I want to be someone who gives hope to students, youths, and all persons who are denied their rights. Since my five years in the university, my colleagues and I have awakened the spirit of activism and positive change in fellow students and have instilled in them the virtue of standing for what is just and truth. We have initiated a nationwide campus outlet where we are grooming newly admitted university students in becoming responsible citizens of their various community.
