After finishing high school, I opted to look for a job because my family could not afford to send me to college. I felt that my dream of becoming a professional just ended right there and then. I worked as a saleslady in a pharmacy.
After a few months, my aunt offered to pay for my tuition provided it would be within budget. The only school I knew then were Laguna College, San Pablo Colleges, Canossa and Trade. I had no idea about other institutions that offered vocational courses. Then my high school friend introduced me to MSC and encouraged me to take their scholarship exam.
I got the scholarship so I enrolled in MSC Computer Training Center, with the thought that after two years, I could land in a much better job. I finished the 2-yrs Office Management Course and was awarded as the Most Outstanding Student (Batch ’96). After graduation, MSC offered me a student assistant position and encouraged me to finish the 3-yr course which luckily I did.
During those times MSC tied-up with private and public elementary and secondary high schools and MSC provided computers and computer instructor for their students’ computer lessons. I became a computer instructor in several institutions, like Del Remedio Elementary School and DLSP. Having experienced the joys of teaching and having developed fondness for students eager to learn, I finally chose to take up Bachelor of Secondary Education and successfully graduated in 2004.
True to its principles, MSC welcomed me again, this time, as a high school teacher. I believe MSC was as proud as I was when I passed the licensure exam for teachers! I am really grateful that MSC had been my stepping stone in realizing my full potential and it developed me to be the educator I am today.
Dream big…MSC will help and encourage you achieve your dreams =)
