With Mrs. Asuncion R. Paler guiding me, I was off to the right track. It was at SJC that I
experienced bullying at my nursery years. I honestly wanted to fight my classmates
because they would plunge my face at the school sink. It was then that I promised that I

experienced everything during my elementary and High School days. I had highs and lows
but thankfully God got me through.
