FEDELENE Joy Cawagas, 21, of Janiuay, Iloilo, is one proud product of the University of San Agustin after landing on 10th place in the August 2017 Medical Technology Licensure Examination.
Since she was in pre-school, Fedelene had been an active learner and excelled academically. Though she encountered problems, her being religious and jolly helped her overcome difficulties.
Criticism and doubt tested her faith in herself but due to the support of her family and friends, she became driven and inspired in life.
She took up Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science as she planned to proceed to Medicine. Her experience as an intern at Western Visayas Medical Center heightened her enthusiasm to be a doctor.
As of now, she enjoys her youthful life as she thinks about her future plans – whether to immediately proceed in her studies or to apply for employment in the meantime.
Cawagas believes that in order for one to achieve in life, one has to “work with passion and purpose so that no matter how hard your dreams are, no matter what obstacles you may face, your passionate heart and strong will could help you attain your goals.”
