Hello everybody, I am so  excited to be one of this year's CEO's! I hope that I will be seeing and meeting many of you throughout the year in classes and at events, which will be so fun, but in the meantime, here's a little bit about myself:

This is my second year at Cascadia and I should be graduating at the end of spring quarter so that I can transfer to a four-year university. I grew up in Aberdeen with four older sisters and an older brother, moved up here a tiny-little school where I graduated with a class of eleven students total. Laughing is my favorite thing to do. Also, I love traveling, coffee, reading, movies, and music. Seriously, though--just ask my friends, and you'll discover that I will always be quoting some cheesy video, singing some disney song, or relating our conversation to a character of some movie! But other than hanging out with my friends and beautiful family, I am usually pushing myself academically; I love school and doing well with a goal to get into law school.

I really hope I get a chance to meet you--but feel free to stop me if you see me, because I would love to meet you! We could grab a coffee or have a disney-singing party!

Hi Everyone! I’m Jazzy Edwards, a Community Engagement Officer in Student Life and I am super excited to get y’all super excited about some super exciting things!

This is my first year at Cascadia and my first time being a part of student life. I am working toward a degree in biology, with an end goal of getting into (UW) medical school and work in pediatrics. Other than that, I grew up in Snohomish and have lived there my whole life. I love talking to people, so feel free to come up to me anytime, we can talk about super random things or not so random things! I also love traveling, hot chocolate, and super bad/cheesy movies! So where ever or whenever please don’t be shy, come on up and we can talk about whatever!

I can’t wait to see you all at Cascadia’s events!

I’m Luz Mangaser but you can call me Bong. I was born in Philippines and migrated to the state in 1991. I attended College of the Holy Spirit in the Philippines where I received my BA in Fine Arts Advertising. I’m currently working in the student life department at Cascadia Community College as Graphic Coordinator and a student at Everett Community College taking graphic design classes to reinforce my trade.  I have passion for the arts & graphic design. I love watching horror movies like the “Shining”, “Misery” and other Stephen King adapted movies. At home we have an annual “Lord of the Rings” family movie night. If you need creative help with posters, flyers and web banners, come see me.
