The Devils’ Advocate

Got culture? Well, SUHi does! The Asian International Association is a family of Sweetwater staff and students of different cultural backgrounds. No, they are not just Asians, and one does not have to be Asian to join this club! With the help of the advisors, Mrs. Cruz and Ms. Manlangit as well as the students, AIA promotes the vast cultural diversity that SUHi has to offer by hosting various events for the school.

Over the years, this club has put in a lot of hard work on several major events such as Culture Night, Talent Shows and the Sweethearts Dance. This year’s AIA is run by Jenna Jacinto (President), Jenessa Magtoto (Vice President), Alyssa Doon (Secretary), Hanna Mesfin (Treasurer), Nemuel Cajudo (Public Relations), Matthew Peralta (Cultural Coordinator), and Angelica Fontanilla (Historian). Their goal for 2016-2017 is to reach out to the community and get involved outside of school to show what SUHi students are all about. Besides selling the popular and delicious boba from Lollicup and being in charge of events, AIA plans to unite people together, no matter what cultural background.

Now, AIA isn’t all just about work and volunteering. It’s a lot of fun and games with this group of people! From playing ice breaker activities during meetings, to going to Padres games, to having little bonding moments and potlucks, AIA knows how to get people together and have a good time. Want to join a club this year? Go AIA, all the way!
