"It was really nice to see the girls and meet them. They seem to be well behaved, respectful, and studious. I hope I can get to know more about them; their interests, their dreams, their challenges. I can feel that they have a lot of potential and I would really like to inspire them to dream big and study hard to achieve bigger things in life." by Kristine Labayen Reyes
