Carolina de Armas

Carolina is a Senior from Ponce, Puerto Rico who is currently pursuing an English major with minors in Journalism and Creative Writing. This is her fourth year on the team and first year serving as captain. Her favorite Fuego memory is “the beginning of every Sunday practice; when everybody’s hair is a mess, eyes are half shut, and stomachs are growling. At those 12:00 pm practices, we spend almost half an hour just laying on the dance studio floor eating home-fries, bagels, and sipping coffee from Dunkin, laughing at each-others stories from the night before or from the night before that. These are the days when I feel most at home.”

Etienne Scaccino

Etienne is a senior from San Juan, Puerto Rico who is pursuing a pre-med track through a Sociology major in the Morrissey College of Arts and Sciences. This is his fourth year on the team and first year as captain.
