After the success of your thesis, what are your initial plans after college? 

‘Honestly, I don’t know pa. Siguro magre-rest muna. Siyempre hindi rin naman biro mag-aral. So feeling ko magpapahinga, hahanapin ko muna sarili ko. Tapos, gusto ko i-pursue yung passion ko which is to work in media or theater so, ayon. Pero siguro magre-rest muna talaga. And once na makapag-work syempre the goal is to give back sa parents, ‘di ba?’


How do you feel now that you’re a few months away from marching in QPAV? 

Gusto kong mag-slow down yung moment. Kasi before parang excited ka na eh. Gustong-gusto ko na grumaduate. Pero once na ngayon na tapos na, gusto mo nang mag-slow down ‘cause I [realized] we only have less than a month left para grumaduate. And after college, ‘tong mga taong ‘to na sobrang naging importante sa’kin hindi ko na alam kailan ko na sila ulit mahahagilap. Busy na sa work. May mga future endeavors na.”


Do you have any advice for your juniors who are currently in the process of writing their thesis?

”I hope ‘yung topic na pinili niyo is something you guys are passionate about because once na gusto niyo talaga yung topic niyo, ipaglalaban niyo talaga siya. And ano kapit lang kasi […] hindi siya madali so kapit lang talaga and everything will be worth it in the end. Totoo ‘yun. As in magugulat ka na lang na, ‘Shocks, ang layo na ng narating ko’ So trust the process […] trust lang. Kaya niyo ‘yan.
