Alumna Angelica "Moreâ€ Aguilera organized former AIESECers from throughout South Florida to gather for a fun-in-the-sun weekend of old and new friends over the weekend of August 5th-7th. Angelica, who served as a member of AIESEC Mexico in 1987 and currently resides in Boca Raton, FL, opened her home and hometown for a weekend that encompassed dinner on the streets of South Beach and a pool party/BBQ at her home. More than 80 alumni gathered over the course of the weekend with some traveling in from as far as Mexico to reunite with friends from days of old. Enrique Chauca, former president of AIESEC Peru and supporter of AIESEC Life, attended the event and when asked why he thinks alumni traveled from so far to attend the event he answered, "to keep the passion alive!â€. He continued, saying, "I have found out that people participate as alumni because they want to keep having fun, meeting AIESEC alumni and meeting people with open minds all over the worldâ€.
