Our Latest Work

Our Officer Team

Hi!!! I love eating bo luc lac and you can always catch me in Viettown in Orlando. In my free time, I try to go thrifting as much as possible and love planting plants. I get boba almost every day and my music taste is  2000s – 2010s music. I’m born and raised in Chicago before coming to Florida. I’m always down to make new friends, so don’t be afraid to message me for any questions or help! I hope to become a Chemical Engineering and continue helping the community in the future. 

Justin Le

Hey! Some hobbies I enjoy are volunteering around the community, photography/videography, playing the violin, and also watching some TV shows or movies with my family. In the future, I hope to work within the criminal investigation field and/or be in the entertainment industry.

Heart Rirao

Vice President

Hey everyone! In my free time, I enjoy drawing, playing piano, and learning to play the ukelele. I’m slightly obsessed with my two cats and Taylor Swift. You can almost always find me at a coffee shop doing homework or eating Thai food and watching trashy tv with my friends:)

Hi everyone! Some of my hobbies include playing guitar and lifting weights, though I’m relatively new to the latter! I currently work part-time at Playgrounds of Tampa, as a camp counselor and I also teach guitar lessons year-round. This upcoming season will be my 4th on the varsity soccer team at my high school and the 12th for Tampa Bay United, a local club team. When in new environments, I love striking up conversations with new people and enjoy making new friends!  I look forward to meeting more of you all!

Hey guys! One of my favorite things to do on the daily is watch anime or listen to music! I listen to any music ranging from popular queer pop artists to kpop, jpop, k hip-hop and so much more. I also love playing the violin, which I’ve been playing for 7-8 years now, and I also take part in an Indian Classical dance form called Bharathanatyam.

I’m open to anyone who wants to talk, so please feel free to message me if you have any questions !!
