Her Campus at UPR got together with Alex Cepeda to reminisce on Tuna Bardos UPR achievements in September and talk about their future activities.


12th International Contest of Tunas

Alex: “This was my first trip with Tuna Bardos UPR, I had never flown outside of Puerto Rico, so it was very emotional and the flight didn’t seem that long! The moment we won, I felt peace and ecstasy, because we prepared for 8, almost 9, months… It was a moment where I knew that everything I did was worth it. I feel that there are no words to fully explain how it feels when you win something like this. We put our University’s name up high, we put Puerto Rico on the map, and we put the reputation of our tuna up high!”

Held at Eindhoven, Holanda, the “City of Lights” from the 15th to the 18th of September, Tuna Bardos had a great run since they won three of the awards: Best Tuna, Best Show, and Tuna of the public.
