    Conrado's Bio:
    Born and raised in urban Madrid, lived in rural northern California and ended up in snowy suburban Minnesota. During the school year you'll find me firmly entrenched in a routine designed to develop my Psychology research skills, and during the summer you will probably not find me at all; in my free time, I enjoy going on trekking trips in the backcountry, adventuring through recondite countries and most importantly spending time with my family.

Black Tie Event

It happened. And it was an absolute success. A red carpet flanked by two trials of light led to a pair of rich black curtains. Upon crossing them, invitees entered a dimly lit room; all of the organizers (myself included) were standing either behind the lightly illuminated counter in front of the entrance, or ready to guide invitees to their seats. The ceiling was covered in white and silver balloons, and there were two separate groups of tables–both close to two of the four food stations, and separated from each other by a space that would be later used as the dance floor.

The night proceeded as follows: invitees were told that they were welcome to submit song recommendations, and write anonymous notes to their peers to be later read out loud. Then they grabbed a drink and socialized for about 20 minutes before then standing up by tables and orderly getting food. After a pleasant, multicultural meal accompanied by soft music, we turned off the lights and let the party begin. I was astonished at how quickly everyone jumped out of their seats and began dancing.

As corny as this sounds, I never imagined I’d derive so much joy from watching people enjoy the event we organized!
