My name is Julian Cagonot and I am your 2016-2017 Social Chair! I’ve been a part of this amazing organization since my freshman year of college, and honestly it has given me the best college experience anyone could have ever asked for. Throughout the years, I’ve been a part of KAAMP core, Friendship Games SPUF core, as well as being a family representative for the best fam in the world: VENTURE FAM! So to give you all a little bit about myself: I’m from Danville, CA. (Fun fact: I went to high school with E40’s son) and on my free time, I like to play the piano, go to the gym, eat Korean BBQ, watch “diners, drive-ins, and dives” and go to flavor town (Guy Fieri is my hero), use SpongeBob references in everyday conversations, go on spontaneous adventures looking for hidden places where there are awesome views…and last but not least, watch my beloved Golden State Warriors! As social chair, it is my goal to bring as much passion and leadership to this position to give general members great social events and better their social experience in college as much possible. Also, I want to take this opportunity to give back to Akbayan for all it has provided me as well. I want to build new connections, create bonds, and embody the true meaning of embracing in friendship! Anyways, I cannot wait to see what this year has in store, but feel free to ask me any questions or just come say hello if you see me around campus! :D.
