Krystle Torres & Mario Fong
Hello! My name is Krystle Torres and I was born and raised in San Diego. I am one of the co-choir directors of FCN 35! I am a fourth-year Kinesiology student and graduating in the spring of 2020. A fun fact about me is that this is my third time as an FCN choir director!
I’ve been singing since I was a young child and I started vocal lessons in the fifth grade through my first year of high school. In high school, I was a part of the award-winning show choir, the Music Machine, for all four years. In my junior and senior year, I was given the opportunity to be the Alto section leader which has helped me grow as a leader and as a person. I have also been a part of other singer groups outside of school, such as being a Kundirana Princess. Being a Kundirana Princess was not only another outlet for me to perform, but also to give back to a community in the Philippines.
There are a few reasons why I have re-applied for this position in FCN these last few years. One being that I miss singing, music, and performing. FCN gave me an opportunity that I don’t get very often since attending college. Second, I learn so much about culture. I thought I knew a good amount about the Filipino culture, however, there is so much more that I didn’t know and I have been given a different perspective
I look forward to working with everyone and bringing FCN 35 to life!
