Aaliyah Downard-Archibald is one of our newest members, having just joined the Lambda Rho Chapter at Illinois State University in the fall of 2020, but truly represents the very best of Delta Zeta in all she has accomplished. Aaliyah’s chapter sisters were overwhelmed with pride as they watched her crowned the 2021 USA National Miss Illinois Teen. “The support I receive from my sisters is amazing. In high school, I was bullied, always being picked on for being different, and now because of Delta Zeta I know that I’m accepted for who I am. I am also our chapter’s first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Chair,” shares Aaliyah.
