What’s up everyone, my name is Jason Esguerra and I am your Chairperson for Andrés Bonifacio Samahan for the 2018-2019 academic year. I am a third year Nursing major at San Diego State University from San Diego, CA. I was born in the Philippines and have only lived in San Diego for 6 years. I actually used to live in Texas, New Jersey, and Georgia! If one word were to define what I’m like and what I like, it would be “wholesome". I love to explore new places and go on photoshoots with friends. I also love love LOVE driving and traveling and I’ve been itching to drive out to the desert or across the country. I joined AB Samahan because it gave me a medium to help raise awareness on the Filipino and Filipino-American culture and community. It also allowed me to meet life-long friends who are down for the fam. As Chairperson, I am the representative for all the ideas and actions of Andrés Bonifacio Samahan and its members in the community. My role is to support and allow members to experience the Filipino culture in an enjoyable and thoughtful manner. I chose this position because it put me in the position to further AB Samahan’s mission of supporting the community, raising cultural awareness, academic advising, and political activism. My goal for this year is to strengthen relationships within the community and create a family bond with everyone. I also aim to meet and have fun with everyone, so don’t be afraid to talk to me! Remember - I’m here for a good time, not a long time.
