Love and Honor Story Project Honors Erin Little

Erin LittleDecember’s Love and Honor Story Project recipient, senior Erin Little, exemplifies the qualities a leader should possess. Double majoring in math and statistics and minoring in social justice, Little hopes to combine the knowledge she's gained from all three areas to make a difference in the world. 

As someone who strives to make her community a better place, Little believes that all people should be treated with dignity and respect. She not only believes this but lives by it as well. As an example of her actions mirroring her words, Little recently led the March on Miami, a protest demonstrating support for survivors of sexual and interpersonal violence on campus.

Little's college career so far can be summed up by three words: acts of service - whether it be for organizations or her friends. She frequently volunteers at Cincinnati Works, a nonprofit organization that provides life coaching and seeks to help those pursuing careers find a job and retain it. She also contributes her time at the Ronald McDonald House through her sorority Alpha Delta Pi. Little's friends, who she says are a constant source of inspiration, have described her as one of the most reliable people they know. Despite her busy schedule, Little is always there to give a ride, cook a meal or help tutor someone when they're struggling.

Little does not consider herself a traditional leader and describes herself as quiet but passionate. While public speaking isn't her favorite leadership skill, she works tirelessly behind the scenes to bring about effective change in campus groups, such as Alpha Delta Pi, where she boosts morale and influence by developing close connections with general members. 

Erin Little embodies what it means to live by the Code of Love and Honor through her dedication to causes she is passionate about, her friends, and others around her. No matter what challenges she faces at Miami and after, she will always find creative solutions to advocate for and ways to lead.
