“Success is not always built on success. It’s built on failure. It’s built on frustrations. Sometimes it’s built on catastrophe” – Sumner Redstone
As I look back, I couldn’t be more thankful to God for letting me live my dream of working in an International Cruise Ship. It was only a blurred dream before, no assurance that after taking my degree program in Cruise Line Operations in Hotel Services that I will be given the chance to work as a Receptionist at one of the well-known Cruise Ships in Asia today. All of these blessings would never be possible without the help of LPU (Lyceum of the Philippines University Batangas), which served as my second home for four years. This was the place that taught me how to become a professional Hospitality Practitioner. I will never forget all the times I spent at this wonderful university especially all of my professors as they honed e to become what I am today. I can justify that choosing LPU Batangas was the right choice for me and for my chosen career as they will not only give you quality education but would also develop your character with all the necessary traits to become professional in your chosen field. In LPU, you will not only learn your subjects objectively but you will be trained to apply it and test your skills to the limit.
As a student, achieving the highest recognition as Summa Cum Laude and being the Top 3 Most Outstanding Student in LPU will always be one of my greatest achievements during my college days as it became the fruits of my hard work and sacrifices. I still remember all the sleepless nights I studied just to pass the exams, all those challenges that made me want to give up my dreams because the pressure and stress overtook my life already. Achieving such recognition was not an easy task to do as it required a lot of time, effort and commitment. There will always be people along the way who will underestimate your capacity and will not believe that you can do something great. I also encountered this kind of people but instead of looking down on myself, I used it as my catapult to move forward. I also surrounded myself with positive people who supported me. This includes my family, friends and professors who believed in my skills and #ButiNalangNagLyceumAko
