Had I insisted on this as my limitation, I probably would have pulled back early on and still not know what I can be capable of doing as a willing partner for development. I knew I had a lot of stories to share. Hence, I decided to dive into my own obliviousness and braved a program I had no solid background in. Out of the many reasons I had for applying in this program, three motivations stood out: Two months later, we were in Australia.
I cried buckets at the airport. I panicked for a second, how could I possibly pull this off? I was frustrated with the incessant power interruptions in my city accompanied by lack of water supply. I was welcomed with eight days of black out. We made a snowman, it was nothing like Olaf.
To my batch mates, my friends, my family, thank you so much for everything.

There were heaps of fun involved and since we only had a year to spend there, we made sure every second counted.
Vidal, Manuel graduation speech DLSU Manila – video dailymotion
I needed to think outside the box and this program gave me the environment to do just that. We visited and took tons of selfies in the breathtaking beaches of Australia, the stunning mountains, spectacular views, listened about their history, reveled in their beautiful arts and memorial museums, picnicked and jogged in their picturesque parks and botanical gardens, marveled at the bluest of skies, made friends with the warm outgoing Aussies and relished the multi-cultural ambiance that it offered.
Some practically wrote the book on Organizational Behaviour, others know Training and Development like the back of their hands, while the rest are seasoned HR practitioners and consultants. We let it go. I have been blessed to be in the midst of such incredible group of leaders and critical thinkers. I cried some more when I arrived home with a candle-lit dinner waiting for me. The cold never bothered us anyway.
Sam Razon Dlsu Graduation Speech On Falling In Love
Hence, I decided to dive into my own obliviousness and braved a program I had no solid background in. So I took a dleu back and walked down memory lane. Heartbroken because we had too many talents in my community who could be making massive waves and remarkable contributions to our country but they were stuck in thankless jobs, watching days pass them by.
When I left Australia, it shattered my heart into pieces.
I panicked for a second, how could I possibly pull this off? Then I remembered our training at the Uni: Our hands were frozen beneath our gloves but we let our happiness rage on.
This is our much-deserved reward and today, we celebrate it.
I just need to keep going. The first time I experienced fresh snow fall was in Hobart, Tasmania.
DLSU-UoN Graduation Speech – by Lady Hanifah Mindalano
It was impressive how all these were provided to us by the program. My lack of knowledge in HRM was not going to be an excuse to exempt myself from becoming a part of the solution.
We finally made it! I wanted to spur change in our organization but I did not have the technical know-how, much less the exposure to bring it into being. We made a snowman, it speedh nothing like Olaf. From my Australia Awards journey, I learned that I needed to experience those frustrations to kick me out of my comfort zone and actually think about what I could do to remedy the situation.
I had to travel two to three hours to Iligan or Cagayan de Oro just to send an email with attachment or upload documents for my application. I am extremely honoured to be speaking in front of you in this very important occasion. I had to climb on top of our roof to get signal and connect with friends both overseas and in the Philippines. While to many graduates, this culminates a chapter of their lives, to our batch, this is a continuation of what we have begun from DLSU to UON, Australia. Fast forward, I applied for the scholarship, interviewed, speec in, Alhamulillah thank God.
Derrick Yu; administrators, university fellows, faculty and graduates, friends and family, good afternoon.
