“What was the most frightening experience you’ve ever had?”

“My [most] frightening experience was […] something about myself. Last year, when I was in second year, I experienced subjects that were getting really difficult and it was a time that I was getting very emotional. It was during that time that I faced the challenge of losing my scholarship here in UST. […] There was a time that I really tried not to speak with my friends; I did not speak to people and it was getting difficult.”

“What are you most afraid of?”

“Based on that experience, I guess I can say that I’m mostly afraid of failure itself. As much as I’d like to say that failure teaches you things; failure teaches you how to handle your life. I would say that it’s still really difficult to face this kind of experience because this actually triggers many things in your life, especially if you’re a very ambitious person. [If] you want to do many things in life, you’re going to [have to] face these failures. It’s really very scary.”

“Do you see fear as a weakness or strength?”

“Actually it’s a double-edged sword. Sometimes, it’s a weakness. […] However, there’s a strength to this fear. This is what will make our framework wonderful. It will make our personality better.”
