A Tapulanga Foundation scholar for 12 years, Christine Diaz shares her typical day.
At 5:30 A.M., her alarm clock goes off, she gets out of bed and takes a quick shower, eats her breakfast which is usually "adobo" (marinated meat) with rice and leaves the house after an hour for school.
At 6:45 AM, Christine, who is a Sgt. at Arms officer, is already at the gate along with other Student Affair Council (SAC) officers to help the school guard ensure that every student who comes in wears an ID. Her favorite subject is Economics because she learns how to deal with alternative choices on certain things.
She goes home by 5:00 P.M., takes a little rest, helps in the household chores like cleaning the house, washing dishes and cooking rice and does some school work and if she has still time before going to bed, she would grab her favorite book, usually Greek mythology, till she dozes off.
"I realize that I am fortunate to be a scholar. Many people would love to be where I am.
Everything is provided for me and all I need to do is to study and get good grades
especially now with the DLP which is easy to cope with because I'm used to self study."
shares Christine Diaz, who is in her final year in high school in SFAS already.
