Dear Clarion, Very commendable po ang issue na inilalabas ninyo every week. Kaya lang po bakit parang tinitipid ninyo at lagging sa bond paper lang nakaprint and newspaper?

ble”, this was proven by Millecent Pangilinan AB Political Science as she brought home the beacon in Impromptu Speech during MSC Olympics. August 19, 2013 as part of the Nexus team. Armored with conversant ideas regarding the current news and events, Pangilinan prepared in the mentioned competition. She drew “Sangguniang Kabataan: A School of Corruption”. She expressed her erudite ideas about the topic and kindly put an emphasis to “Ang Kabataan ay Pag-Asa Ng
Bayan, Reporma sa Edad Ang Kailangan”. Pangilinan said, “There were butterflies in my stomach when I set foot in front. I was embarrassed seeing my opponents wearing formal attire attire because I am only wearing my Department t-shirt and I thought I will be disqualified. Thanks to ABSO and ARTSSO for providing my attire in few minutes at all cost” she added Just trust yourself, pray to God and have faith in Him, you’ll bag the title you’re aiming for despite of being like little David alone competing multi Giant Goliaths.
