Philippine Model Congress 2014
September 13 - 14, 2014
Philippine Model Congress is a two day congress especially dedicated to the Filipino youth. The said event believes that the youngsters can innovate change and develop the system of our nation.
It is a great opportunity to expose oneself in this kind of environment full of smart innovators and changemakers. I’m glad to be part of of these 400 delegates chosen to represent their respective provinces and universities. I even got the chance to present a bill entitled Academic and Skills Education Bill of 2014. The bill fails to push through to the Plenary Session because the votes didn’t reach the 2/3 of the delegates. I guess, my bill is too ambitious! haha
Nevertheless, I’m really thankful to meet new people with different perspectives. PMC 2014 isn’t just informative and empowering but an inspiration to push forward for a better Philippines!
Being seventeen has taught me to leave my comfort zone, take risks, overcome my fears, ignore the doubters and accept the things that I can’t even change. I’ve learned to understand the every aspects of the situation before having a prioritized decision. Most importantly, I’ve discovered that I’m resilient. I’ve managed to stay composed despite the hurdles and setbacks.
From all the opportunities and experiences, I’ve grown so much as an individual. I’m really thankful for the people who supported me in every step of the way and to those who tried to bring me down. It is not always a sunny day. I have regret for not treating the present as if it’s going to be the last. And this time, I’m going to make each day as if it’s going to be the best.
I will always remind myself to keep things in perspective and stay optimistic.
Nevertheless, I am about to start a new chapter of adventures, hopes and dreams. It’s gonna be a hell of a ride!
Random shots from last month’s Student Media Congress! Oh well, I’m definitely missing tumblr.
Treat life like a ferris wheel ride, you must get past the fear to enjoy the view.
Life has been very busy lately. School, extracurricular, meetings and a bit of social life. I can say that i’m actually drain with all the exhaustion that college brings whether physically, mentally and emotionally. I just hope that everything will turn out according to His plan.
This is indeed an obligatory post telling you that i’m still doing well in life.
