What makes a person “ideal”?

“Nobody is perfect and whatever we do we cannot attain perfection. But striving for excellence, always striving… keeping good relationship with people, and honoring God in everything we do makes a person not perfect, but pretty much Ideal. And an Ideal person, is what a true Thomasian is.”

How do you practice faith as a Thomasian?

“Faith can never be expressed or practiced by words alone. It can only be seen in our actions and in our beliefs. Life, more often than not, throws troubles and problems in our way and by trusting in God and believing that His plan for us is always good can we practice faith. True faith is not trusting ourselves or our capabilities but trusting in God who makes all things a new. I practice faith by simply always trusting God in everything that comes my way. I trust that His plans for me are the best. Often times He asks us to let go of things that are not part of His plans for us and that is where my faith is tested. In letting go and letting God have I fully expressed my faith as a Thomasian.”

How can you promote peace in your community?

“There are two ways to promote peace: either by being a peacemaker, or a peacekeeper. A peacekeeper is a person who sees the good in things and makes it his responsibility to make sure that “good” is well preserved. A peacemaker, on the other hand, is a person who’ll do anything and everything just to attain the peace he wants. Among the two I strive to be a peacekeeper by holding on to the values that has been instilled in me, by saying no to compromising things, and by being an example to those of my age, older, and younger.”

Why should the Thomasian community vote for you?

“ I am a person with high belief and I believe that this pageant should not be and should never be a popularity contest. I joined the pageant not to get praises from people or to be known by others but I joined because I want to take responsibility in my university. I want to share to people that it is possible no say no to compromise and that it is all worth it to always strive for excellence and to passionately follow God in everything we do. That it is not lame to be different. I want to be heard, not to be noticed. I want to be involved in keeping what is good and saying no to what is not right. If the Thomasian community agrees with my beliefs and are willing to stand up for these beliefs then win or lose I can be assured that my joining was not in vain.”

What makes a person “ideal”?

“Being an Ideal Thomasian Personality doesn’t only mean being someone who holds such a prestigious the title but it is being someone who is given the responsibility to be a role model to others. It is someone who lives up to his own ideals and principles through concrete actions in his own sphere of influence.”

How do you practice faith as a Thomasian?

“I can practice faith as a Thomasian by first and foremost living up to the 3 C’s of the University : Compassion, Competence and Commitment. It is through these 3 I can undertake a step by step process to promote the virtues instilled in me by the school. It is because hope comes with faith, I can strive to be better not only for myself but for others without second thoughts. Faith is the drive that fuels my passion to be of service to others.”

How can you promote peace in your community?

“Peace can be made present in all 3 environments. Whether it be in the home, in school or in the community, it can be reiterated by starting with making an advocacy of promoting transparency and communication. I believe that through communication, misunderstandings will be decreased and feelings of consideration will be nurtured. Relationships are built on trust and when established, peace comes after.”

“Someone ideal displays altruism- a life of self-service and sacrifice. More importantly, an ideal individual is not after his/her own glory but is after continuing the legacy of God. We are called to be the salt and light of the earth not for our own sake but for the benefit of others. This means that through our lifestyle, we not only bring out the best in ourselves but we also positively influence and bring out the best in others.”
