My involvement in extracurricular involvement is probably the most interest aspect of my life, so slip on some ballet shoes, and join me at the sabor Latino dance team practice. I have been a member of this dance team at UF since the summer of 2004, and on the serving on the team's executive board as its treasurer since Spring of 2005. We are the Hispanic Student Association's official dance team and have performed at various shows, including Gator Growl, the VISA International Month Talent Show, the Hispanic Heritage Month Talent Show, Soul Fest and Gator Mania. We perform typical dances from the various Latin countries, as well as more modern dances, such as hip-hop and jazz. We practice three hours a night when we have a performance coming up, so, you may want to get some icy-hot to soothe your sore muscles after practice.
Aside from being a full-time student and dancer, I also serve on the cabinet of the Hispanic Student Association. As a cabinet member, my duties include helping put on all programming and special events for the Hispanic Student Association, such as Resume Building workshops, participating in community service events, such as the Dare-to-Care 5K Run attending all general body and weekly cabinet meetings.

If you thought your fun and work was over, think again, because I also serve on the executive board of the Cuban-American Student Association. We are an organization that also puts on events to promote the unity of the Cuban culture on the UF campus. Like the Hispanic Stident Association, we host events that include a variety of academic and social activities, as well as community service events. As an e-board member of the Cuban-American Student Association, I must also atten all general body meetings and e-board meetings.
Going to school full-time, working part-time and being a leader in three organizations can get exhausting, but my experiences in all of my student organizations have helped me to develop more social skills and public speaking skills, become more organized, responsible and best of all learn how to master the art of time managament.
