Favorite Memory with APANSA: Last school year and for the first time, APANSA collaborated with Minorities in Nursing Organization (MNO) to create a safe space for students to discuss what it meant to “navigate relationships in the nursing school as a student of color”. It was a two-part series, in which the first event was open to just nursing students and the second event invited nursing faculty of color to join in on the conversation. It was a truly insightful and liberating experience to engage in socially conscious and sensitive topics that are very much needed in the School of Nursing. I thank APANSA for allowing us, students, to create such a space and I hope to program events people can look back on as their “favorite memory” from APANSA! :) Read about the first event here:

Fun Fact: I visited China for the first time over winter break my sophomore year, specifically Shanghai, with a Penn Global Seminar to study Traditional Chinese Medicine!

Favorite Memory with APANSA: I baked cookies with christine for quali-tea and we got ton know each other a lot better through that!

Fun Fact: I injured my pinky during first semester catching a frisbee


Casey Cheng, NURS ’22

Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Favorite Memory with APANSA: My favorite memory with APANSA was going to Bartram’s Garden and then Bonchon. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and made me feel like freshmen year was going to be a good time <3

Fun fact: I really like doing calligraphy and have a (really inactive) Instagram for it! Also, I got knee surgery for my meniscus freshman year of high school but I still have no clue what caused it to tear, to begin with. :)


Hannah Gu, NURS ’23

Hometown: East Hanover, NJ

Favorite Memory with APANSA: All the board meetings!

Fun fact: I can juggle!


Anjelique Agudo, NURS’21, Minor: Global Health

Hometown: Rowland Heights, CA

Favorite Memory with APANSA: I loved volunteering with APANSA at Bartram’s Garden. Although it was a rainy day, we all worked hard (pulling out weeds and vegetables) and had a great time. This event not only allowed us to give back to our community, but it also gave us the opportunity to bond with one another.

Fun Fact: I used to play basketball!


Amy Xia, NURS ’22

Hometown: Chino Hills, CA

Favorite Memory with APANSA: Volunteering at Bartram’s Garden with my friends! It was cool to see the before and after of the areas we worked on, and we even found a pretty big garden snake!

Fun Fact: I’ve taken a total of 8 CPR classes in the past 6 years…so hopefully my skills will come in handy in an emergency.


Felicia Chen, NURS’22

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

Favorite Memory with APANSA: My favorite memory has to be our mochi making event! Aside from the fact that I’m too big a sweet tooth, being able make food with a family away from home is more than I could ask for.

Fun Fact: I can crack my right toes.


















Linda Jiang, NURS ’23, Minor: Healthcare Management

Hometown: Philadelphia, PA

Favorite Memory with APANSA: My favorite memory with APANSA was the Brunch Study Break at Selena’s place. It was so wholesome and well-needed before final exams. I really liked being off-campus, talking to more people, and listening to Christmas music.

Fun Fact: I thought I wanted to become a pharmacist for a long time, but I’m so glad I didn’t because nursing is such a great profession and the people I’ve met here have been truly amazing.
