Modern fam is relatively small, but due to our size, we are more close knit. All of us have busy schedules, so it is hard to see each other as a whole group. More often, we hang out in smaller groups and this we find it is easier to become closer and bond together. Whenever our whole fam is back together, it’s like nothing ever changed and we never had a long break from each other. Other than being in close groups, we seem to have found very close friends in each other even if it’s just two people. Not only are Kuyate-Ading pairings close, but those who are just in each other’s line or in another line as well. The tight friendships we have are why we appreciate Akbayan for bringing us closer together and for bringing us into a hyphy family.
