From Camper to Sister

Sometimes, a woman is living truly even before she becomes a Delta Zeta. Katelyn Stephens, Iota Upsilon-California State/Fullerton. was diagnosed in middle school with a chronic illness and, during that time, found support from The Painted Turtle. The summer she attended camp allowed her to meet her closest friends and helped her cope with her illness. Fast forward to her freshman year in college, and during recruitment she met Delta Zeta and learned that The Painted Turtle was the national service project. “Before all my sisters met me, they were changing my life, and they didn’t even know it. They were supporting me by sending me to camp for free. They are the ones that gave me my best friend, and that is something I’m going to be forever grateful for,” shares Katelyn.
