Recall your favorite PSA memory.

My freshmen year when we would get a PSA group to ball up at the ARC. It wasn’t necessarily the basketball aspect that made this my favorite memory but it was the experience. I was a shy freshmen who didn’t know any of the upperclassman but by the end, I felt more than welcomed to PSA and even found some of my AKAs.

Why did you join PSA?

I joined PSA because I was part of KHB, my highschool Filipino club. I stayed in PSA because it gave me an experience that helped define my college years.

Tell us about yourself.

Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galatica.

What do you do in your free time?

Figure out what to do in my free time.

What resources are available around campus for students to be more involved in the Asian American community?

AACC. There’s a Pokestop there. Go in. Talk to the staff. If you want to see change in your community, be the force that causes it.

What should we be looking forward to with you as President?

One of the past Presidents wrote in a letter that PSA is a great organization and there is no reason that should ever change. My vision is to continue the truth of that statement by sustaining our multi-faceted experience and culture.

Who is your biggest role model?

My Ate Katreena [Casallo]. I honestly had no idea what I was doing with my life in terms of career, socially, and everything. Directly and indirectly, she helped me reexamine my morals and goals and shaped my aspirations.

Dream job?

Food critic in combination with diet pill tester.

Personal theme song?

Everybody’s Something by Chance the Rapper
