T.I.P. alumnus is one of TOSP-NCR finalists

Jay-bee R. Landayan, BS Accountancy alumnus of the Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) Manila, was recently named as one of twenty (20) Regional Finalists from the National Capital Region (NCR) in the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP). The awarding ceremony was held on July 24, 2017 at the Asian Institute of Management.

Landayan, Batch 2017 graduate, was an active student leader and honor student of T.I.P. Manila. While in school, Landayan always displayed a strong desire to serve others, especially his fellow students. He was an officer of various T.I.P. Manila student organizations including the Society of Scholars, Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants, and League of Recognized Student Organizations. In 2015, he represented T.I.P. as one of the official delegates of the Ayala Young Leaders Congress. A Dr. Teresita U. Quirino (DTUQ) scholar, Landayan also proved to be very dedicated to his studies. Hurdling the challenges of studying Accountancy, he managed to finish as one of the top students of his class, graduating Cum Laude.

Landayan wishes to inspire the youth to use their talents and skills in service of others. “I make sure to turn life’s negativities into sources of motivation to succeed or at least touch other people’s lives. Through serving, I find fulfillment despite my shortcomings,” he said.

Awarded as one of the TOSP-NCR finalists, Landayan continues to rally young Filipinos like him to serve and help educate others through participating in outreach projects or advocacies, such as the #HugotorialProject and #HandogLibroProject.

Established in 1961, the TOSP seeks young role models from around the country who personify academic excellence, exemplary leadership, and a deep sense of social responsibility, all anchored on good moral values. The awards program aims to establish role models that will inspire the Filipino youth to bring about total human development in the nation, promote the common good, and develop and share their talents, skills, and values towards nation-building, learning, leading and serving.
