Padayon: UPAAS Scholar Kate Sta Rita graduates cum laude

Kate Sta Rita, Bachelor in Elementary Education, cum laude, UP Diliman, 2018.

The University of the Philippines Alumni Association (Singapore) is beaming with pride as it celebrates the graduation of its scholar Kate Lyne Soleil Sta Rita from the degree of Bachelor of Elementary Education (Science and Health), cum laude at the University of the Philippines Diliman. She marched alongside 4,600 other students during the university’s 107th commencement exercises held last June 24, 2018.

She is a member of the UP Special Education Council where she served as the council’s Publicity Committee Head during the academic year 2017-2018. She is now fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming a teacher in Science and Math at the Miriam College.

For this, she exclaims “For the past few years, I had wandered the vast maze of my university hallways looking for the correct classroom. I kept wandering around, quietly panicking, knowing class was starting but powerless to figure out what to do. Now that I’m finally a degree holder after studying for 18 years (2000-2018), I know that I’ll still be doing the same – wandering a vast maze of hallways trying to get to classes. The only difference is I’m no longer a student, but a teacher.”

Padayon, Kate! Mabuhay ka, Iska!
