Been so long, eh? 😀
And since I’m running out of ideas on what to post on my blog…
I decided to share to you my speech when I was a third year student.
Well, it’s not a really a speech like what Valedictorians and Salutatorians do.. ^^
Here it is…

Good afternoon everyone – to our principal, Mrs. Erlinda Manzanero; our asst. principal Ms. Corazon Ercia, teachers, school mates and friends. It is a great honor to speak in front of you today, this very important day that crowns the glory of rewards for a school year’s efforts, challenges and duties as students in our beloved school , SPIST.
Being tasked to give tips and advice on how to become an honor student was somehow not easy. Why? It made me review and analyze what did I do or what do I have to become on top of my class. That sure was difficult, because I felt that the past events spontaneously happened, just mixed it with hard work, some sleepless nights doing projects and feasibility study, really tough hours during COCC trainings,
But above those hardships, put an always ready smile for everybody, enjoy each moment and pray for the best.
So from there, I can give you six tips which can be helpful to you, not only in your studies but also in your everyday life.
First, love your work.
Do it not for the rewards to be reaped afterwards, but because you want to give the best you can and present your output chin up and head up, proudly saying, “This is my work! I did this!”
Second, Always prepare for whatever task you have to accomplish.
Get busy and get yourself ready. Throw away self-doubt because when you believe you can, you really can achieve it. Don’t be afraid to accept tasks because if you prepare for it, you can do it.
It was found by researchers that blind people has higher IQ than deaf people. Why? Because blind people are blessed to be able to hear important details and information through listening, hence they learn more. God gave us two ears and one mouth to use in that proportion. Talk less, listen more.
Fourth, Take action.
Do not be afraid to stumble or make mistakes. Learn what you can and move on. Create the circumstance you want, do not be a passive on-looker. At the end of your days, you will be judged by your gallop, not by your stumble.
Fifth, Show respect,
not only for the elderly, not only for our teachers and administrators, but also for our classmates and friends as well. Always honor your parents. For inevitably, whether we like it or not, we will become parents and elderly in the future.
Last but not the least, always pray and thank our Creator.
Everything we have and we are today came from our Lord. And we should always do things that honor Him.
My dear fellow students, I believe that intelligence is just secondary, because our attitude and values counts more. Be a good student, be a good daughter or son, the best that you can be.
Make good choices, then the best consequences will follow.
Good day to all of you and thank you for listening…
