President: Linda Jiang, NURS’23, Minor: Healthcare Management

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

Asian American Background: Chinese American

APANSA Memory: My favorite APANSA memory is our annual Bond-over-Bonchon event!! After several virtual COVID semesters, this was one of APANSA’s first big in-person events, and I loved seeing everyone in-person again (or some even for the first time in-person). I got to meet my APANSA littles and talk to a lot of underclassmen I never met before. The bonchon chicken was also very good, and I even tried the spicy chicken. Everyone had a lot of fun, and I was super proud of board because we put a lot of hard work into making this event happen <3.

Interests: Watching k/cdramas, baking, paint-by-numbers, running, hanging out with friends & family, petting cute dogs <3

APANSA Memory: It is definitely the people that make the club so special and welcoming. Not only do you get closer to people in your cohort, but you can also meet upperclassmen and underclassmen in different grades. Having the opportunity to branch out was something I was looking for in college and APANSA provided that in many ways.

Interests: Spotify playlists, sunsets, sparkling water, photography

APANSA Memory: One of my favorite events recently was our nursing stereotypes discussion in NCHW, when we enjoyed Insomnia and Sobol and shared personal experiences growing up AAPI and pursuing nursing as a career. It was a really intimate conversation, and I was happy to hear so many similar experiences from other aFAMsa members and enjoy that space of comfort we created.
