T.I.P. QC engineering students, top delegates in 12th Aboitiz student summit

Pauline Nicole Bernadette Luna (5th Year, Electrical Engineering) and Jan Justine Razon (5th Year, Computer Engineering) of the Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) Quezon City, after going through a rigorous selection process, were recently identified as two of the Top 90 delegates in the upcoming 12th Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit (AFLBS). The said summit will be held on November 9-11, 2017 in Cebu City.

An active student leader, Luna is currently the president of the T.I.P. Inhinyera Club, where she started as Vice President in 2015. Her good academic standing also made her a grantee of the 2016 Aboitiz College Scholarship Program (ACSP). Aside from juggling her extracurricular activities and her studies, Luna ensures that she also shares her time in helping fellow students as a student tutor of the T.I.P. Math and Physics Department and as a peer adviser of the Guild of Advisers Bringing Adjuration to the Youth (GABAY).

When asked why she decided to join the AFLBS, Luna explained her desire to go on an adventure. “As a student leader, I think it is important for me to explore new things, to be able to think out of the box and out of my comfort zone,” she said. “Seeing how much the AFLBS alumni of T.I.P. have grown after being part of the summit, I was truly inspired,” she added.

Joining Luna is “Jaja” Razon. Razon, a well-trusted student leader, has always been voted as president of different organizations since 2014. He was president of the Humanities and Social Sciences Society (2014), CpE Department Student Council (2015), and the Supreme Student Council (2016). According to him, he decided to join the summit as he was inspired by his upperclassmen in the student council who were also AFLBS delegates in 2016.

“I hope for it to be fun together with Jaja and the rest of the student delegates from other schools. This will be a great opportunity to get to know each other better and also more time for us to learn about Aboitiz and meet the people behind the company,” said Luna. The two T.I.P.ians are set to fly to Cebu this coming November and look forward to the experiences that await them. “I am looking forward to work and collaborate with student leaders around the Philippines and be guided by the leaders of Aboitiz. This summit will not only help us network, but will surely help us grow as individuals with the drive to make the community better,” concluded Razon.
