Sister Spotlight + Why ADPi
Peyton Roach, Alpha Class ‘16
Hey y’all! My name is Peyton, and I’m a Communications major from Greenville, South Carolina. My blood without a doubt runs orange, from growing up a Clemson fan my entire life! This past year has been full of changes and I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to do with my future. Country music is a huge passion of mine and I am a country music enthusiast so I thought, why not try to pursue it as a career? I have had the great opportunity to make connections with some country artists that in return helped me land an internship in Nashville this summer for Essential Broadcast Media. EBM is a publicist and marketing company for country music artists. With this awesome opportunity, I have been able to work in the city of country music, with some of country radio’s stars -- a true dream come true!
I could always tell there was something different about these Clemson ADPi girls I knew from home, and it wasn’t until I got to go through Recruitment that I understood what it was. It all came down to how ADPi holds itself to a different standard than most other sororities.
This was clear to me before I was even a student at Clemson which speaks volumes about our chapter. Whenever anyone mentioned ADPi they always spoke so highly of the girls and that is something I wanted to be apart of.
My second semester of freshman year is when I found my best friends on our first spring break trip together. Looking back, we have all shared the best of memories together including TWO National Championships-- Go Tigers! My group of friends are not only beautiful inside and out, insanely smart, and the funniest people, but they push me to be better and support me at everything I want to pursue. I could go for an entire summer without seeing them and we could pick up right where we left off once the school year rolls back around. That is what sisterhood and true friendship is to me. No matter how busy we are, or how many miles we are apart, we will always find our way back to each other. Overall, ADPi has shaped me as a person through the lifelong relationships I have made and the countless opportunities it has given me. Not only that, but it has helped me to be proud of the person I am and the person I aspire to be!
