Of course, I’m so very thankful for the wonderful opportunity to be part of the CPU Golden Lions Badminton Team. I thank God for the talents that he has given me. CPU has taught me lessons that I can apply in my daily life as a sports enthusiast and an individual. I promise that I will do my best and continue to bring honor and uplift the Central Spirit.

Why did you choose CPU:
I chose CPU because it produces not only quality professionals, outstanding athletes but most of all, God-fearing students. In addition, CPU inspires their students to be independent and resilient that whatever struggles they have experienced in life, they can still stand firm because God is faithful. Lastly, in the future, whatever I’ve reached in life, I will never forget CPU for teaching me to be a productive person.
