I was Part of the Story

July 2, 2017

Last Friday, I was privileged to be invited by Giselle Montero of DLS-CSB SDEAS to  “Be Part of the Story” – a night celebrating De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s partnership and of culture-building as they aimed to collaborate and expand their story with the invitees. The event started at 6:00 and supposed to have ended at 9:00 PM on June 30, 2017 at the Axon in Green Sun, Chino Roces Avenue Extension, Makati City. . But many came in late because of the traffic caused by the heavy rain downpour.

As such members of the Silent Steps performed without their lead choreographer Myra Medrana. They reached the venue right after the performance. I could not recognize anyone from the group I have always worked with because most of the members are new students of SDEAS. I got to meet several people from different disciplines and companies; also met old acquaintances, even a classmate in the Filipino Sign Language class 10 years ago. I got to be introduced and had a good chat with Film Director Mark Meilly about El Presidente. He teaches at CSB I was told.

De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde envisions building a just and humane society by fostering the spirit of inclusion and innovation. The College’s strategic direction is to initiate and sustain value-laden connections and partnerships with organizations that share in the advocacy of finding innovative and inclusive solutions to societal concerns and issues. They also acknowledge their role in society to address sustainable developmental goals through inclusive strategies, provision of experiential learning, interdisciplinary collaboration, cross-sector partnerships, and the creation of social impact that can be scaled for greater reach.

The special event hopes to continue to seize the opportunities and embrace the challenges of transforming our society into a better and more responsive community of change agents.
