2012 valedictory address

Gusto rin kitang batiin dahil hindi mo nakita ang mga grado bilang sukatan ng iyong pagkatao. Bagkus, mas pinahalagahan mo ang mga aral na napulot mula sa iyong mga karanasan at ang epekto ng mga ito sa iyong pagkatao. Mas naunawaan mo ang kahulugan at saysay ng iyong buhay, dahil nakita mo ang ugnayan nito sa buhay ng iba. Hindi mo nakita ang iyong sarili na angat sa kanila, dahil sa iyong pagtingin, ikaw ay kapantay ng lahat. Hindi ka lumipad sa ere sa kabila ng iyong mga natutunan, bagkus ay ginamit mo ang mga ito kasama ng iyong mga kakayahan upang paghusayin ang nalalaman ng iba. – KAHLILLE JOLLY L. SERANILLA, BS Community Development, Batch 2012

…When we work with the less privileged members of our communities –and we help them reach new heights in their struggle for better lives and for dignity, for independence and freedom. We bring LIFE to humanity! We take humanity to a higher level of its existence and new level of achievement. What could be more noble, more meaningful, more beautiful than being part of this work for humanity! –Ms. Evelyn Balais-Serrano

rainier almazan

Rainier Almazan knew where of he speaks when DQ was mentioned in his story-telling. He might have been ‘disqualified’ from a course of his first choice, but that was the anticipated compromise because of his political involvement. No regret for him though, as what shaped him to be an activist also became the crowning glory of his college days: his active membership in the UP Student Catholic Action.
