Amanda Arredondo Cook, California State/Northridge - Pi Gamma, is a dedicated Delta Zeta alumna. "I love being a Delta Zeta," she said. She was initiated into the Pi Gamma Chapter at California State University-Northridge in 20015. Nursing is her profession.
"Delta Zeta has given me so many things, from leadership skills to countless dance parties and laughter," Amanda continued, "but it has also kept its promise to be there no matter what challenges I face."
Amanda is a Gold Star wife. Her husband died while serving our country. "During the very hard and dark times since his passing, many of my sisters came to my rescue and have helped me through a devastating loss. They continue to be there for everything," she said.
Amanda is thankful to have such amazing strong women in her corner at all times. "Delta Zeta means continued love and support," she explained. "I know I will always have a sister to call when I need some guidance or just to laugh, and I know that wherever my life takes me, there will be Delta Zetas to connect with and build a strong, lasting foundation."
"Sixteen Candles" is Amanda's favorite movie. She loves country music, so any country song pleases her, but Carrie Underwood is her "absolute favorite" artist. Her dream vacation would be traveling to see all of Europe. "There are so many beautiful places I want to see," she says.
Amanda is a member of the Phoenix Valley Alumnae Chapter, who shared this story with The LAMP.
