Coming from a poor family with five siblings, I gained a great sense of responsibility at a very young age. There were a lot of things I wanted in life that I never had the chance to have. This only taught me to be more appreciative and grateful with what I have and to never stop dreaming of what I could achieve. My family and I had been through several storms, which molded me into the resilient woman I am today. When I am not studying, I perform my duties as a Youth president and I sometimes give tutorial sessions to earn some money. In my spare time, I often read books, watch documentaries or put my imagination into words through writing. I have always envisioned myself to be the breadwinner of my family regardless of the job I get in the future. Despite the unfortunate circumstances in life, I always have my eyes on the goal. I strongly believe that when the pain is deep, I must go deep in prayers.

BS Medical Laboratory Science (BS MedTech)

Allyza Marie P. Pausal

Our Lady of Fatima University

I am Allyza Marie P. Pausal, currently taking BS Medical Laboratory Science in Our Lady of Fatima University. I am an Eagle scout of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) and have been serving the school for 4 years. I have been active in various extracurricular activities such as joining BSP campings and taking part in different organizations in school. I grew up in scouting and it was one of the highlights of my high school experience. I have met different people and learned a lot of things that were not taught inside the classroom. As a scout, I was able to develop my leadership skills, which I believe is a powerful skill to have. During my high school years, I have always tutored my friends and anyone who needed assistance with their studies. Among a lot of subjects, my favorites are chemistry and calculus. I also have great confidence in being able to sell anything, a skill that I have my Lola (grandmother) to thank for. I was raised by my grandmother and she taught me a lot of things at a very young age. I started as a street vendor until I became a saleswoman in a 'pasalubong' (souvenir) store. Everything I have experienced made me stronger and taught me to strive for greater heights. I hope to become a Medical Doctor someday, in God's perfect time. Being a Physician is my ultimate dream - a dream that I have envisioned ever since I was diagnosed with a disease. I aspire to become a Doctor to the Barrio (barangay) and make a difference in the healthcare system here in the Philippines. Most importantly, I want to serve the underserved. I also want to take this opportunity to give all the glory to the Lord and to extend my gratitude to the people behind this act of kindness. You're a hope and light to students who need it most.

Growing up, I was always reminded that there were things that I have to work hard for, which includes the dream of taking my family out of poverty. I never viewed life as a constant struggle but rather a continous progress. Amidst all the challenges, I strive to become the best version of myself. Although I was very timid, I always stood up for what is right and for those who were being stepped on. I graduated SHS on the top of my class and have been known to be really capable when it comes to ICT. I have also occasionally joined contests to improve my skills.

I'm glad that I am halfway in reaching my dream of becoming a successful CPA. When I was in my grade school, every time the teacher asks me what I wanted to be in the future, I always answered them "to become an astraunot". Becoming an astronaut was really my wildest dream. I wanted to explore the space and live with all of my mind's dreams. But as I grow up and saw all the demands of life, I became practical. Instead of taking engineering course, I took accountancy program since it is a cheaper course. And I know that there are a lot of opportunities waiting for me if I finish this program. However, my desire to explore the space still remains in my heart. It never fades. I'm a typical guy. A family-oriented and not a self-centered man. I study hard but of course, still have time for my social life. I always have the heart for people. I wanted to serve them the best thing I can. And I am just a one-call-away friend.

During my grade school and junior High school, I made myself active academically. I had joined several competitions such as Quiz bees, impromptu speaking, poster making and other academic competitions in order for me to enhance my confidence and skills and develop my God-given talents. I also love travelling. I wanted to travel the world and taste the different cuisines from different countries together with my family. I wanted to spoil them with the things they deserved. I also wanted to organize my own charities and scholarship programs soon as I get a job just like what ma'am Jamilah did. I would like to share every success that I get to all the people in need. Playing crossword puzzles, soduko and 4-pics-one word game are also one of my favorite past time. Maybe it sounds corny and boring but this is my own definition of fun.
