It's time to meet your Ate's and Kuya's

Name: Joie Soberano

Age: 20

School: University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)

Hobbies and Interests: Reading and writing, dancing ballet and jazz, doing volunteer work and traveling

Position: Overall Administrator

Virtue: Respect

Why am I respectful:

I always make it a point to be respectful because I believe that everyone deserves to be respected regardless of their race, gender or status in life. Saying kind and polite words such as “Thank You”, “Your Welcome” & “Please” should be embedded into everyone’s vocabulary. It shows that you respect the person you are talking to, and it speaks a lot about a person’s character. People will respect you if you show respect to them in return ☺

Name: Sara Badr

Age: 20

School: University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)

Hobbies and Interests: watching movies, acting, playing indoor soccer and travelling

Position: Art Director

Virtue: Steadfast

Why am I steadfast:

In whatever I do, I see to it that I do good in what I put my heart into. I engage in a lot of activities in school, such as theatrical plays and sports, along with my heavy-loaded academics. In all of those, I set goals and whatever I do must lead me to achieve those. If you show this kind of determination to be the best and to never let anything put you down in the process of getting to where you want to be, people will eventually follow. ☺

Name: Kristle Victoria Agbayani

Age: 20

School: University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)

Position: Featured Writer

Watching movies, Traveling (going to the beach and to far places), Dogs, Hanging out with friends, Reading, Playing recreational sports

Virtue: Open Minded

Why I am Open Minded:

When establishing a relationship, it means that you are welcoming others into your life.
In order for the relationship to work, you must not only think of yourself, but think more
about the people you are in the relationship with. A relationship of any kind—whether of
family, friendship, professional or love will only work if all who are involved are open to
the thoughts, ideas, and feelings of each other.

Open mindedness is the key to keeping a strong and lasting relationship with others
because it is though it that we understand and truly get to know them.

Name: Juliene Lim

Age: 22

School: University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)

Position: Peer Councilor

Hobbies: wall climbing, shopping, studying, flag football, going to the beach, spending time with friends and family

Virtue: Trustworthy

Why I am Trustworthy:

I enjoy chatting with my friends about life, love, family, and school. I can also be a good listener. I have a few close friends that are comfortable sharing their secrets with me. I can be fun and out going, yet, I can also be serious. I enjoy learning and trying out new things.

Name: John Almendralejo

Age: 20

School: University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)

Hobbies and Interests: Going to the gym, outdoor and water sports, extreme adventures, traveling, and clubbing

Position: Webmaster

Virtue: Gutsy

Why am I gutsy:

They say a gutsy person is ready to do what must be done and endure what must be endured for the greater good. I guess that is me! I face life’s challenges wholeheartedly because I know God made all of these to test me. And oh boy! I’ve been through quite a number now. I see them as life’s greatest lessons that should be learned and experienced for my betterment as a person.

Name: Ruther Chan
Age: 21 years old

School: University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P)

Position: Head advisor

Virtue: Noble

Why I am noble:

In this polluted society, it is important to always stand for what is right even if circumstances require you to lie. One must make sure that his integrity is intact for the choices that he or she makes. He should also learn to live in a high moral character for it can be rewarding. Honor, courage, and generosity for oneself are important in living a noble life.
