On my first step at the front gate of this prestigious university, I wondered how my life would run knowing that I will encounter a diverse group of students who are good at almost everything. I asked myself, “Can I stand out in this crowd? Am I really capable to take the lead?” But there’s no turning back, I need to take this path. I was a Senior High student back then. I became a lot of things during my SHS years. I became a student-leader-performer. My leadership ability was tested and enhanced for I was given a chance to lead the Senior High Department as their Student Council President. Moreover, it did not stop there because I was also able to improve my skills in performing arts through acting and writing scripts and monologues as an active member of LPU-Stagers. Most especially, this university’s fire of fortitude enlightened me to see my worth not just a student but as a competitive young professional in my chosen field of specialization. And now, I still chose to take the lead as I am taking up Bachelor of Science in International Travel and Tourism Management which allows me to participate in community extension activities as a passionate leader and compete in various contests, representing both my college and LPU Batangas. I know that here in LPU, I won’t just be academically inclined, but I will also be morally and professionally upright.
