“I’m not gonna lie. I entered UP with a very specific ambition in mind – to graduate summa cum laude,” this proud 21-year-old from Cebu City said. And indeed, he now graduates with the top Latin honors. Although it was “a hell-bent journey,” he nevertheless succeeded with the help of his family, friends, former teachers, and “the college professors who gave me my fair share of UP education.”

Beyond his scholastic accomplishments, Ariel said “I am very much a painfully average and uninteresting person.”
