Exceptional Academic Convocation 2013
The Special Academics Convocation revealed me those who have lived their whole lives in service more. Ateneo graduates who have made their university proud ahead of the whole region because of the distinctions they've made. I recognized from them that Ateneo is among the top colleges in the country not really because its graduates are available in the magazine's list of the best richest persons but because their lives and works can be found in the progress on this country. They may have spent a long time serving those because since Edmundo N. Nolasco, one of many speakers, believe that there can be zero greater manifestation of appreciation than to dedicate their very own lives to alter the world for Christ except maybe to die fighting for a cause.
The graduates received from different moments across Istituto superiore history make me realize that I have hardly any idea what my school stood to get. I know that " as being a man for othersвЂќ is one of the values that many Atenista tries to live by simply but We never really understand just how superb an impact it has on us, students. Really like a responsibility that has been handed over to us together with our college diplomas. A sort of trust that you might use your understanding for the betterment of mankind like the so many others before you may have. I hardly ever thought this possible but these Atenean graduates, Edmundo Nolasco, Jesse Robredo, Christian Monsod, Michelle Gamboa, and Resil Mojares, sure proved myself wrong.
Underneath all of the rumors of Atenistas getting arrogant, greedy, and wicked, Who would possess thought that there have been Atenistas who also also had a heart? We never believed I'd see a day when an Atenista like Christian Monsod and Michelle Gamboa would share his award together with the people who helped them really make a difference in the world. Neither could I at any time have imagined that an Ateneo graduate just like Michelle Gamboa would be contented to be a farmer and a baker Now I see that there is also a depth inside all our minds that forces us to get more than what titles...
