  • Describe life on campus. I like it. I learn a lot every day, especially about psychology. Describe Crush ng Bayan. One who is good-looking and who should be a role model. What is your biggest challenge in school? How do you cope with it? I’m especially stressed when I have one exam after another for my major subjects. I have no other choice but to study hard to cope with the pressure. What is your biggest reward? I became one of the models for ABS-CBN, which is in search of role models for the youth. I made it to the top three. I was given the chance to walk on the ramp and do print ads for Props. Why did you choose your course and your school? My school is suitably located. My course helps me understand why people act the way they do and helps me handle difficult problems I encounter in life. What is your motto as a student? Study hard. When you study hard, you learn more. What is your ultimate goal? To be a successful psychologist abroad, particularly in Spain, where my parents are, or in London, where my aunt is. How is school helping you become a better person? I learn so much in school. Now I have a better understanding of people’s behavior, why they act and react in certain ways. How do you see yourself five years from now? I see myself as a successful psychologist, able to help a lot of people by giving them the right advice.
