What’s kickin, lil chicken?
My name is Kyla Gampol (she/her/hers), or Kye (pronounced like chi-squared) for short. I am this year’s 2020-2021 Historian! I work alongside many of the officers in Samahan and take care of recording and documenting events by taking photos and making videos to share with ya’ll. I’ll be that short girl holding her Iphone like Kris Jenner with the Kardashians XD
I’m currently a 2nd year nursing major *cries in cursive*, BUT do not let that fool you. On top of academics, I love taking photos and making small montages. I also love fashion, which I currently run a small business selling secondhand curated clothing on insta (@stuffbykye). I love going by the trends, as well as establishing my own type of style. I’m currently working on making my own clothes, trying to be as sustainable as possible, because I luuvvv Mother Earth and fast fashion isn’t it :(( On top of that, travelling is a passion of mine. I’ve visited 12/195 countries as well as 19/50 states. I have been travelling ever since I was younger.
I was born and raised in the Philippines and immigrated to the US when I was 5. Ever since then, I have lived in Orange County. In my free time, I explore OC for new foods and places. I’m a sucker for anything nature so I’ll most likely be by the beach, out taking pictures in a flower field, or hiking in the mountains. I would say I’m pretty adventurous, but only with the right people YA HEAARD.
Leaving OC was a thrill and spur-of-a-moment decision. However, it was the best decision I have ever made. Through Samahan, I have found people that could support me in my educational growth, as well as encourage the spontaneity within me. I have created so many memories that are just purely good vibez and I wouldn’t trade that for anything. Joining AB Samahan provides so many opportunities for anyone AND everyone. If ya’ll need a mentor for your major, there are so many people in Samahan that you can look to for help. Past academics, we are here to support you in every way possible. We are your mentors, confidants, and most importantly your friends :)
Please do not hesitate to contact me!! I am only a call away from any questions, if ya’ll want to hang out, or even ask me what filter you should use for your next insta post hahah. I hope ya’ll make the best out of this college experience because it truly only happens once in our lives (YOLO). Down below are my handles if ya’ll want to exchange them hehe <3
