When asked to comment about her winning the MOSS award, Robantes said, “Being the most outstanding senior student doesn’t mean that you stand above all the other senior students because, in the context of multiple intelligences, we excel in our own ways. But it means that amid pressures
crises, difficulties of student life, a most outstanding student outstands them all. To those who want to be the MOSS of their batch, start preparing now and live daily in excellence and according to God’s will. Grab the opportunities to develop yourself and maintain balance in all aspects of life. ‘Read your Bible and pray every day and you’ll grow, glow, and go’ according to Dr. Garilva. Lastly, it’s never a competition with others but with self.” --by Mary Joy Edralin
