WYA Asia Pacific Director Speaks at UNITE 2014


WYA Asia Pacific Director Lord Pomperada delivered a speech at UNITE 2014, a closing celebration of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde’s silver anniversary and a welcoming party for freshmen students. The celebration gathered over four thousand students, faculty and alumni at the World Trade Center Manila on June 6. Lord, a Consular and Diplomatic Affairs alumnus of the College of Saint Benilde, shared his humble beginnings as a student in college and how the knowledge and skills that he gained in college have contributed to his success.

“You don’t learn everything inside the classroom. I encourage the freshmen to go beyond their limits and learn something new by joining student organizations or participating in different activities inside and outside of school. This will help you become the person who you want to be in the future. Always do ordinary things extraordinarily well,” Lord advised.

Various performers also entertained the students, faculty, and alumni during the program. Some of the performers included Original Pinoy Music singers Nyoy Volante and Bamboo.  The evening reflected the vibrant life of the school and the sustained relationships between students, faculty, and alumni. WYA Asia Pacific Director Lord Pomperada was honored at the invitation to speak at this event.
