My name is Long Phan, my pronouns are He/Him/His. I am an undeclared 2nd year and Samahan’s Social Activities Coordinator for the 2020-2021 term! As Social Activities Coordinator, I am responsible for overseeing many of the social events planned throughout the year and I am in charge of the Kuya Ate Ading mentorship program! My main event for this term is the KAA mentorship program (Kuya Ate Ading), which is one of Samahan’s biggest events that happen in Fall and Spring :) KAA is a program where kuyas (Big Brother) and ates (Big Sister) pick up adings (Little Siblings) to serve them as a role model or a peer mentor by giving them advice on school or life in general :) Yall should apply because it is a great way to meet new people and create lifelong friendships!
Little facts about me, I was born and raised in San Diego but I still don’t know my freeways >-< (Yea I know pathetic…) I usually spend most of my time playing League of Legends and watching anime hehe. I also like binging Studio Ghibli movies! (My Favs are Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, and Howl’s Moving Castle) When I'm not wasting my time playing League all day, you can catch me at Convoy drinking boba or eating out with friends! If you ever wanna hang out, just holla and we can go or do whatever! Since we’ve been in quarantine, I've picked up a liking towards cooking! As of right now, I love cooking Japanese and Korean food such as Tonkatudon, Japanese Curry, Kimchi Fried Rice, and Sundubu-jjigae. Another thing about me, I work at MNGO Cafe so if y'all ever crave kakigoris or mango sticky rice, LET ME KNOWWW! It’s pretty fye and I can give you discount ;)
When I first started as a freshman in college, I didn’t really know how to approach new people or even keep a conversation since I was an introverted person. I’ve heard about AB Samahan from last term’s board when they came up to me and my group of friends. What made me join Samahan was that they were welcoming and loving toward others. I’ve made many great memories with the people in Samahan and I can’t wait to see y'all make your own new memories this year! :’)
If you ever see me at school, out in Convoy, or working at MNGO, don’t hesitate to stop by and say hi! If you have any questions regarding towards the KAA program or need someone to talk to, my contact information is down below:
