Tenny Pan

Hi! My name is Tenny Pan and I’m currently a senior in the College of Arts and Sciences. I’m planning on majoring in Microbiology and hope to attend graduate school. When I’m not working as a peer advisor, I like to stay involved with the Pre-Medical Association and volunteer at the Hawaiian Humane Society. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, video games, movies, and the occasional hike.

Aloha! My name is Puna Sabagala and I'm currently a Senior in the Art:Studio program. I am planning on being a part of UH Manoa's graduate division after receiving my bachelor's degree. I strongly believe that 'A body in motion stays in motion'. So on my free time I spend my time hiking, dancing, working out at the gym, and enjoying the beautiful beaches that Hawaiʻi has to offer. My main goal as a peer advisor is to give you the tools you need to make your college experience both enjoyable and beneficial. It is my pleasure to be working with you all soon.
