OYFA has done so much for me and I love the people, the connections, and the good times go hoos. There really isn't another organization like this that brings together such a diverse and friendly group of people. College can be tough sometimes and it's important to have a support system and friends you can trust. OYFA exudes this feeling of family and a level of welcomeness that had me hooked from the very beginning; it's now my turn to show every and anyone that no matter what your background is or how busy you are, there's always a place for you here.

This is my third time doing this bio and I have always had the same favorite OYFA memory: flashback to first year- it's past midnight and Barrio's the next day (or I guess later that day). It's been a long day of rehearsals and everyone is tired. Our fearless culture chairs want another runthrough and we comply (we have to, they're scary). First year modern is up and one by one we go through each of our dances: Tinikling, boys, partners, girls- then comes the everyone's dance. The song's House Party by Meek Mill. We're halfway through the choreo and the music shuts off. The speakers blown. We briefly look at each other. Do we keep going? "...HOUSE PARTY, PARTY!" All the upperclassmen start chanting the lyrics and we finish out the dance. One of the hypest moments of my life.
