President 2016-2017

I strive for each student who comes through PASA's door to gain a sense of cultural and identity awareness, community engagement, educational assistance, empowerment, and a plethora of friends who become pretty much family. The merit of my goals is only done by achieving it with my Core and all of you general members, cause we're all in this together!

I am currently a 4th year studying Political Science with an option is Public Admin and Asian American Studies minor. Was born in Toronto (The 6) but later grew up in Union City. I joined PASA the 1st quarter of my freshmen year just so I can do Friendship Games to see my friends at different schools, but I ended up staying after spontaneously going to Internship Interviews. I later ran for Core because I wanted to see many of the issues pertaining to the Filipinx community represented in PASA. So began my journey on Core, from Community (now Community and Political Affairs Chair), to External Vice President, and now President. I've had the pleasure with helping bringing back PASAlubong, doing those workshops, and getting PASA involved. I do a lot of other stuff too to put in here but slide through my DMs if you tryna connect. One love!

It's become a blessing to be here today and I'm thankful for errythang! Yee!
