AIN'T NO PARTY LIKE A GANGSTA PARTY CUZ A GANGSTA PARTY DON'T STOP.
Known as the loudest and proudest fams of them all, we are Gangsta Fam. Gangsta Fam was founded in 2003 by Joe Domingo and Jerry Lamigo, making us one of the OG fams in the Kuya Ate Ading Mentorship Program. Both of our founders are business majors, so we be gettin that money. Although we were founded by business, it's not a primary trait of our fam anymore.
We are now one of the biggest fams with around 170 active members. Our fam colors are black and gold and our symbol, the trident, represents the 3 main lines in the fam: Booty Line, Dancer Line and Hot Mess Line. Gangsta Fam is as active as we are big! We love to represent our fam so you'll always see at least one of us at events. There are clumps of Gangstas at Akbayan events and workshops, but come up to talk to us--we don't bite!!
As of the 18-19 academic year, we have 3 Gangstas on the cabinet, Malia Campos as secretary, Maelin Aquino as Community and Political Affairs Chair, and Sidhartha Taruc for Public Relations. In past years, we've had Rachel Velasco for Media and Publication during the 14-15 school year and Carl Cortez as Cultural Chair on the'16-'17 cabinet and '17-'18's Internship Coordinator. Your current Fam Reps are Jana Dionisio and Marnelli Canosa, taking on the position after Derica Malaca, Gaby Despues, and Yevgeny Medalle.
As if you didn't know, our mantra is"Loud and Proud". Our cheers are over the top and if one of our own has a performance or is taking part in a big event, we're always there to support our fellow Gangstas. We are go-getters, so if a fam member isn't active within the organization, chances are they are active in other campus organizations such as Greek Life, Housing Services or student government, or strictly juggle a job (or more) and classes. We're headstrong and we know what we want--and if we know we can get it, we will. We all hustle separately but Gangstas stay loyal- we all reunite during Revealing, as if we never left.
