Community Service Committee
Are you interested in doing direct service involving not only Filipino issues but also the surrounding community with a group of awesome people? In addition to continuing our efforts to cultivate these relationships with community organizations like PAWIS (Pilipino Association of Workers and Immigrants), we also aim to engage in direct service within the surrounding communities. This includes collaborating with Challah for Hunger, SPOON (cooking breakfast for the Opportunity Center), the Haas Center, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, the Asian American Donor Program, and more! CommServe also organizes events like Mano Po, a program to honor Filipino veterans, and the annual CommServe/Kababayan environmental justice dinner to raise awareness and funds for indigenous communities in Mindanao. By mobilizing the greater Stanford community to reach out to the underserved, with a special focus on our Filipino brothers and sisters, we celebrate the spirit of bayanihan that is endemic to the Filipino heritage. Join CommSwerve! You'll make a difference and have a blast!
Bae is a sophomore interested in Product Design and Psychology. They are passionate about advancing causes of the API community through roles not just in PASU, but in Q&A, AASA, Sanskriti, SYZ, and as an Okada preassign. Bae loves to draw, sculpt, etc and has made it their goal to take one artistic class each quarter. Ask them about Stanford Graphic Novel Project! Other fun facts: their varied music taste may best be described as "Costco sampler", they've been dyeing/cutting their own hair for 6 years, and the pet tortoise that they had in 3rd grade ran away. Yes. Ran away.
After seeing role models and friends cheer wildly for PASU at We Are Family when their promo video came onscreen, Bae decided to join in the hopes of finding a warm, fun, and passionate pamilya. It was the right choice.
Josh is a sophomore double majoring in Anthropology and Public Policy. A biracial Filipino American, Josh joined PASU to gain a deeper understanding of his own Pinoy identity and to immerse himself in both the Pilipinx and API communities at Stanford and in the Bay Area. His favorite thing about PASU is how tight-knit of a community it is, but at the same time it's one that's inviting of people of all identities and backgrounds. Josh is also involved in the Cancer Coalition, a Stanford club affiliated with Be The Match and the American Cancer Society that focuses on cancer-related advocacy on campus, as well as the Stanford Democrats.
