Sometime in January this year, I received an invitation to speak at the University of Perpetual Help by Bianca Saldua. We became friends during the last NCAA basketball season while she was working as a courtside reporter for the Altas and while I was covering the league basketball tournament for Business Mirror.
She sat in my Intro to Journ class in Ateneo and soon after that she invited me for a seminar in her school. And accepting it was a good decision because I thought that meeting people and making new friends is always a great and rewarding experience. Definitely a highlight for the month of February (it was on the 23rd and I was the first speaker).
My talk centered on new media and how to take advantage of it for one's career. I juxtaposed it with personal experiences while offering tips on how to approach the work (which is equal parts fun).
