Hometown: Whittier

Hobbies/Interests: Just your average Filipino, Guamanian, Mexican animator to be. I enjoy drawing, volunteering, playing/watching/coaching sports, taking beach & museum trips, movie marathons, and anything Disney (or Dat knee).

Favorite Food/Place to Eat: Homemade family recipes and avocados.

Favorite Song/Artist: My music library consists of songs by different artists spanning multiple decades and genres. RnB, Pop, Rap, Broadway, Reggaeton.... I like songs to dance and have fun to. Lately, I've been listening to a lot of T-Pain and have had "Love Lies (Maw Remix)" on repeat.

Favorite Animal: Its a tie between sea turtles and narwals  

Craziest Thing you've ever done: My friend and I hopped an eight foot gate to escape the police who were trying to shut down a party in a rich neighborhood.

Favorite memory of FG: Friendships Games is such a unique event that brings together so many amazing people: FG 30, 31, 32 (and soon 33) are my favorites. I will say one of the best moments is seeing everyone's energy explode when they step onto campus and SPUF with each other. I've always enjoyed the creativity that every school brings to their theme.

What Pasa has done for you: PASA is my drive to be a better person: socially, culturally, intellectually, creatively. They have given me confidence, support, family, and amazing memories. When I look back at my college years, PASA will be one of the things I will be the most proud to be apart of.
