APASA Asian Pacific Celebration Day

Mark your calendars for the UCSF Asian Pacific Celebration Day sponsored by APASA. This event will feature UCSF Asian Pacific Islander staff - live entertainment (see Priscilla Almares’s bio below) and visual artists. While supplies last, free Asian finger food will also be served.  

There will be a free raffle to win an original art piece (see image on attached flyer) created by APASA steering committee member, Diane Ngo. 

We look forward to seeing you as we celebrate Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month at UCSF! Feel free to forward this invitation to your friends and colleagues.

Let us know if you have any questions at APASA@ucsf.edu.


Priscilla Almares is a Filipino-American Pop/R&B, Christian Contemporary Artist and Worship Leader.  Having grown up in a musical family with her father touring the world as a vocalist and her mother as a concert pianist, Priscilla developed a passion for music early on.  She began competing in numerous singing competitions as early as age 6.  At age 15, she recorded and released her self-titled debut album where she co-wrote 10 of the 13 songs.  She has also performed in countless events in the San Francisco Bay Area and headlined the Budweiser Concert Fest in Chicago with the likes of Destiny’s Child, Babyface, Toni Braxton, and Brian McKnight. 

Besides her love for music, her greatest pride and passion is her family.  Priscilla is a devoted wife and mom to 4 beautiful girls.  She currently leads worship at New Hope Christian Fellowship in Hayward and is a Supervisor for the UCSF Pre-Access Department in Emeryville.
