I’m this year’s Academic Coordinator! My job is to help all of you with both your academic and professional development endeavors, so I’m here if you need any study strategies, need help with stress handling, resume editing, or interview practice, hit me up! I’m also responsible for planning this year’s High School Conference! The purpose of HSC is help educate high school students about opportunities to higher education and helping them learn more about self identity as well as cultural identity!
I’m a 2nd year Nursing major with a minor in Cultural Proficiency. I was born in Quezon City, Philippines but I’ve immigrated and lived in Queens, New York - Newark, New Jersey, but somehow I ended up in Temecula. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ My interests include: graphic design, roller derby, KBBQ, and dog petting (LOL).
I joined Samahan because I thought joining a Filipino organization would be really good for my college experience. It ended up opening up my world to the best of friends and a goal to discover more about my heritage and my identity as a Filipina. It is not enough to say that I wanted to join EBoard to give back to the organization that has given me so much and means so much to me, but I want to provide support in your personal academic pillar.
