How is my resilience at this point in my life? How can I improve my resilience in my day-to-day life?

Right now, I feel as though my resilience has been worse as compared to before the pandemic. I am stuck with my own thoughts as I do not interact with others as much anymore, hence always questioning and second-guessing myself. As mentioned in the podcast with Dr. Gina Hechanova, “as the context changes, our resilience also changes” and “it used to be associated as a skill born with, but now it has evolved into something that can be learned from…


Mr. Nate Dy-Liacco gave us very useful advice for our journey in college and future career choices. He mentioned how our course, Communications Technology & Management gives us so many choices as it covers a vast majority of topics. As he talked about his experiences, and how his plans shifted as time went on, it helped me realize that I too will experience change whether I may like it or not.

This is something I needed to understand slowly as I grew up because when I was…


I think most students can relate to how I feel about the online learning setting we have due to the pandemic. Most if not all of us are struggling to transition to this new lifestyle as we have to play our role in the household while also making sure we don’t fall behind in class. One benefit I had during this online set-up was the flexibility of the classes. I was able to have my own schedule during the days we wouldn’t have synchronous classes. I felt I had the freedom to decide how fast I wanted to go compared…


If you told me 4 years ago that I would be studying in Ateneo, I would not have believed you. My whole family studied in De La Salle University, and most of my parent’s friends are from there too so I thought I would be going there as well. When studying for college entrance tests, I still beleived that I wanted to go to La Salle.
