For those of you who may be completely confused about what a “Big” or a “Little” is in simple English, please let me give you the synopsis. Greek life pairs an older member (starting their sophomore year if they choose to have a little) with a new member of that sorority or fraternity. This person is then considered your big sister or little sister. We usually shorten that into your “big” or “little” in order to make it easier. I am actually writing about my Big in this blog post of the “Diverse Friends” section because she’s a pretty rad human-being, and she’s shown me a lot about life. She is one of the most motivated people I have ever met, and I’m not sure how she can always be so positive even when most people would give up in certain situations that she’s been through.

I feared that she would be crazy… or rude… or loud and impolite. I thought she could be mean, or maybe she would hate me, and I’d feel bad in my own dorm. None of that happened. I didn’t even expect what happened.

I met Simran in 2016, somewhat only due to the fact that she was going to live with one of my best friends, Mia, who had been my first roomie in college. I had to meet the person that was taking over while I was off studying abroad instead of harassing Mia. I’m so beyond glad that Simran happened to be the new adventure in Mia’s life, because otherwise I would not have had the chance to meet such a lovely human.
