Transcript ows Students of Different Cultures Work Together to Promote Diversity at UH DIVERSE DIVAS CEO members take a break from a meeting.

Photo Courtesy of CEO ENTER THE DRAGON The Vietnamese Student Association, a member of CEO, perform a lion dance. Photo hy Danny Nguyen Welcome to Unity Day, a day to emphasize cultural differences, have fun and above all, learn. From the contagious Caribbean rhythms of mambo and salsa to Brazil's capoeira's martial arts-like dance and the beauty of India's hypnotic classical music. From vegetable egg rolls, to quesadillas, to shish kebab. From high-heeled dancers and patent shoes to bare feet performers. "One, two, one, two," instructs Puerto Rican Jorge Mercado to students from the audience who have jumped from their seats to give meringue - another typical Caribbean dance - a try. "Enjoy the music! Don't be shy! I'll show you how to do it," he cries at the top of his voice. While he goes on showing his one, two step-pattern, more and more people have become enthusiastic. Even the capoeira dancers are now part of the crowd. In the end, everyone in the room ends joining Mercado and three dancing partners: two females from Columbia and a male from Guatemala. Unity Day is only one of the many cross-cultural events that the Council of Ethnic Organizations conducts each year to celebrate diversity. The CEO is a student-run organization established in 1972 that sponsors and co- sponsors programs to bridge gaps among the campus' multicultural population. It comprises four main umbrella groups: the Black Student Union, the Chinese Students' Association, the Hispanic Students' Association and the International Students' Association. Each of these is subdivided in approximately 60 other professional, religious and social ethnic groups. Director Allegra Brimmer joined the organization in 1996. She declares herself passionate about CEO's commitment to bringing people together and sharing different custom's and traditions. "Many people just find it hard to venture out and interact with peers with different backgrounds. That is why we want our programs to be fun, so that we can motivate people." said Brimmer. • by Carolina Amengual DIVERSITY DINNER The diverse members of CEO come together for a special dinner.
