Hey yalls!! (๑>◡<๑) <3
My name is Fianca Banca (she/her/hers), but you can call me Fifi. I am the student advisor for Andres Bonifacio Samahan for the year 2020-2021, alongside my co, Jessica. Our duties include being able to advise executive board members and general body members with any opinions or suggestions relating to any issues of the organization. I am a third year psychology major.
I was born in Guam, moved to the Philippines after about a month of being born, and then moved to The Bay Area in California when I was five years old. I really like exploring new places and moving to San Diego for college has been such an amazing experience. I recently started getting interested in video games and I like to watch anime :) If you have any anime recommendations please let me know about them! I would love to watch them!
Since quarantine began, I have not been doing anything new. I stayed home the majority of the time since I moved back to the bay, and recently moved into a house in San Diego, with some of my beautiful friends ;) I also started getting into gaming, like I mentioned before. If any of y’alls want to play Valorant with me, hit me up! I am not that good but I really enjoy the gameplay!
I joined AB Samahan my freshman year of college and it has been one of the best choices I have made. AB Samahan is my home away from home. I met so many wonderful people, made lifelong friends, and I have never felt so much more closer to my culture and community than before. There are various reasons why people should join. It could be for the social aspect, the academic aspect, the political aspect, to get more involved with the community, and/or to learn more about the Filipino culture. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming, and I always just look forward to coming out and meeting new people!
This is my second year on board and my third year at SDSU, and I have pretty good knowledge of how things work, so if you have any questions about school or about Samahan, please don’t be afraid to reach out to me and my co. We are here to help y’alls out the best we can! I always love being able to talk to new people and help someone out! Can’t wait to see y’alls around! Stay safe and healthy, and do not forget to wash your hands and wear your masks! :)
