I ran for this position because I wanted to have an impact in OYFA and on a larger scale. D7 gave me the opportunity to meet the other Filipino Organizations and reflect on our place as Filipinos within our society. I knew I wanted to work with the other organizations and representatives to learn more about them and how we are supposed to work as a group to show the Filipino culture and identity.
FAMILY WEEEEEEEEEK. When we finally found out who our Bigs were and came together as an organization to enjoy spending time together; it was such a surreal time. It was a time I'll always remember because I felt welcomed. I knew from that moment forward that these CRAZY people (and I mean these people who I didn't even know) were going to be my support system throughout the year. It was during this week that I realized that OYFA was more than just "some other organization to join;" it was my comfort, my motivation, and my family.

I would want to hang out with my best friends, by the beach, eating lots of food and FUNNEL CAKE (fun fact: I love funnel cake) while in my Eno taking a nap or reading a book.
I want to work on being more self-confident. If you feel confident, then you act with confidence. And when you act with confidence, everything falls into place. There is no point in putting yourself down and comparing yourself to the unrealistic. I want to give myself the opportunity to grow and find my vibe.

I'm passionate about helping people. I love seeing people happy and I love making people feel appreciated. There's nothing more rewarding than showing people that they are worth so much more than they tell themselves.
