Royal Fam was established in October 2009 by Mary Ann Maripon and officially named in 2012.
“I was Core's Social Coordinator when we first started Kapatid Program and I thought it would be exciting to start my very own family! The idea behind the Kapatid program was to be like a mentor to new members and to help them in a way only a Kuya or Ate would. I wanted to be somebody that an ading could look up to, ask for advice, or just hang out with. It felt nice knowing that by starting my own family, I would have a legacy that would continue through my adings from the impact they make in PASA and anything else they choose to succeed in. Whatever they achieve together as a group and even as individuals makes me feel like I am still connected to them in a way. I am super proud of where the Kapatid Program brought my family and our other families! I hope these relationships will last and keep everyone connected not only through CSUEB but beyond it as well.“ - Mary Ann Maripon
