Why did I choose this school:
My father studied in this school since elementary to college and graduated from this school as a very proud “Atenean”. He wanted me to also finish my schooling here. So the same thing happened. I studied and finished my elementary, secondary, and college in this school.
About Ateneo De Manila University:
This is an expensive and exclusive school with a very high standard of education in the Philippines. Anybody who studies here is considered as coming from the elite and the rich. This is not true because the Jesuit Fathers, who manage this School provide scholarships to poor but deserving students. Its faculty is composed of the top and the best in their fields, come of who came Ivy League universities like Harvard University, UCLA, Yale, University, MIT, among others. It is a Catholic and private educational institution that excels in the fields of business and law. It has a graduate school for business and some of those who finished their doctorate and masters become teachers of this school. It becomes, therefore, a policy of this school to make the professors give the best that they could share with the students in terms of knowledge and experiences. As a result, the graduates of this school brings with them that distinct honor and glamour of the school.
The school compound is a very huge area consisting of more than 10 hectares of land. It has concrete buildings and air-conditioned classrooms, faculty rooms, offices, library, gym, chapel, canteen, and laboratory.
My current job:
I am now a part-owner of a restaurant in California, U.S.A., which I manage with my elder sister. Our Filipino delicacies and recipes are the favorites among our clients, both Filipinos and non-Pinoys. I handle the marketing, client relations, and other matters. I earn in dollars and the income is not limited I feel self-fulfilled and happy.
How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Since graduation I had already a work in the food business established by my mother in Metro Manila and in the industrial zones in Laguna. My mother let me handle various work so that I would have a well-rounded knowledge and insight of our business.
