Abby is a fourth year Psychology (Bio emphasis) and Human Development double major, repping the 209 loud and proud. She is a little girl with big hair, the voice of a megaphone, and the heart of an introvert. She is a frequent concert-goer and coffee-shop-worker who enjoys loud music and going out just as much as she loves a one-on-one conversation with a new friend. On the side, she loves styling clothes, graphic design, smiling, naps, adventuring, driving around with windows down and music blasting, and eating (a lot). She will always accept gifts of fresh fruit and baked goods, so…. you know. Say hello when you see her!
Abby has served on MK Board in the past as a Public Relations Co-Chair (2013-14) and Secretary (2014-15), and was Public Relations Coordinator for the 2014 Filipinx Graduation Ceremony.

Adrian is a third year Design major, who is growing to love Davis more and more each day because of the FilAm community. He's super into watching movies, listening to music, chillin' with good company, all-you-can-eat sushi buffets, thrift shops, and reppin' the 925. He's not so into people who don't signal when they change lanes, spiders, lightning, and people who bring down his vibe. As the Secretary for Mga Kapatid for the 2015-2016 school year, he wants to welcome members of the greater UC Davis community into the FilAm community, comprised of lifelong friends, mentors, and homies, as well as to both inspire and empower general and board members of the Filipinx American culture that serves as a guiding tenet for Mga Kapatid and the other FilAm organizations on campus. Don't be scared to shoot him a "hey!" or a "what's up" if you see him around campus; chances are, he's waiting for you to do so first. wink emoticon But if you do, beware: he probably won't hear you if he has his headphones in his ear.
Francesca Annelliese Dolor (call her Cheska though...LOL) is a third year psychology major with a double minor in Asian-American studies and community and regional development. Her ultimate goal is to get a doctorate degree and pursue a career in clinical psychology. She was born in the 510 but raised in Tracy, CA, the REAL cowtown. Most of her time is spent studying in coffee shops and writing in her planner, but when she's not doing school stuff, she loves hiking, instagramming (aye follow me, @cheskadolorrr ;D), spontaneous trips, trying new restaurants, and exploring music on sound cloud. If there's one thing you should know, it's that she is ADDICTED to boba and will always get boba in every town she visits. If you ever need her on campus, she's probably working at the CoHo or hanging out at the SRRC. Cheska is super passionate about student success, especially within the Fil-Am community! That being said, never hesitate to hit her up for study tips or if you need a friend to get boba/coffee and study with (or even if you just need a friend, she's down for that too!)

She enjoys napping, netflix and chilling in the literal sense, and doing things when her friends tell her she isn't down. She's also known as Kawawa and Jasmine AF because of her quirkiness, vocabulary, and mannerisms. If you identify as a middle child, listen to hip hop, or if your favorite Disney movie is A Goofy Movie then you two will mos def get along. Don't be afraid to say hi if you see her and her RBF on campus, especially if her glasses are off since she's probably just squinting to see your face better.

Noelle is a third year (soon to be) Human Development major who grew up in Concord, California. She reps the 925 all day erryday. Noelle enjoys doing things like spending time with loved ones, sleeping, playing tennis, singing, watching Steven Universe, and eating. She also loves with anything Disney (except for post-Wizards-of-Waverly-Place-Disney-Channel), so one of her favorite places of all time is Disneyland.
Growing up, Noelle cultivated her passion for music through joining school choirs, orchestras, and marching band. As this year's MK Choir Rep, Noelle hopes to help others who share the same passion express themselves and hopefully find a family—not only within MK Choir—but within the whole Fil-Am community as well. :) Speaking of the rest of the Fil-Am, Noelle is also a sister of Kappa Psi Epsilon, aka THE best and realest sisterhood ever!!
Because Noelle strongly believes that everything happens for a reason, one of Noelle’s main goals is to live life with no regrets. That’s why you can always find her around campus talking/laughing/having a good time with the people around her. She loves meeting new people and is very friendly right off the bat, so if you see her around don't be afraid to say hello!

Some of her talents include unintentional sarcasm, spelling words backwards, and motivating you to love yourself. She’s always down for food and friendship (and strongly believes that the two go hand-in-hand), so don’t be afraid to hit her up whenever you’re in need of a shoulder to cry on and/or have an unexplainable craving for chicken wings. Coming all the way from Sacramento, CA, she considers Davis to be her home away from home and is truly grateful for the Fil-Am community and the MK Modern fam.
