I borrowed this wonderful picture from Sir Edge Angeles. :) I can’t believe I actually got the honor to emcee this event, and in the ampitheater to boot that! :D The podium really does wonders to suppress stage fright. hahaha. Even if I barely know these
students graduates (since most of my students are not from the graduated batch), there’s something about seeing them all ready for the world clad in their ecru garments and sablay, getting their diplomas with their parents/ grandparents/ brothers/ sisters/ guardians and singing the UP Naming Mahal. Based on what I felt, I now understand how the more senior teachers must have felt. I owe a million thank yous to all my previous teachers.
The speeches from the guest of honor and the class valedictorian also served as an important reminder to all of us: That graduating from UP is more of a challenge, rather than an advantage. Mabuhay ang mga bagong inhinyero ng bayan! :)
