Being the lone student in my course was quite unusual but extraordinary. My classes happened inside the faculty room or even in the library for most of my major courses. On graduation day, I stood alone wearing my academic regalia while the College Dean presented me to be conferred by the President, as the sole candidate of BA History.
Fulfilling experiences throughout my BU journey transformed me into becoming a mature and productive historian, equipped with the ideals of being maka-Diyos, makatao, makakalikasan, makabansa. For almost four years, this institution cultivated my raw mind to progress towards its humanitarian values: country, science and virtue. Even in a short span of time, its impact of lifelong learning to my current profession as a “healer of ignorance” is very clear. Indeed, BU let me realize how to stand for society’s greater good, whose aim is to preserve, enrich and strengthen Filipino national culture.
Now, I consider myself as an instrument to create future Filipinos who are historically and culturally aware. BU has made me the BEST that I can BE. After graduation, I served as a private junior and high school teacher, curriclum chair and academic head in San Ildefonso, Bulacan for three years. Now, I moved and am teaching in the tertiary education level. I am also an active member of the Philippine Historical Association.
