The Philippine Daily Inquirer published today an article I wrote (Section C, page 5). It is one of a hundred stories the University of the Philippines (UP), my alma mater, publishes in major dailies in celebration of its centenary this year. I recounted the roller coaster ride I took to get a slot in the university, and eventually a UP education, arguably the best education one can get in my homeland.
Unfortunately it is not available online and you have to buy the paper to read it!
Updated: click the photo above to read the article. I especially like the artwork!
