Filipinx in Education Reaffirming Community Empowerment (FIERCE)


My name is Aiko Delos Reyes and I am with a student-led-outreach program from the University of California, Santa Barbara known as Filipinx in Education Reaffirming Community Empowerment (FIERCE). This program is hosted by Kapatirang Pilipino, a Filipino-interest organization on UCSB’s campus. This event is a two-day and one-night all expenses paid for program for 9th-11th grade Filipino students throughout California. Students will not have to pay any fees out-of-pocket, our organization will take care of all transportation, housing and meals for students. Students will participate in various academic and cultural workshops that allow them to be aware of resources in order for them to pursue educational opportunities after high school as well as from a cultural empowerment through higher education.

I would like to extend an invitation and strongly encourage for your students to participate in this program. I'm aware that your school has the Mabuhay club and FIERCE would love nothing more than if its members were to participate in our program this year. If you would like more information about this program please visit our website ( or feel free to get in contact with me or another representative, Ericalyn Roflox.

Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest Regards,
Aiko Delos Reyes
