What was your first impression of PSA & how does it differ from your impression of it now?
PSA was intimidating at first! Everyone was so close from the start and I was nervous that I wouldn’t fit it. Now I feel like I am part of the family and can be included with all of the members.

What’s it like to be in PSA?
A good memory I have of PSA is performing at Battle of the Bamboo and taking first place. After months upon months of practice, being up on that stage really feels right.

What advice can you give to students?
BE OPEN TO MEETING NEW PEOPLE! Don’t try to form the group! Be part of everyone and be able to be close with the organization and people outside of PSA as well.

What was your first impression of PSA & how does it differ from your impression of it now?
My first impression was that I’ve never seen so many Filipinos close to my age since I went to Pin@y Palooza or some famous youtube artist’s concert. I was a little overwhelmed and I had a hard time figuring out everyone’s names. I still think there’s a lot of us (LOL!) but it’s amazing how I got to know everyone and how close everyone becomes throughout the year.

What’s it like to be in PSA?
This is not like any other organization I know. The first time I saw PSA was when they performed at the Battle of the Bamboo in 2012 and they were legit. Throughout my freshman year I learned that PSA has so much to offer.You meet a variety of people, from extremely weird to hardworking students. Being around these people you begin to learn more about yourself and they help you inspire to be role model to others.

What advice can you give to students?
1. Make your academics your FIRST PRIORITY. Please do not procrastinate!! It really puts a lot of unnecessary stress on you and it takes away your sleeping hours. Trust me, you need sleep.
2. When you have an hour or more break between your classes, use that time to get any work done. DO NOT use that time to take a nap. As tempting as that sounds, using that break to study will help you in the long run.
3. College is very expensive so learn how to budget! Buy what you need, not what you want.
4. There are many opportunities to choose from and you’re going to meet a lot of interesting people from different parts of the world. Just go out there and explore. You’re still young so don’t be afraid to try new things. Especially to the freshman, do whatever you can to make your first year memorable. Time is precious, so waste it wisely 🙂
