Rock on! 


I’m PRIJ or Mary Prigilyn T. Aquino in real life, 19 years of age. I have a pure Filipino blood and values. I’m the eldest of the three gifted angels of my parents who are Bernardo Aquino, a Bicolano, and Priscilla Aquino, a Cebuana. I currently live in General Santos City, the Tuna Capital of the Philippines. I’m currently taking up my third year in college with a course of Bachelor of Secondary Education Major in Biology in Mindanao State University-General Santos City.

Yes! My course is all about teaching. I"m a Ma'am then.

How I love Bio so much. Hahah!

I’m a proud product of Pedro Acharon Sr. Central Elementary School, Notre Dame of Dadiangas University-IBED and General Santos City SPED Integrated School.

My motto in life is…(loading)…

“You are valued not for who you are,
not even for what you have,
but for what others have become because of you.”

Being valued by others doesn’t mean you have to be like them, you have to be materialistic or pretentious of being someone else’s character. It’s all about being accepted by others and all about your contributions on other lives that made them complete in some other ways.


I am Regel Ann Lontiong Dakingking, popularly known as “Babez” or “Rej”. I am here enjoying my life in this world for 19 years. I am a daughter of Mr. Felipe Dakingking and Mrs. LeilanieDakingking who are both teachers. I am the eldest daughter and having 2 brothers who are Mark Denver and Goldimerand 1 sister named Jezza. Rosas, Poblacion, Lake Sebu, South Cotabato is where our home located. I am now a third 3rd year student taking up Basic Secondary Education major in Biology (BSEd-Biology) at Mindanao State University –General Santos. I am currently staying at White House in Zone 1, Block 3 Fatima General Santos with a monthly bills since our home is very far from school.
What you will be in the future depends largely on how you make weakness your strength; distress, courage and failure a success. Opportunities will be knocking at your doorsteps once or twice and don’t let any of these pass your way without having a grip of it.
I am just a simple type of girl with simple outlook in life. I want to graduate with a real diploma. All in all I just want to have a happy life with less worry and can easily cope up and find solution to any problem that will come my way. Now, my course is in line with education and so with my future occupation a _teacher_. Learning still continues as I grow old and older finding answers to all the queries I have in my life. My quest for real life continues.

I am Jared June C. Casabuena 19 years of age and currently taking up BSed Biology. I was born at Sto. NiƱo South Cotabato on the 30th of June 1991. I have 3 siblings and I was first child of my parents. My mothers name is Ma. Erwin C. Casabuena and my fathers name is Sunny C. Casabuena. My mother was a teacher at Fatima National High School and my father was a Pastor. We are living in Purok 16 Blk. 1 Brgy. Fatima General Santos City. I love watching movies and animated cartoons and I love to sing sometimes, actually I am a member of Mindanao State University choral for almost 2 years. My past time are to paint natures and whatever I interested, sometimes I draw also anime character and sketch my crushes when I’m inspired. I love also to play basketball, volleyball, table tennis and badminton.
Actually I graduated from General Santos City High School and I enrolled in Special Program in the Arts, and my specialization is visual arts. In elementary I graduated from Fatima Central Elementary School. When I was in kinder I graduated from Tandag Pilot Elementary School in Surigao Del Sur. I strive in my academics and I am always in the honor rolls since kinder but when I’m in fourth year high school I fail to enter in the honor list.
Life is full of suffering, sadness, hatred and all of those things I successfully overcome. I started my studies at Mountain View Kinder School in Kinayao Bagumbayan Sultan Kudarat. After that we transfer to Surigao Del Sur were did I finish my Kinder School. I pursue my studies in elementary in Iloilo City from grade 1 to grade 3, and we transfer again here in Gensan. It is because to the work of my father, he is pioneering and planting churches in every place where the mission did they assigned us. Since I was in my younger age I already experience a lot in mingling with other people. We have to change and adopt our environment in order for us to survive. Travelling from one place to another gave me a lot of views in life. We must first observe their culture so that we could not do anything that may cause their anger. Studying the behavior and attitudes of people was my hobby since then. I always observe them and try to evaluate what kind of people they are so that I could not render anything that may offend them. I actually learn to do it since we started to move into places. Different places have their different cultures, belief and traditions that are what I’ve learn and mingling with different people gave me a wider acceptance of the differences of every person. This affects my views in life. 

I am Monique Jade D. Salisipan, a 19 year old third year Bachelor of secondary Education major in Biology female student. I am a daughter of Mr. Osman S. Salisipan and Mrs. Wilsie D. Salisipan. I am the only daughter of my parents. I am living at Pangyan, Glan, Sarangani Province. I am currently studying at Mindanao state University-Fatima, General Santos City. I like to eat French fries and spaghetti. My favorite colors are pink, black and white. I love Harry potter, Vampire diaries and Twilight series. I like Taylor Swift and Britney Spears as a singers and Nina Dobrev as an actress. For local artists, I like sarah Geronimo as a singer and Angel Locsin as an actress. 
I am interested to explore and learn more about technologies because I do believe that someday we will be dependent enough to technologies whether we like it or not. This knowledge that I have right now will be very useful someday if I will be a teacher already wherein I must impart knowledge to them. This knowledge is very important for them to have wider scope of awareness around them, to the surrounding that they are living. So I think EdTech is a must-enrolled subject for future teachers because this will help them a lot so that they will become and effective and well prepared facilitators.
