list bulletWhy did I choose Applied Mathematics: I chose this course because I really love Mathematics. I dreamed also to become a great mathematician someday. I want to impart my knowledge to those who are willing to learn more about the applications of different fields of Math.

list bulletAbout my college education: I learned a lot in every field of mathematics and it's applications. I think there is no subject that I can say difficult because our teachers are very good in discussing every topic. The difficult part is entering the University because the entrance exam and the interview are very difficult. There are a lot of applicants every year and few are chosen.
I am very happy because I choose this course is is very helpful foundation to pursue graduate studies.

list bulletMy current job: I now 25 and at that very young age I am a former Assistant Professor 1 at ABE International Business College (member of AMA Group of Companies).

Presently, I am in study leave because of the scholarship grant of the DOST-SEI.
I finished my BSAM 2010 and MA Math 2013 at WVSU also. Now, I am taking up my Ph.D. in Science Education major in Mathematics as a full time scholar sponsored by the DOST-SEI in the same university also.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: I am a very successful teacher because of the lessons that I learned from that prestigious university. I shared the knowledge that I learned to my students and itched this knowledge to their hearts and mind.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: I graduated March 2010, and after a week I become an Assistant Area Supervisor during the Census in Population and Housing (CPH 2010)

list bulletDo I recommend studying Applied Mathematics: There are lot of opportunities if you take BS Applied Math as your course since, when you are already fourth there is a majoring either you choose Teaching, Business or Banking. Actually, since you are mathematician digits doesn't matter they are also numbers even though they are not equal you can treat them equally.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: My advice to those students who want to take BS Applied Math is that the prerequisite is that of course you love Math and you will marry Math. If you do this then you will be a great Mathematician. Just in the saying in the movie "3 Idiots", "Follow excellence and success will chase you."
