◈ Studied BS in Marine Biology
◈ At Mindanao State University - Iligan Institute of Technology

list bulletAbout my college education: It was the best, the dives, scientific names, the overnights, the teachers and the experience – it was totally amazing. We’ve learned a lot of things that only we could relate (scientific names of fish, mollusks, inverts, etc.). Though it was difficult because we have to study all about oceans, we still have time to enjoy (not to mention that we enjoyed a lot seeing marine organisms). We analyze specimens at the laboratory at the same time we travel to places for sampling.

list bulletMy current job: I am not yet a graduate but I know that there are a lot of opportunities out there.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Marine Biology: Yes, I would highly recommend this course.
