"Be Realistic, Demand the Impossible" - Historian Robert Bozzanco
The realization of a dream came about when Ana Elsy Reyes and Erika Ontiveros pondered upon an intrinsic, yet farfetched idea of initiating a sorority at California State University, Dominguez Hills unlike any other presently on campus. This idea was born on February 2, 2002 and continued to pick up steam with the expiration of time. This idea was one of great motivation and persuasion as it was quickly passed on to others with an epidemic-like intensity. Thus, Prospects Exploring New Greek Unity In New Sisterhood (PENGUINS) became an ad-hoc committee composed of ten talented and gregarious young ladies.
The steps toward sisterhood were arduous yet very rewarding. Hard times tested our faith and we always prevailed. The loss of women stalled our process but "things happen for a reason." New women came around that brought their individual talents to something worth a lifetime.
The ladies were now an official colony, the first west of the Colorado River! Induction as an official colony took place February 2, 2003, and this also marked the beginning of the educational process that would commence on March 30, 2003. We were glad at the toil and strife we underwent for more than a year. Retrospectively, our toil was only a small sacrifice for something we will all keep in our hearts for the rest of our lives. We show our gratitude to our sisters, loved ones, and God for guiding us through this passage!
