President : Enzo Regala (He/Him)
Hey yall! My name is Enzo (he/him) and I’m honored to be serving as this year’s President! I am a junior information science major and a technology entreprenurship minor. I moved to Maryland from the Philippines when I was 8 so I can speak Tagalog pretty well. I joined FCA because I wanted to be more in touch with my culture and I’ve been very fortunate to find a family within FCA and have been able to serve as freshman rep and sports coord! When i’m not doing FCA related things, I like to play basketball, watch anime, play games, and listen to OPM. Please feel free to talk to me about literally anything and I can’t wait to meet you all!

Check it out 😉
