Scholar of the Week: Jonathan

Jonathan Baduria

Birthday: March 15, 1994
High school: Balara High School
Level: 2nd year
Ecosoc guardian: Angeli Juani

Behind Jonathan’s glasses is a mind that constantly quests for knowledge. As such, it’s only fitting that he is interested in astronomy; in particular, he hopes to be able to someday discover planets. In the meantime however, he enjoys regular activities that kids his age enjoy, such as basketball. He is a fan of Parokya ni Edgar and the Underworld film series.

A scholar since last year, he hopes to attend the University of Asia and the Pacific because it is, according to him, the “pinakamagandang school.”


Scholar of the Week: Seann

Sean Chester Vicente

Quiet and jolly, this sophomore likes to read science books. He has been an Ecosoc scholar since last year. He says he’s not yet sure what he wants to be when he grows up, but we’re all sure he will go on to reach great heights.

We wish Seann the best of luck in his endeavors. Stay happy Seann!
