Last November 8, 2019, Thomasian Angelicans were given another opportunity to participate in the second out of five series of Digital 360 “Finding Your Passion” held at the St. Albert Auditorium and Blessed Jordan Building. There were two parts in this series. It included a seminar in the morning and a workshop in the afternoon wherein learners from YS 7 to the College levels attended. Both sessions were hosted by the organizers from the UST Angelicum Student Leaders.
The learners had the privilege to hear the thoughts and ideas of three inspiring speakers, namely Ms. Samantha Sanchez, Public Affairs and Strategic Communications Manager of the Philippine Business Unit of the Coca-Cola Company; Dr. Gia Sison, the host of G Talks, co-founder of #HealthxPH, and PH leader of the Livestrong Foundation; Mr. Jeff Vadillio, Vice President of the Cornerstone Entertainment Inc. Intermission numbers were given by the UST Angelicum Dance Troupe and Chorale.
In addition, a financial literacy activity through board games was conducted by representatives from the PRAXIS Company by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.
The audience enjoyed the series’ discussions and workshops. The participants also gained more knowledge and confidence in finding their passion in life. The learners can expect to learn more and enjoy in the next parts of the Digital 360 Series.
