What’s your fondest PSA memory?

Freshmen Sleepover, we all entered the sleepover as a bunch of strangers but left it the next morning close friends. 🙂

How would you describe this year’s theme of “Ating Tahanan?”

This year’s theme can be described as the home away from home. Everyone coming to campus has some sort of family back home, and leaving the people you’ve shared your whole life with can be quite hard. PSA offers that home away from home, it eases transition for incoming students.

Tell us about yourself.

It feels weird talking about myself. I am Zahir, easy-going, always smiling, and I love food.

What is one piece of advice you would give to people reading this?

If you fall down, don’t you dare stay down. Get up, fix yourself and keep walking. At this age we are bound to fall and experience hiccups. But the worst thing one can do is succumb and let that hiccup keep them down. This is coming from a guy who has fallen many times.

What would you like to do before you die?

If money was not involved and there is no external pressure from family, I would love to to be a Political Science major/History major (Mainly European History). And I would love to be a professor.
