Mavungu (Alba) Kambu, Ottawa, was initiated in 2014, and during her time in the chapter, she served as the vice president of finance. After graduating with a degree in electrical engineering, Alba now works as a technical consultant and continues to give back to Canada Delta Chapter by serving as the operations advisor.
How did you first hear about volunteering for Tri Delta, and what made you decide to volunteer?
Shortly after circling out in March 2017, our alumna advisor (AA) at the time mentioned about how she was looking for more volunteers to look over different areas of the collegiate chapter and to gather more alumnae involvement through volunteering. Although I was nervous to join because I just went through Circle Degree at the time, I went into this thinking that it would be an insightful experience to go through and to learn new things.
What do you get most out of volunteering?
Volunteering for Tri Delta has allowed me to build connections with other volunteers and members that I would not have had the chance to meet otherwise. As someone who started volunteering right after Circle Degree, it was another way to continue my personal growth and development and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to begin my volunteer experience so early. It has also encouraged me to stay up to date with all the amazing initiatives that Tri Delta has in store.
What has been the most rewarding experience?
Overall, the most rewarding experience so far as a collegiate advisor is seeing the collegiate members grow throughout their time in the chapter and seeing them graduate as strong and passionate young women. Seeing it firsthand and knowing that I can be a part of their growth and development is a reward in and of itself.
