It’s that special time of the year again! The Partnership for Pre-Professional Pilipin@s is proud to hold the 5th Annual Charity Golf Tournament!! This is a yearly event that is open to everyone and anyone, aiming to foster social camaraderie, good sportsmanship, and most importantly raising funds for a selected charity!

Proceeds will go to this year’s beneficiary: BOOKS FOR THE BARRIOS – a nonprofit California corporation run by volunteers that collect school English reading books and educational learning aids in the United States and deliver them to students in the Philippines. In addition, Books for the Barrios establishes and maintains world-class learning institutions, while providing professional teacher training programs to improve educational delivery. A great
number of these schools and libraries have been severely damaged or destroyed by the recent Typhoon Haiyan.

Proceeds from this tournament will be used specifically for the re-establishmentof two libraries in Carigara Leyte.
Our event has three aims: 1) To aid in the Typhoon relief efforts of Books for the Barrios; 2) To serve as a way for our corporate sponsors to advertise and publicize their company by being a benefactor of our charity event; and 3) To operate as a means for P4 members and UC Berkeley
students to network with professionals in their respective fields of interest.

We look forward to seeing you there!

P4 Alumni/Current Member Spotlight for the Week of October 13-20, 2014: Matthew Galang

Talofa Party People! My name is Matthew Galang and I’m a 2013 Cal/P4 Alum. I spent my first year out of undergrad teaching first grade and I am currently finishing up all my law school applications. I joined P4 my first semester at Cal as an associate and then was a Partner for three years, serving as the Director of External Affairs Law, Executive Director, and Director of Internal Affairs. P4 unquestionably played a huge role in my college experience. Some of my closest college friends and most memorable college moments came as a result of my involvement with P4. Additionally, the numerous resources and events that the club offered me as a pre-law student truly confirmed my desire to attend law school and become a lawyer.

I could spend hours giving ya’ll advice on college and talking about how much P4 can help you. However, I’ll just leave ya’ll with what I think are some of the most important things to remember as an undergrad.

1. Quality over quantity. I’m a firm believer that it is better to be heavily involved with one or two clubs than it is to be lightly involved with numerous clubs. Whether or not its P4, chose a club or two that you really care about and truly invest yourself in it during your four years at Cal. As your resume becomes filled with accomplishments achieved with this club, your capacity for dedication will be illustrated. This is something that employers love.

2. P4 will give you many opportunities to network with professionals and these professionals will certainly preach about the importance of networking. Networking is undoubtedly an important tool and it is great to get meet people and get your name out there. However, at the end of the day, hard work is your strongest networking tool. Nothing grabs the attention of people in high places like tangible results and productivity.

3. Don’t forget to have fun. Party till the break of dawn every now and then or more

P4 Alumni/Current Member Spotlight for August 25-31, 2014: Keiz Cam

Hello to the beautiful/handsome person reading this at the moment! For those who may not know me, my name is Keizzel Camacho and I’m currently a rising Senior (woohoo) majoring in Media Studies and double minoring in Public Policy and South and South and South East Asian Studies. However, before I go into my spiel about P4 and my experience in the organization, I want to share one of my favorite quotes,

“Be careful who you spend your time with. Wasted time is worse than wasted money.”

When I look back on my past three years at Cal, this quote couldn’t be any more relevant. I’ve been involved in P4 since my first year at Cal and i’m so grateful for my experience. Because of P4 I’ve met some of my closest friends at Cal, gained professional knowledge, and ultimately a space that I can consider family.

Honestly, I joined P4 by accident during my first year at Cal. I say accident because I never anticipated getting involved in the Pilipino community, yet alone a professional organization. This was until I had a conversation with current P4 partners at the time and ended up applying to be an Associate.

Eventually my experiences led me to apply and become the Co-Director of Marketing and PR (2012-2013) and P4’s Executive Director (2013-2014). The skills I learned from P4 allowed me to intern with Bay Area start-up companies such as the Late Night Option (now Spoonrocket) and even extern for Intuit. Currently, I’ve just returned from studying abroad in the UK and exploring Europe!

To anyone looking into the organization, I just want to say don’t be afraid to join because you’re not Pre-Law, Pre-Business, and Filipino for that matter. P4 is an inclusive space that is open to everyone! P4 has been such an integral part of my college experience, and I can’t imagine what it would have been like without it. I’ve gained more than I ever expected out of the organization, and it just goes to show that, you only get as much from something as you put in.

Some advice I would give to anyone reading this is:

– In whatever you do, remember to treat people with kindness, it goes a long way.

– Don’t be afraid to talk to people because they might seem like they’re more “successful,” “older,” etc. Those are such subjective aspects. What matters most is your attitude in approaching a situation.

– Don’t waste so much time overthinking situations and their outcomes because by the time you reach a conclusion the opportunity might not be there anymore.

P4’s Weekly Current Member/Alumni Spotlight for August 18-24, 2014: Abigail Balingit

Greetings everybody!  My name is Abigail Balingit and I am P4’s Director of Marketing/Public Relations for 2014-2015.  I got into P4 during my first semester of my freshman year as an associate.  Coming into P4, I literally had no clue of anything except that I wanted to get into Haas and I wanted to do marketing.  My jaw pretty much dropped when I realized that the partners wanted to do resume critiques right in the beginning of the year.  As a naive freshie, I had no idea that having interview skills, being adept at networking, and producing top-notch resumes would be part of my immediate future.  It’s because of P4’s support that I’ve grown so much as a student and an aspiring career woman.  Don’t think that P4 is strictly business, though!   We work hard and play hard.  From going on frequent boba trips to jamming to Childish Gambino (s/o to Justin! haha!), we’ve all become close friends.  I’ve found mentorship through P4 and a family (or rather, a p4mily) away from home.  During this past summer, I’ve been fortunate enough to intern for Gracenote, a music and video database company in Emeryville.  In addition to my internship, I’ve been working as an administrative assistant for UC Berkeley’s Office of Undergraduate Admissions.  You can catch me at the front desk answering student questions or at my cubicle for the rest of the year!  It’s been an amazing summer filled with food crawls and concerts, but I’m excited for my sophomore year to kick off!  Here’s some advice for the fall semester: Step outside of your comfort zone.  Heck, steer clear of it!  Norman Vincent Peale said it best: “Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”  Take it from someone that’s always struggled with a fear of failure, don’t let your insecurities get in the way of achieving your full potential.

P4’s Weekly Current Member/Alumni Spotlight for August 11-17, 2014: Angela Francisco

Hi Everyone! I’m Angela Francisco, a rising second year intending to double major in Business Administration and South & Southeast Asian Studies. I am thrilled to be part of Core 14 as Director of Philanthropy & Community Service (PACS). I joined P4 Fall semester of last year because it was the Pil Org that best fit my interests and future goals. I did not know that it would become so much more. P4 gives me large scale opportunities in a small scale setting. Growing and learning professionally with a tight-knit group of individuals has been refreshing and rewarding. I have gained a better grasp of professional skills, like personal pitches, interview tips, and resume critiques. I have had the opportunity to meet incredible people, professionals, alumni, and students alike, with amazing goals and ambitions. P4 is more than an organization for me; it’s like another family. In just a year, I have grown immensely, surrounded by people who, while striving for their own success, also wish to see your success and growth. It has pushed me out of my comfort zones and forced me to tackle some of my fears (like public speaking and networking, to name a few.) It has also given me great college memories. From winning a game for being a troll(haha), to setting foot on a golf course for the first time and driving a golf cart, and to just having people to talk about life to or sing songs in which the lyrics were altered to fit your situation(-__-), my experience at CAL would not be the same without it.  I’ll really miss being P4 baby but I cannot wait to see what the coming school year has in store. I’ve learned so much but there’s always more room to continue learning and growing. During first semester, someone told me “Don’t be afraid to surprise yourself.” I have surprised myself countless times since then. I have surprised myself in seeing how much P4 has played a role in my life to seeing that slowly, but surely, I am getting closer towards where I want to be. Though that finish line may still be far, as one of my favorite quotes states, “Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best.” Enjoy the rest of summer and don’t be afraid to let your dreams take you to infinity…and beyond. Go bears & P4, fo’ sho!
