#ptkawarenessweek
Proud PTK member here and avid tech and computer enthusiast. I am a nontraditional student and Coming from the trades where I have worked previously for 18 years, I decided I needed to challenge myself in new ways and decided I would try out our local community college. I started as a fine art major because I love to paint, and I once did some word working as well so I was naturally creative, and I just figured it was a good fit. But after a semester and a half I landed a work study in the computer lab and that reminded me of my passion for tech as a youth and I really had an epiphany if you will that art though great wasnโ€™t my true calling, my true calling is in software. So, where does PTK fit in all this you ask? Well smack dab in the middle. I had a drive not only to better myself but a drive to give back to those around me in any way I could. I found the ideals and values of the PTK stood for everything I stood for as well. It was something I could push to achieve that was bigger than myself, bigger then my ideas or what my own beliefs stood the PTK stood for everyone's own dynamic systems and it helped support us on our journeys and said to us pretty much, if we do good and make the effort a real one, if we just give back one fraction of that energy into the pot of humanity so to speak then we are making a difference. I like to believe itโ€™s not the differences that separate us but the differences that bring us all together and thatโ€™s what the PTK exemplifies and to me how could I not want to be a part of all that? I truly feel like I a part of something great and that is what pushes us onward to self-greatness and self-love, I love You PTK, you are my family now! Follow my journey and learn more about my if you want at ryanzurrin.com which was a final project webpage I started building last semester as a personal portfolio, kind of. thanks everyone.

Today, Xi Alpha, Berkshire Community Collegeโ€™s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society chapter hosted a diversity, inclusion and equity round table discussion. This was an enlightening conversation for those who attended. We left acknowledging just how much work needs to be done to bring our world to a place of inclusion and equity. We also left a bit feeling more connected to each other. @phithetakappa #PTKInclusionDay #diversity #inclusion #equity #ptk
