The people have always been the best part about being in a filipinx culture, but it's not just about spending time with each other and enjoying life that makes it special, it's the fact that we can be ourselves. The moment I became more connected to my filipinx culture came when CWU hosted the 2018 NWFASA FCN. My vision for the event was for the performers to express themselves by doing a performance that they felt proud of doing. After the event was over, people told me it went great and they had fun, which was exactly what I wanted to accomplish. I want people to be comfortable in their own skin and enjoy being around the beauty NWFASA has to offer. It's amazing that their are so many filipinx people that value the importance of connecting.
