My favorite experience as an intern for Mariachi Femenil Detroit was being able to see the development of the group throughout the summer. MFD is a local organization composed of college students, high school students, mothers, and in general, members of the community that are very busy. Despite their very busy lives, it was great to experience the development and the expansion of the group this summer. Although the Mariachi musical movement is not as prominent in the Midwest Region, especially a female based ensemble, I have high hopes for MFD’s future. With the amount of success and recognition that we had the privilege to experience, I foresee recruiting, performances, and support for community events to continue to increase.
