  • That time I… auditioned for ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ | The Current
    in 35 degree weather until the staff finally let us in From there we grabbed our audition numbers and filed into groups of our represented dance styles I was categorized as a contemporary dancer After the organization of our groups we were called onto the stage in groups of ten At our first audition we had to improvise to the given music one by one When the music started in my group I was number six in the line to perform Before I knew it I was the next to go I danced in a state of fog not knowing how I was doing I didn t know if my pirouette was decent if that McDonald s breakfast burrito that I ate was showing or if I had showed enough technique After the 10th person finished dancing we were lined up The British director of the show Jeff was walking down the line making funny remarks and playing with people s emotions Jeff came to me looked at me and remarked in his British accent Number six you were very emotional Then he proceeded to the next person handing that person a ticket but not me In a state of confusion I just wanted to go home so I left the stage in despair with the others who did not receive a ticket Just as I was walking out I heard that same lovely British voice say Number six please come receive your yellow slip From there I went through the pre screening adventures of interviews back shots funny shots and dancing shots After that day I had to come back again to do another round of improvisation After passing that round I was chosen to perform my solo While waiting to perform one of the directors from the show took me in for an interview with my brother During that interview I could not stop talking about how much my brother meant to me and how he was the reason I started dancing When he was in middle school he was bullied for being a male dancer but he never let that stop him He continued to dance and was even a dancer for Ricky Martin and was casted in Step Up 3D and Step Up Revolution When it was time to perform my solo I hugged my family and went to the front of the stage Little did I know the judges also had to interview me I was asked questions about my nickname Pork Pork and who my brother was At many times throughout the conversation I was an awkward penguin answering in strange tones and then waddling to the starting position of my solo During my solo I went to my happy place where I had no longer felt the pressure of answering questions I kept dancing until my song cut off at around the 2 minute mark I waddled back up to the mic and waited for the reactions and commentary from the judges Jenna

  • Internships 101 | The Current
    you should do an informational interview so that you can learn more about the position of interest This does two things for you give you an idea of a day in the life of this person and help you decide if that is something that interests you enough to do Informational interviews help save you from wasting your time because a lot of the times you get an internship and then when it comes down to the actual work it s not what you thought you would be doing But that could have been avoided by just finding out more beforehand Where should students look for internships There are a lot of unverified internship sites like Career Builder and Monster However sources I would recommend are Career Shark Internships com and LinkedIn Also students can try going to their school s career fairs because many times they have great internship opportunities Outside of the reactive opportunity of clicking and applying students shouldn t be afraid to be proactive I highly recommend sharing your career interests with your faculty members They are your stakeholders at some point in time they were sitting exactly where you are They can give you advice and some may even tell you what steps they took to get to where they are right now Plus you never know what connections they have and what they will be able to help you with until you take the initiative to speak to them You should also make it a point to meet with your career adviser because we do our best to connect students with employers I always say a hit list isn t just for assassins Make it your point to go out and network Figure out what the top companies are or types of experiences you would like to obtain and reach for them Cross those things off the list and create an avenue for yourself Should students shy away from internships that are just for personal interest Definitely not I strongly believe that student s should always pursue their passions So yeah I get it it s not apples to apples to your projected career path but you never know what skills and experiences will be helpful in the long run There are so many different opportunities that can not only satisfy your personal interests but will also help you build strong writing communication and relationship skills that are greatly needed in the workforce Skill sets are transferable You can have a great product but at the end of the day it s about how you package and sell a product that will convince someone to buy it So yeah you took an internship that is not completely connected to your work field but that brings diversity to your skill sets And all you have to do is say How can I apply this What is NSU s process for internships The first thing students should do is meet with their academic advisers especially if

  • Defeat the heat, don’t skip a beat | The Current
    these tips like they re fitness treats Pick the right time of day Summer days are longer and hotter than other days of the year with the hottest part of the day being between 11 a m and 3 p m Try to go early in the morning or late at night to avoid extreme heat The hotter it is the more you ll sweat and the faster you ll get dehydrated Water isn t just for swimming Swimming in the ocean or at the pool is great for fun but drinking fresh water is great for health Working out in hot weather means you ll get dehydrated a lost faster than usual so in order to have effective workouts and avoid injury drink more water than you usually would Drink a glass or two before your workout take a bottle of water during your workout and stay hydrated afterward Less is more Don t weigh yourself down with heavy dark colored clothing Wear light colored loose tank tops or T shirts and shorts or capris made of dri fit material They will make your workouts much more comfortable and absorb any sweat so your clothes don t weigh you down Choose the path less traveled Try to find trails and areas that are lined with trees or other forms of shade Shady areas can be more than 10 degrees cooler than open areas which will make your workout a lot cooler and reduce your chances of getting sunburned and dehydrated Protect your skin and eyes Don t forget to use sweat resistant sunblock during your summer workouts While it s always nice to have a tan running the risk of skin cancer is no joke According to WebMD an SPF of 45 blocks approximately 98 percent of the sun s rays and if you re going to spend a lot of time working out outside this summer the more rays you can block the better Make sure to get a good pair of athletic sunglasses as well as you don t want to damage your vision from running toward the sunrise or sunset every day Develop a relationship with the weatherman or woman Make sure to check the weather forecast before you head outside to start your fitness regimen One of the side effects of spending the summer in Florida is never knowing when a rain storm will hit Be prepared before heading out especially if you re going far from your home The more prepared you are before the workout the less you ll have to stress during the workout Listen to your body Sometimes it is just too hot outside If you feel dizzy nauseous or just like something may be off don t push through it Exercising in the heat can be dangerous if you don t pay attention to your body s warnings It s OK to take a day or two to relax and rehydrate if need be Summer is not the time to

  • In Our Own Words: Diagnosing autism lags in some communities | The Current
    communities to support them Nowhere do we see more diversity than on the autism spectrum People on the spectrum exhibit a wide range of symptoms in the social communication behavioral and cognitive areas Oftentimes individuals who are socially oriented and like to be with people are not diagnosed because they don t fit our older perceptions of what autism is It is critically important for people with autism to be identified as early as possible to ensure that they receive the most appropriate and intensive treatment possible for this challenging disorder Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention continues to use the prevalence rate of 1 in 68 a study this year reported 1 in 45 people have autism Now almost everyone knows someone who is affected by autism whether it is a neighbor co worker or family member It is likely that every teacher has had a student with autism Although we have made progress identifying people with autism at younger ages there is still a disparity between when Hispanic and black children are identified and when white children are identified We must close that gap As part of the university s Realizing Potential philanthropic campaign the Taft Foundation recently awarded a grant to the Unicorn Children s Foundation Clinic at NSU s Mailman Segal Center It provides training throughout our community in recognizing red flags for autism This will target those who work with young children including child care centers medical personnel and parents who are concerned about their children s development It will also allow NSU to provide parent and professional training to build knowledge and skills about effective interventions for this disorder NSU s Starting Right program for 18 to 36 month olds provides an intensive parent training child intervention program for children who are at risk for suspected of having autism or already diagnosed with this disorder A recent research study carried out by the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden found that there is a high rate of premature mortality in individuals with autism spectrum disorder due to a variety of co occurring medical conditions including intellectual disability mental health disorders and seizures This study found that individuals with autism had a life expectancy 16 years below the average For individuals who were lower functioning with autism seizures were a primary cause of death For those who were higher functioning suicide was more commonly the cause As NSU prepares to open our Center for Collaborative Research this fall we are proud to be partnering with this highly respected research organization and know that the exciting possibilities this partnership brings to NSU will enhance our current educational clinical academic and research activities The more we learn about autism the more we recognize that we need to learn more The more people whom autism affects the more we see that we need to find ways to include those with this disorder in our post secondary educational institutions as well as provide employment opportunities for these often highly
