Share a favorite experience or memory you have from your time in PSA.

My favorite experience I’ve had from my time in PSA has been getting to bond with my class, Dalawa Isa Pamilya. From freshmen sleepover to spending late nights at the Ike, I’ve loved growing closer to the people in my class and I consider many of them my closest friends. I’m extremely grateful for the awesome people that I’ve made through PSA, and they are what keep me involved in this organization. PSA has become a support system for me throughout college and it is comforting knowing that I will always have PSA behind me no matter what.

Describe your experience with Battle or Barkada in general. What is the cultural significance of Barkada?

I’ve enjoyed every second of participating in Barkada. Although participating Barkada was a fairly large commitment, it was definitely worth it and I know that the memories that I made through Barkada will stay with me far beyond college. Before joining PSA, I had very little exposure to cultural dancing and my knowledge about cultural dancing was limited. Through Barkada, I was able to try cultural dancing for the first time as well as learn much more about the Filipino culture in general. Barkada is also a great way to grow closer to people outside of your class. During all the time spent at practices and at Battalion, I was able to connect with freshmen and upperclassmen that I didn’t know very well before. Barkada truly is family and I’m extremely thankful that I got to experience it through PSA.
