading this, please know that I have been in this organization for 8 years. I have had relationships come and go and people in my personal life leave for no reason. The one thing that has been a constant for me has been my sorors in Phi Nu Kappa. I am not the most social person, and these ladies understand that. If you are looking for a place to help you grow and become a part of an organization that will allow you to be yourself this is the organization for you. We are an amazing group of women who will love you for where and who you are and allow you to bring all of your skills and talents with you. Get to know us and we will in turn help you to become the best you! Fill out the interest app and see for yourself.

We sat down in an interview with Soror D. White, of Omicron Chapter, and found her delightful when asked the following questions:
What are some of your chapter/colony/MAL Initiatives?
"Omicron never actually sat down and said this is our initiative, but we do have strong passions. One being helping those less fortunate and in need of food & clothing as well as shelter. Some would called them homeless we have grown accustom to calling them neighbors without addresses. To witness some of the most meniscal things we take for granted mean the world to someone else gives us joy and forces us to reflect on our daily blessings we take for granted."
What community do you serve and how do you serve the community?
" How do you serve this community? We serve the community as a whole, we have partnered with North Jersey Pride, Hudson Pride , Newark Pride , The Warming Stations , Greater Episcopal Church, Assisted in the Act like a Lady , Think Like a Boss tour, Toys for Tots, Paction. Where ever there is a need Omicron hears the call and is always there to give a helping hand."
What are some of your chapter/colony/MAL activities that promote Sisterhood?
"With Sisterhood it is an evolutionary progress. There is no clear cut answer, but we get together for service, dinners, wedding preparations, movings, job promotions, venting sessions. We keep lines of communication top priority. We realize that although we may not always agree on different items, no one can invalidate another’s feelings. We try to stay true to the notion that the pledge we took is bigger than any one persons."
How does your chapter/colony/MAL contribute to Scholarship?
"One of the things Omicron is working on is giving 300.00 to a Senior that is the most improved and deserving of monetary donation to be used for College Applications. Second Part of this is to assist a child who is less fortunate and in need of support with 250.00 towards supplies or items needed to assist them in school. This is in the works and we are using the school that Soror Curet- Soto & Soror Chatman- Baldwin work at as a trial run. We did suscessfully complete some fundraising to start us on our journey."
What service to the community would your chapter/colony/MAL state was the most enjoyable?
"We enjoy all the service we do so it’s very hard to narrow it down to just one. When you enjoy what you do you find joy in everything."
Name one goal your chapter/colony/MAL hopes to accomplish in the upcoming year.
"I’d like to see us more involved with the Chamber of Commerce and working with other organizations on a larger scale of projects and gain more visibility. I would like us to sponsor more events especially for the youth ."

Omicron was founded by an “Expudged Member” Du-E-Wa King in 2005, however was reactivated by myself and IgNite in 2012. IgNite & myself like toconsider ourselves the Re-activating founders because we can’t ever forget our History, Good, Bad or indifferent it was necessary for the creation of Omicron Chapter as a whole ultimately. “You can’t go forward until you know where you came from “this knowledge of self was very important to me especially in the development of Omicron. As a neo you have all these questions, you are so hyped and want to take on the world but you need a steadfast foundation and a strong support system. fortunately Omicron has both.
