[Y STORIES] Miss V: "A Home Away From Home"

When international graduate student Aurora Villacorta had her first interaction with the University YMCA, she had no idea the relationship would last decades. From student leader to dance instructor, the University YMCA has become a home away from home for Miss V for nearly fifty years.  Watch the video:     

This video is a part of the YMCA's celebration of 140 years of accomplishment in its mission to "challenge and nurture the mind and spirit of individuals and communities to develop and practice ethical principles and responsible leadership for social justice and the integrity of our natural world."

As part of this celebration, we would like to acknowledge stories of University YMCA alumni in order to commemorate our lasting legacy. We would love to hear your Y story, because we believe that the power of storytelling is when people say "me too."
