The Caribbean Club
Jodaliza Feliz is a civil engineering student and the founder of the Caribbean Club at the University of Maine; which was founded in 2014. Jodaliza was born from two Dominican parents and grew up in the Bronx, New York; where she was surrounded by many ethnicities including a Dominican community. When she arrived at the University of Maine she noticed the lack of diversity; this is where the idea of starting a Caribbean club was brought to her attention. So she did just that; she kept the club going strong and planted the group’s roots in the ground by becoming the president for a year and a half. Now she has noticed the change on campus and she is proud to say that she brought her Caribbean flavor to the university, and she is proud to see the club grow and flourish.
