I'm Angelyn Tabalba, a current third-year student at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) where I’m getting a degree in Journalism and Media studies and a minor in Criminal Justice. In addition to being a full time student, I’m apart of other student organizations. I am the Social Media Coordinator for the Residence Hall Association, the President of the National Residence Hall Honorary, the Asian Community Development Council, and now, a co-host for 91.5 FM the Little Grass Shack.
More intimately, I am a child of immigrant parents who reign from the Philippine Islands. In 1990, my parents petitioned to come to United States and decided to move to Honolulu, Hawaii, where I was born and raised. Growing up in a state so extremely diverse and naturally beautiful, I have come to know how fortunate I am living in a site so humbling and rich in history. I funneled this love for Hawaii in all that I did. In the papers I wrote for school, in joining the Ewalu club at UNLV, and now, being a co-host on a Hawaiian radio station.
Little Grass Shack was my first real life opportunity doing anything in my major. Getting connected with Island Emory has been the best experience as a student here at UNLV. Tune into Little Grass Shack every Saturday afternoon at 12pm for the best of island music.
