Dancehall Days

For the past three years I've been going to school in Miami and my overall experience has been wonderful. Coming from Los Angeles to Miami brought a lot of changes and adjustments. I met a lot of different people and made new friendships. Living in Miami gave me the opportunity to learn new things, different cultures, and places such as Jamaica, Haiti, Bahamas, Trinidad, and so much more. I can think back to the first time I went to a club and a party on campus.

I felt like I didn't belong or fit in because the dances were unfamiliar to me. I quickly fell in love with dancehall music and the variety of dances that went along with it. Even now, I practice and go home with stories to tell all my friends. I have one year left in Miami but this is certainly not the last of my dancehall days!
