Why did you choose to study in Ateneo?
I chose to study in Ateneo because I really like my course, Management Engineering. Also, I was being asked by the Ateneo Women’s Volleyball Team to join them under a full scholarship, so it was a good opportunity for me to be able to continue playing the sport that I love.

Why did you choose your course?
I chose my course because they say that Management Engineering is the course to take if you want to go into the corporate world. Math is also one of my favorite subjects so I got interested in the program. Aside from these, I wanted to challenge myself by taking up one of the hardest courses in Ateneo.
