A student organizer, hopeful educator and novelist, and lover of their many plants, Lina is a current university student based in Daly City/SF, CA. Lina is currently pursuing a degree in Astrophysics with a minor in Race and Resistance Studies. Lina draws much of their inspirations in life from their Filipino background. With a passion towards organizing the Filipino communities in the Bay Area, Lina currently is involved with the League of Filipino Students, SFSU. Lina hopes to bring about a new push for ethical scientific practice and the accessibility and relevancy of education.
Lina owns ten plants, too many books, and lives with two other queer, Filipino academics. Lina is currently bitter that they can’t have a cat in their house and copes by reading Haruki Murakami and Junji Ito.
