Meet Mulan!

Hey guys!

My name is Mulan Novilla, and I am Her Campus La Verne's new president! I've been in Her Campus since freshman year, and this year Flora asked me to take over! I learned about Her Campus on Pinterest the summer before I actually started college at La Verne. I was looking for dorm ideas and college hacks, and I noticed that Her Campus was an account that posted a lot of really neat stuff. When I attended ULV's club fair, I saw a Her Campus booth and immediately signed up.

I am a second-year junior Communications major with an emphasis in Public Relations. That sounds kind of weird, but it just means that I'm graduating a year early because I have a lot of credits from the AP classes I took in high school. I was on the Speech & Debate team all four years, which led me to decide to choose Communications because I like writing and presenting messages to an audience (and I also like graphic design and event planning).

I was born in the Philippines and moved here when I was almost 5 years old. I currently reside in Harbor City, a small town in the South Bay area. I love where I live because of the diverse neighborhoods that surround me (and the delicious variety of food). I live with my mom, my dad and my 11 year-old sister.

I love to travel to new places with my family and friends. Out of state, I've traveled to the Philippines, Cancun, Hawai'i, Texas, Arizona and Nevada.

I'm definitely a huge foodie and I love trying new, hipster places to take pictures. I usually drag my friends along, and we have so much fun together!

I especially love dessert places and cute cafes, but I don't really like coffee...I miss out on drinking the cute lattes and just end up taking photos of them.

I also have a website called Foodie Fridays, which features reviews of some food places that I've gone to. It's not updated, but the aesthetic is really cute!

That's all for now, but you can keep in touch with me on Instagram or Twitter!
