My first step at NTC was way back in 2010 – I was a transferee from Iloilo then. I can still remember those “neophyte” moments in school, where everything is new, where I certainly feel like a complete stranger in an unknown world. I tend to compare my previous school with NTC, pointing out the facilities, the governance of the administration or even the kind of teachers that I have.
But then again, time performed its magic. In a matter of months, I finally came into that moment of belongingness when I realized that it’s only myself who was hampering that willingness in me to embrace the changes in my life.
“The only limitations you have in your life are the ones that you, yourself have set.” In my 4-year stay at NTC this is one thing that I realized. NTC have taught me to trust myself, that I am far beyond my boundaries, that I am limitless, that I can go farther than my expectations.
With all the achievements that I have reaped, I can truly say, that I owe it to my professors and mentors at NTC. They were my source of inspiration. They have become a challenge to me, that indeed, gave me that strong drive to push through despite the towering standards that they have set for me to conquer.
When I became the Editor-in-Chief of Fiat Lux, I was able to prove my worth as a person. I came to realize and understand the purpose of my being as an NTCian- that as a student, I can do something that would not just benefit myself, but would give service to my fellow students and to the institution where I belong at large.
With all the trainings, activities and programs that the school has offered, I can truly say that NTC has prepared me to become a holistic individual-somebody who is not just equipped academically, and physically but also a person who has been exposed to values orientation and community service.
If I am to describe my journey as an NTCian, I would really say this, “ NTC has pounded me along the way to perfection, refined my edges and has polished me perfectly like that of a DIAMOND.”
