FIND


What's up OYFAmilia?!

Jor and I hope you all had an amazing, relaxing summer, and we can't wait to see you all once again! Amidst school work, jobs, vacationing, and other shenanigans, your FIND chairs worked diligently this summer to make a bid to have the D7 Olympics at UVA this year, and we can officially announce to all of you that we will be hosting District 7 on September 28th for our annual Olympics! Watch out for the event page which will be up soon, as well as the event page for the after party which will be off the hizzle. Jor and I strongly believe that this year will be an incredibly strong year for District 7, and we truly hope you all will play integral roles in the successes of our district!

Favorite pick-up line: If you were a booger, I'd pick you first.
 
Your FIND Chairs with much love,

This week's Featured OYFAN is Kim Hall!


Tell us about yourself! 
My name is Kim and I am a second year.  I am Pre-Comm and still deciding if I want to do Pre-med as well.  I love animals, but only the ones that don't make any noise.  My favorite animals are cats, specifically black ones because they are so peaceful and self-sufficient!  I like my life to be really spontaneous and unplanned, except with school, of course.  I enjoy watching sports- my favorite sport to keep tabs on is professional tennis.  I'm involved with a lot of things on ground but one thing I want to do before I graduate is join a sports team because I really enjoy competing and I have never been part of a sports team due to being a band geek all throughout high school :)

Favorite GIF?
I discovered this GIF while studying for my Stat final.  I thought it was hilarious at the time.

What do you love about OYFA?
I love that people in OYFA look out for each other and support each other.  Even if a person doesn't know you very well, he or she is still willing to lend a helping hand.  Like literally every single person says that OYFA is a home a way from home and not to be cliche but it really is and its a dynamic that is unmatched.
 

Answers to the previous trivia questions: 
1. The Spanish explorer Ruy Lopez de Villalobos gave Philippines its name, and it is named after King Phillip II of Spain.
2. Michelle Zeng
