NOV.18, 2016: 

Thank you so much IFC members!

After several months of planning, IFC members worked extra hard to make the International Festival happen. Rehearsal after rehearsal, members put their final touches on the special performances prepared exclusively for the event. Things such as making sure the fashion show walk were perfected, speeches were memorized, and dances were in sync.


“I would like to THANK all of you that came out to support. A special THANK YOU to all the participants, without you all the show would have been impossible. All the hard work everyone put in didn’t go unnoticed. I appreciate every effort from the bottom of my heart. We represented all the countries and our club very beautifully.”

~President, Preeti
