Ateneo isn't just an institution. It gave me the best 12 years of my life. It taught me how to be the best version of myself, it taught me how to love unconditionally and be a man and woman for others. All I am today is because of my parents and Ateneo…Ateneo taught me to give more and be compassionate to see all people as equals. Ateneo, will always be home. No school I went to today can compare to the joy, love and care Ateneo gave me. I will forever stand with the blue & white. Gracias, Ateneo! <3
