Why did you decide to run for this position?

As middle school me would say.. FILIPINO PRIDE. I wanted to showcase all the little intricacies of filipino culture, from chinelas to mano po. And I saw culture as a way to promote all of that. I also saw the bonds Culturefest and Barrio have made between the members of OYFA and wanted to help making everyone's experience the best it can be!

If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

I want to be able to freeze time.. you know those occasional moments where everything's perfect and you're completely content. Laughing with your best friends in your basement or driving with the windows down with the perfect song blasting. I want to be able to live in those moments a little longer and savor it a little more.

I hand you the AUX cord. What song are you playing?

Bohemian Rhapsody, because who doesn't like screaming at the top of their lungs with your best friends going 70mph on the interstate

How would you plan your perfect day?

I would wake up early one morning and get in my car and just pointlessly drive in one direction. Hopefully, I would fine somewhere with a great view and chill for a little. Then I would google a great taco place nearby and eat some carne asada tacos. Then maybe catch the sunset on the drive back home and do some stargazing.

If you were stuck in an Island and could only eat one food the entire time, what would you choose?

Cannolis.. I'm probably gonna be really sad being stuck on an island, and cannolis usually make me really happy so why not

Why did you decide to run for this position?

I first got really involved with OYFA through Culturefest in my first year. In the past two years I truly enjoyed learning about and appreciating Filipino culture as a part of being in organization. Because I had such fun bonding experiences through dance practices, I wanted to make sure future babies and OYFA in general are make the same great memories.

If you were given the AUX, which song would you play?

Ruled by 6lack

What is one goal you want to accomplish by the end of the year?

I’d love to have healthy hair again. I dye my hair so often that I feel as though it’s dead.

Favorite class at UVA and why?

Peer counseling! You learn so much about how to be a good listener and you come out with better problem solving skills.
