Well what can I say about Diwali night @ Smith. My first memory was hearing Shweta saying: “Ana you are one of the dancers for Diwali night”. I just said “what??”, “I do not know anything about India or Indian music”. Nevertheless it has been one of the greater experiences since I arrived to school.
The International MBA Association team prepared such a fantastic event to celebrate an Indian tradition of the festival of the lights here in the US. I was part of the dancing team, which dedicate time an effort to rehearse and prepare traditional Indian dancing moves (like bollywood!!) to show the audience the richness of Indian culture.
That night we were able to watch a colorful fashion show, dancing routing, amazing singers and eat delicious food. That night the Smith community gets together and experiences not only the international diversity within the school but also the camaraderie that characterizes our School.
