11th Day of April 2012 marked the Commencement of a new chapter of my life as a newly graduate of 
Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology
Centro Escolar University - Makati

Verdan Chua, me and our dad near the entrance of
The Manila Hotel.

These are my High School friends:
Sheena Importante (who by the way is graduating cumlaude, B.S. Nursing from HSI-De Lasalle Dasmarinas), Jay Pineda and Valerie Vallar.

These are my MassComm batchmates and friends.

Yes, I have a thing for chandeliers and this one may be legendary as it is part of the oldest pavilion of the Hotel... it might have witnessed a lot from our history.

Yes, the glory of being an awardee is having your name called as you walk last among all the graduates along that long aisle like a boss. lol!

The Administrative Council headed by the President and Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Cristina D. Padolina with our guest speaker, Hon. Aquilino Martin "Koko" Dela Llana Pimentel III.

Then after the Graduation we went straight to Robinsons Manila and ate at TGI Fridays!

The following are proofs of my hardwork, but don't get me wrong this more for my parents than it is for me.
I would also want to thank all my mentors for this one and I hope that I get to inspire other students.

Featured at the Manila Bulletin. My face may be blurred but it still is something right?

I have here the video of myself being awarded by the
President of Centro Escolar University.

To what it's worth... It's always the journey that matters more.
