Check Out Dellys Arzolay’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dellys Arzolay. Them and their team share their story with us below:

This story began in Tampa Florida, in May 2018, in the heart of Dellys Arzolay, Yesenia Trujillo, and Yashira Rivera, with people from the Public Schools, we were giving classes in the Libraries and sharing Hispanic Heritage Day in the school, squares, and events in the city.

It all started with the concern of not having Hispanic teachers to teach arts in relation to Hispanic culture to children in schools and that is why we had to create a solution so that our children would not lose their cultural roots and traditions.

Soon the media echoed our activities and everything began to have life in the community, every day more people came to talk to us about what they had seen in our presentations and to tell us that they wanted to be part of the movement.

That was what connected us with Iglesia Tierra Desirable and that was how we arrived in North Carolina in 2019, here we found ourselves with wonderful people, Jaqueline Vega, Andrea Hernandez, and Jolene Hernandez, they were the mothers and representatives who kept that flame alive to achieve what is today The Hispanic Club of Arts.

Now with also fabulous people, involved in life with this, such as Dante Muñoz, husband of Dellys Arzolay, Eridania Menegildo, Eva and Milser Contreras, Samuel Ortega and Ashley Contreras, who today form an incredible team that has made that flame now a great torch that is constantly lit in the lives of more than 100 students.

We are aware that there is still a long way to go, that it will be even more complicated, but we enjoy the present and we are preparing to celebrate our first 4 years, the road is still open and we are happy to want to travel it.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
The road has been very hard, But with God’s help, we managed to pull threw the struggles and obstacles.

  • Lack of economic resources.
  • Covid-19.
  • Lack of economic resources.
  • Not enough love for the Hispanic Culture.
  • Lack of musical instruments.
  • Lack of chairs, tables and a location where we can do everything.
  • Lack of economic resources.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
The careers which I have graduated are:

  • Lawyer.
  • Studied music since I was young.
  • I studied to be an announcer.
  • I also studied theology.

I am known as a singer. I am proud of the people who surround me. Nothing really sets me apart from others we are all the same.

Any big plans?
We will not be making any big changes because we like how we are doing it but we do want to get better at what we are doing. We want to open up a program to learn how to read in Spanish.

Our plans for the future are to open up new headquarters and groups. We also want to prepare more teachers, of course, bring more students in different areas. We also want to get a bigger building for Club Hispano de Artes.
