Emily “Na’ima” Mennenga
Emily Mennenga has rejoined the National Board for her second term. After graduating from our Eta Chapter at Marquette University in 2014, she joined the board as the Midwest Regional Advisor and has now decided to switch gears. Emily is currently our Chief Tribunal, a member of the National Executive Board who oversees our Judicial Board and presides over all meetings, hearings and investigations. Although it is her responsibility to keep us in line, do not be afraid if her name pops up in your inbox. She has been a strong voice and driving leader since her crossing date and you can be sure that she makes every move with the best interest of our organization and our members at heart. We are happy to have Emily back again!
Here’s what you should know about Emily:
1.) What are you most excited about for this term?
I’m excited about the opportunity to see the sorority in a different aspect. Being in E-Board gives me a whole new light.
2.) What are your goals for your position?
One big goal is to education. I want to make sure we focus on what we as sisters have to gain as being members of this beautiful sorority.
3.) What was your favorite time or memory from being an active?
My favorite time was every time I initiated a new line. Knowing that all of our hard work paid off and bringing in brand new members into this beautiful org I call family.
4.) What do you most enjoy about your city?
It took me a long time to find a home in Milwaukee. I owe a lot of that to becoming a member of DXP. I love that Milwaukee isn’t really that big of a city. Being a farm kid it took some adjusting.
5.) Any advice for our current active sisters?
We are a multicultural sorority. We have our highs and our lows but at the end of the day we are a family. Life can get hard, but you always have your sisters to depend on.
6.) What do you enjoy outside of work and the sorority?
I am a spoken word artist. I write and perform my own original poetry. Ask me about it! I also paint when I get a the feeling to do it. I sing even though I can’t, but you’ll never get me to stop.
7.) In closing, any other personal things you want to share?
I’m a single fur-mom of two beautiful babies. You’ll see more pictures of them than you do of me. I’m also a gamer nerd and my K/D ratio is pretty BA. (I have a PS4 for those interested in adding me lol)
