OYFA!  Happy last week of classes!  With the year winding down, we would like to hear your input about the Year in OYFA as well as what you would like to see for the 30th anniversary next year!  We invite you out to our first ever OYFA Town Hall on Thursday, April 27th in New Cabell at 6PM (event page will be up soon).  We are looking specifically for general members to talk about what they like about OYFA and what they want to see in the organization, so we hope to see you all there! If you have any questions about anything OYFA related, you know we’d love to chat!

We would like to thank everyone who went to our first event this Saturday! I hope it was very eye opening and that you all learned a lot about the prevalence of human trafficking within both the US and the Philippines. If you would like to learn more about GABRIELA DC and what they do, check out their FB page!

Word of the Week: Salamat (“sal”-”lam”-”maht”) means thank you! Salamat to everyone who came and supported us, as well as salamat po to Ayah, tita Delia, and tita Vene for coming all the way down from DC to present to us and share their stories!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! It’s the last full week of school so just push through! Speaking of the end of the semester...FINALS IS COMING UP! We cannot ignore it, and sadly we cannot avoid it. Scholarship will be booking some rooms during finals week so be on the lookout for that on the OYFA facebook page! 

Study hard, take a break, get some sleep, and have a wonderful week! 

With Love,
Angel Jomuad (aj4dg) & Rose Montgomery (rgm5he)

Humans of OYFA

"I would say my year has been pretty shambly. My car got totaled earlier in the year on the way to Wing Night, I went missing during Homecoming weekend, and I accidentally got a perm. But even though it’s been pretty rough, this has been the most experience-rich years of my time here at UVA. I became semi-pescartarian.  Charlottesville doesn’t really offer that many options for good and affordable seafood. That’s why I say I’m semi-pescatarian. Like if it isn’t possible to eat fish,  I’m willing to eat something else. People look at it as a some sort of joke a lot of the time, but I feel like it’s a legitimate life choice, or at least a personal experiment. I think the car accident may have made me subconsciously prefer fish, or maybe it was just a change in my tastebuds; honestly, I don’t really know why – I only know I really like fish."
