S. F.
◈ Studied Bachelor in Fine Arts
◈ At Philippine Women's University
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletAbout my college education: Being a fine arts student was my passion. I came from UPLB with a medical degree in Veterinary medicine. I shifted to fine arts while I was in my 4th year of medicine. I was only forced to take it and I honestly I didn't enjoy every moment of it. I excel in humanities though average when it comes to science etc. But being a fine arts student gave me a fulfilling education. I excel in everything I do and even become a student leader.

list bulletMy current job: Design consultant in Makati

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: For about three months

list bulletDo I recommend studying Fine Arts: For those who love art this would be a perfect course. in a sense that it is liberating and fun. in work you have to take extra effort reading about designs and think outside the box. When people say you are different, embrace it because being different is what we all wanted to be.

Use your connections and be passionate about your job always. Love it and be enthusiastic about it.
