Another of our favorite inspirational sorority women, politician and diplomat Condoleezza Rice is a spectacular role model for women everywhere. An Alpha Chi Omega at the University of Denver, this powerhouse political leader sets a great example through her leadership and legacy.
Born an only child in Birmingham, Alabama, Rice picked up a number of activities at a young age. Among them was learning to play the piano, which she still practices magnificently as evident below in her beautiful rendition of “Amazing Grace.”
Rice has had a noteworthy career both in education and politics, beginning with her appointment as provost of Stanford University in 1993. She then began her career in politics, most notably as the National Security Advisor in 2001 and the Secretary of State in 2004. Better yet, she was the first black woman to be appointed to each of these distinguished positions!
After her term as Secretary of State in 2009, Rice returned to Stanford as a professor and director of the school’s Global Center for Business and the Economy.
Rice has been an advocate for women’s empowerment, joining the “Ban Bossy” campaign, focused on empowering young women to be confident leaders. How awesome is that!
She has also been featured in TIME’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people a whopping four times, and was one of the first two women to be admitted to a prestigious, historically all-male golf club. Give yourself a round of applause Condoleezza, you deserve it!
We love this remarkable role model for sorority women everywhere! You go Condoleezza!
