We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Monique McMiller and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dr. Monique, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
In starting Sigma Tau Sigma Sorority, Incorporated my thoughts were that women needed a “Safe Place” to be appreciated in Sisterhood without judgment and ridicule because they were choosing to live a “Christian lifestyle. My second, thought was of redefining the definition of Sisterhood based on true respect, well-being and love.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Sigma Tau Sigma Sorority. Incorporated was established in 2017. What sets us apart is the way we operate in a Christian Greek Sorority sector. We Love God, but We love Sisterhood in its pure form. We are not drama or catty and we don’t haze or tolerate it. We don’t charge outrageous fees. We give back to our communities. In the year of COVID-19 2020 we donated more than 17,000 hours to communities as an organization with charitable donations of more than $10,000. Now take in mind we are less than 200 women. We are recipients of more than one award for Organization of the Year. We we sponsor a scholarship Gala every year awarding a deserving lady attending college. We sponsor single mothers. We sponsor food programs and we sponsor prom dress give aways. We sponsor Breast Cancer awareness programs; Suicide Prevention programs and Domestic Violence programs just to name a few of our initiatives. Launching our organization wasn’t easy. We faced public scrutiny and judgemental attitudes’, but we overcame and overcome with prayer and consistency. The organization understands “To whom much is given much more is required.” We stand on Luke 6:38. The lessons I learned along the way: One must be determined and persevere. One must allow the Creator to guide and lead. One must love in the purest form despite the difficulties. One must stay the course and be transparent. One must humble herself or himself in order to lead others. One must be willing to make the tough decisions when needed. One must have a circle of strength. I want the World 🌎 to know about Sigma Tau Sigma Sorority,Incorporated is that we are not perfect, but we work relentlessly to Equip, Empower, Educate and Elevate Women through the remarkable gift of Sisterhood. 2017sts.com Shalom and Torah CEO and Founder Dr. Monique McMiller
