Hey guys! Dana & Dorian here, your student advisors for the 2019-2020 school year! We are super duper excited for next year! Get ready to yeet and to be yeeted amirite? 

Here’s a quick bio for both of us:

I'm Dorian and I'm a 3rd year studying Civil Engineering with a concentration in Environmental & Water Resource Engineering! I’m a former Advocacy & Historic Chair so I’m always ready to talk about Asian-American issues and to take a photo. I love to watch anime and i’m starting to climb regularly now so if you wanna watch anime while climbing hmu. 


My name is Dana and I’m a rising 4th year studying Psychology! I’ve served as the past membership chair and studied abroad last semester in South Korea! I love music and talking about mental health and Asian American identity. I hope I can explore these topics with OYFA as student advisor as well as share my love of music with through events like Historic & Intercourse and jam sessions/karaoke! 


We’ve been friends since our first year in OYFA and we can’t wait to serve as your student advisors next year! See you soon!
