Our member of the week last week was Erica Bautista! We asked her why she is passionate about OUAB and she said, “Honestly, my passion for OUAB comes from the endless opportunities it has given me. From befriending other fellow members to helping plan events and even meeting some talent artists, I have witnessed firsthand how much this organization strives to embody its mission statement. I absolutely love seeing everyone brainstorm and plan all these events; it’s even more rewarding to see the impact it makes on other students. Additionally, as a relatively shy person, I have stepped beyond my comfort zone and developed and fostered valuable skills I otherwise would not have without OUAB. I greatly appreciate how OUAB promotes such a welcoming and respectful community by encouraging us to contribute in any way we can.” Thanks for all you do, Erica!
