Hello Everyone,

I was born in West Virginia - my parents are Colombian and Cuban (Statistically the two largest expat groups in Florida). As a child, I lived in Colombia where I experienced the most beautiful, and unforgettable time of my life. In fact, I avoid staying in the states to celebrate a Christmas or New Year because nothing compares to the cultural experiences that are celebrated in Colombia. I have taken many friends from other nationalities to experience many of the festivals like: La feria de las flores, Carnaval de Barranquilla, and Feria de Cali. Did they want to come back? NO! Find out why by Joining this group, Lets Share, grow as a community, and be friends!

Counting on your support and cooperation my Goals as organizer are the following:

  • Keep our roots alive!
  • Encourage anyone of any nationality to join our Colombians in South Florida group. This helps increase membership and will give us opportunities to share with others what Colombia is all about. Just Imagine each one of us as ambassadors of Colombia, promoting our Country and ensuring that everyone knows we are a beautiful country in South America and NOT a sports brand... Colombia vs. Columbia LOL PET PEEVE!
  • Host a variety of events where we can network at least once a month and creates friendships, opportunities and experiences that we will never forget.

When joining, please introduce yourself and share this group with your network and let the activities begin! I will need all the help I can get , don’t sit there, get involved, step up and become and organizer let’s make this a success!

Hola Amigos,

Nací en West Virginia y mis padres son de nacionalidad Colombiana y Cubana (los dos grupos de inmigrantes lider en el sur de la Florida) Me crié en Colombia y vivi la mejor infancia - y disfrute de las mejores experiencias. Todavía no he conocido el primer Colombiano que le guste pasar Navidad en Estados Unidos... Todos sabemos que es incomparable!!!

Mis objetivos como organizador son:

  • Mantener la chispa de viva de nuestra Cultura y compartirla con cualquier persona de cualquier nacionalidad, por ese motivo los invito a que compartan este grupo con cualquier persona! Vamos a ser embajadores de nuestra cultura y a compartirla, a crecer profesionalmente y hacer amistades.
  • Crear un evento una ves al mes donde podamos lograr este objetivo.

Cuando decidas inscribirte al grupo, por favor cuéntanos un poquito de ti, A la ves necesito tu colaboración para lograr estos objetivos - si te animas y quieres ser un organizador, pues BIEN VENIDO amigo!
