Christina “Super Woman” Rodriguez, 22, is a Rowan University senior studying Broadcast Journalism with a minor in Theater Arts. This Jersey girl was born and raised in Atlantic City where she spent most of her days rehearsing for her theatrical performances. Listen to Christina’s high aspirations and dream only on Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS FM with host, Dr. Stanley El, D.Div.
At age 4 she was introduced to latin dancing. Her mother,Valentina Morales, was not hesitant to enroll her to dance at the Puerto Rican parades. By 5th grade her talents as an actress had emerged. She played the role of Harmiony Granger in her class performance of Harry Potter. A year later Christina became a rising star at Chelsea Heights School. She sang her first solo “I believe I can fly,” infront of the entire school. Although she was nervous she knew her strong faith in God would help her through it.

An avid disciple of world dance Olga El is inspired by the myriad of cultural traditions to which she has been exposed and a love of storytelling. From a young age she was particularly enamored by dances from the Middle East and the northern hemisphere of Africa–better known as belly dance–and chose these dance forms as the foundation of her personal fusion style which includes martial arts, experimental theatre and dances from the West African Diaspora including Latin-American styles and Hip Hop.
From 2008-2011 she directed the belly dance troupe Bastet and its charitable sub-division Belly Dance for Change. She is the founder and artistic director of The Kandake–a dance-theatre collective that combines social activism and philanthropy with folkloric, modern, theatrical and experimental movement.
Join Dr. Stanley El, D.Div. as he welcomes Olga to ‘The American Dream’ radio show Wednesday, October 23rd airing live at 5pm only on Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS FM.
