GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Riana Youngken, a member of the Pinoy Educational Partnership at SF State, paid her respects to the late Boholano Mabalon at the event. “I personally have felt impacted by the work that she has done to preserve Filipino-American history,” she said.
From a classified genius to a lovable person, Dr. Dawn Bohulano Mabalon will be missed dearly by those closest to her and even the ones who didn’t know her personally. Her legacy will continue to inspire the youth to give a voice to the voiceless.
“I think it is very necessary to see women like her because she just really broke the mold in many different ways of being a brown woman in her field. It’s important to see her face as a representative of Filipino-Americans,” Youngken said.
