D: I started singing when I was 5 years old and it continued until college so I expected that I will be taking up a music course, but to my surprise, I got interested in English and literature so when I was about to take my qualifying exam for my major, my first choice was English, next was Literature, then third was music. I passed all the exams, but when I was about to be interviewed for the last screening for my major in English, I got terribly sick so I chose music and I didn't regret it.
D: When I had my practicum, meaning I will be teaching outside, and I was assigned to a public school in Tondo, my first impression was that the students were a bit naughty.
D: To appreciate every single blessing that I'm learning and to consider all my experiences whether good or bad as a blessing.
D: To be a risk-taker. To try to be brave in trying new things.
D: Nope. My family supported me all the way. Actually, during my graduation, I asked my dad if he was the one to choose my course, what would it be, and he told me, "I wanted you to be a dentist."
