Summer 2021

Gamma Phi Beta’s Executive Director Megan Wick (Washington State) says in her opening letter, “I see a fresh and new beginning for our sisterhood.” From International Headquarters reopening its doors to new members and volunteers joining our workforce and (fingers crossed) in-person Convention next year, great things are happening for Gamma Phi Beta. There are also a ton of great things within this issue of The Crescent. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?

Winter 2021

It’s a new year (thank goodness), and we have a brand-new issue of The Crescent for you! Before we erase 2020 from our minds entirely, let’s not forget just how resilient we were, both as individuals and as a sisterhood. As Foundation Chairwoman Angie Jordan Dimit (Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) states in her letter, “I believe this past year, with all its challenges, presented us with opportunities to reflect upon what it means to be True and Constant. I observed so much compassion and witnessed the life-changing impact of sisters helping sisters through the gifts of self, service and support.” We share those stories of love, service, support and empowerment in this issue.

Fall 2020

Can you believe this is the last issue of 2020? We can’t either. We continue to amplify stories of our sisterhood in The Crescent, starting with Alice Hu (Boston), our cover star, who talks about launching her holistic health business, Woo Woo Company. Then there’s Alexis Tinsley (Central Florida), Dani O’Neill (Wittenberg), Destinee’ Rule (Oakland) and Belonging and Inclusion Committee Chairwoman Rachel Christine (Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi), the incredible members who comprise our Confident Women feature. There are many more impactful stories within this issue, but we’ll let you discover them yourself. We’ll see you in 2021, which is when we’ll resume printing The Crescent
