The class I attend is Zumba with Annete from 6pm to 7pm. It's a great class, I started 3 months ago I've lost some weight I don't know exactly how much I don't weight myself but I know my clothes fit me much better now my muscles are more define now and I have more energy through out the day. My experience with Zumba has been what I expected I have a lot of fun with the music, Annete is very energetic she transmits that energy to us. An hour sometimes is not enough with all the fun we're having. I highly recommend this class specially for those women like myself who spends most of the day behind a computer.

I really enjoy coming to the Woman's Cultural center for the class that I take. Zumba class has made a big difference in my life because in the mornings when I feel like I will be "dragging" for the rest of the day I get ready and go to Zumba. It energizes me and gives me the strength to tackle the rest of the day. The atmosphere is pleasant and the room is very appropriate for the dancing class with enough restrooms . Also I have made many friends. For as long as I can, I will continue to attend the Woman's Cultural center.

I have always seen the woman's intercultural center but I never knew what it was or what its purpose was. My cousin and I heard about zumba taking place here and we decided to try it. Our first day here we felt really nervous but our instructor made us feel very welcomed and also made us feel comfortable. I have never been the type of person to exercise everyday but now I can honestly say that I love coming here because it doesn't feel like another day of exercising but of dancing and having fun doing it. I am still far from my goal but I am doing way better than what I was doing before zumba. I absolutely love it and I can see myself coming here for a very long time!

My girls were introduced to the center last summer. They enjoy going and learning art activities. My 14 year old took it upon her self to make mosaic crosses and boxes to give to family members and tin art for then as well. They are ready to go back this summer. My 9 year old loved the rumba classes and the jewelry making she also made gifts for her sisters. They have invited other friends to join them.

I come to the Center for help to gain my U.S. Citizenship. The center offers classes to help study for the exam and learn how to pass the Citizenship test so I can become a U.S. Citizen. It is hard but with the help of the center they make it easy and are always around to support me. I put my faith in the center and hope they will be around forever to help others just like me.

I participated in the Border Awareness Experience at the Women's Intercultural Center. It was truly a life changing experience. I went down to the border not really knowing what to expect. In all honesty, I thought I would only see one side of the immigration-border argument. However, the WIC did a terrific job of showing all aspects. Perhaps the best thing that I got from the trip was learning about the culture. Everyone was so proud of their heritage, and wanted a better future so badly. It was inspiring, and gives me hope that in the future the border area will less troubled by conflict.
