Hello! My name is Marco Morillo and I am a 4th year Economics Major, and I am your 2016-2017 KAAMP Coordinator! I am originally from Bakersfield California, but moved to the “707”, Fairfield lol, when I was in the 4th grade till I came to San Jose for college. My interests/hobbies include watching the Flash and Game of Thrones, then maybe going outside to play basketball and golf, or maybe just Pokemon Go lol. If not those things like to spend my spare time playing video games or going to the gym.
My journey through Akbayan started my second year in SJSU. I can honestly say I was going through one of the toughest years of my life and I still hadn’t found a place to call home on campus yet. Once I joined Akbayan the first thing I participated in was KAAMP. KAAMP gave me a Kuya who helped me through my tough time and a Family (SMASH FAM) that gave me a great support system. I spent my first year in Akbayan learning about more about it. Then, in my second year I experienced it through being a Supreme intern and taking part of Friendship Games and PCHEHN. This organization has given me so much and I am forever grateful for it. Whether you’re a kuya, ate, or ading, I look forward to being a part of your Akbayan journey this year through KAAMP! See you all by the KAAMPFire!
