My name is Moira Simpao (she/her/hers) and I am a third-year Kinesiology, Pre-Physical Therapy major with an Interdisciplinary Studies minor. I am the Alumni Liaison for the 2020-2021 academic year! With this position, I primarily serve as the bridge of communication between current students and the alumni community of AB Samahan.
I am from the San Francisco Bay Area, but I spend most of the year in San Diego to study at SDSU. In my free time, I enjoy working out, watching basketball, listening to different kinds of music, and watching movies (especially Disney and Marvel movies!!). I also really love to travel and try new types of food.
Since quarantine began, I feel like I revisited some of my old habits and interests. I started binge-watching more TV shows and found myself listening to k-pop again. If you have any recommendations, please send them my way （＾∀＾）
For me, AB Samahan is my “home away from home”. With many events and programs like the Kuya-Ate-Ading (KAA) Program and Filipino Culture Night (FCN), AB Samahan has has given me a safe space to learn more about Filipino/Fil-Am culture and meet friends and mentors that continue to push me in becoming the best version of myself. I am forever thankful for this organization in contributing such a positive and instrumental part of my overall growth and college experience.
These are certainly unprecedented times, but I hope our community at AB Samahan can help make the most out of your college experience. I’m excited to meet all of you - don’t be afraid to say hi!!
