Membership Director

Ariana Satina

Born and raised in Northern Virginia and currently residing in Washington, DC, Ariana Satina considers herself to be a DMV native. She was brought up by resourceful, hard-working, and self-reliant Filipino parents originally from Mindanao and Luzon. They instilled in her those values and beliefs and turned their American dream into a reality. 
 
Ariana followed her own dream to learn more about and immerse herself in the world by studying abroad. In 2018, she graduated from Franklin University Switzerland with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication and Media Studies and a Minor in Psychology. After graduating, Ariana hit the ground running to give back for all that she had received and to strive to make a change for the better–she served as a missionary. She was assigned to labor in the Visayan region of the Philippines. It was a transformative period in her life that she attributes to refining her. Ariana whole-heartedly completed 18 months of missionary service with professional fluency in Cebuano, a better understanding of the culture, a stronger love for service and the human family, and more hope for humankind.  Since then, she’s implemented different aspects of her education and experiences in work as an Intern, a Public Relations & Social Media Consultant, and a Design Assistant. She recently accepted a Program & Operations Manager position with the government and plans to use such to advocate for female and minority, small business owners.
Outside of work and responsibilities, Ariana thoroughly enjoys experiencing and savoring as much of God’s gift of a world as possible and utilizing her voice and body.  Her voice for contributing to deep conversations, animation and commercial voice-over endeavors, and various indie and R&B melodies and harmonies.  Her body for listening to others’ life stories, traveling in and out of the country, eating diverse cuisines that exclude peanuts, and dancing to hip-hop, Latin, and festival beats.  Life is meant to be lived and learned from, and Ariana aims to do just that.  Hinay hinay, basta kanunay.
 
Have questions regarding FYP-DC recruitment and membership?  Communications, media, or voice-over inquiries?  In need of realistic positivity?  Feel free to email Ariana at ariana.satina@fypdc.org.
