I have always been proud of my Filipino roots. We have to admit that the world is tougher for Filipinos but we always put a smile on our faces despite the challenges we face ahead. There’s so much to do yet the traffic in Metro Manila can delay our activities. As for those living in the provinces, sometimes, it sucks that we can’t have what we want because they’re not available in our beloved hometown.
As for engineering school, it’s either you’re smart enough to survive engineering or not. Normally, it takes a student five years to finally get the diploma but for others, it takes them six, seven, eight, nine or ten. Hey it happens. But if there’s one thing I noticed about every Filipino engineering student, it’s how they make their college experience worth remembering. Filipinos just know how to have fun in engineering school even if life can be hell as an engineering student.
This may also apply to any Filipino student too. If you’re a Filipino, you can learn a new language like Tagalog to understand this article.
