30 Under 30: Dasha Kuret ’12
Dasha Kuret ’12 said she dreamed of attending UCF one day. She majored in health sciences pre-clinical, and after founding her own personal fitness company, Crowning Fitness LLC, was selected by World Wrestling Entertainment to serve as a community liaison and ring announcer.
A former Miss UCF, Kuret is committed to educating students about the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. She has spoken to thousands of students across Central Florida about oral hygiene, and is an active philanthropic partner with Read Across America and First Book, organizations that promote literacy. She is deeply rooted in service, and strongly believes in the importance of giving back.
As a public figure, Kuret says her favorite part of her role with WWE is not what you see on television. Rather, she said, “It’s the interactions with the individuals in communities across the globe, to talk to them about health, fitness, and to simply put a smile on their face.” She is the epitome of a young alumna who has taken the skills and opportunities she gained at UCF, and reinvested her growth and success back into the community.
