The Top 3 cadet from the Philippine National Police Academy, hails from Malubibit Norte, Flora, Apayao.

P/CDT Guzman is the second child among the six children of Mr. Joel T. De Guzman, a retired soldier from the Philippine Army, and Mrs. Mercy D. De Guzman, a humble housewife, growing up on a farm. He already experienced hardships and the true meaning of hard work to earn and obtain food for their table.

He finished his primary education at Malubibit Elementary School as a valedictorian and his secondary education at Flora National High School. He took up the course of Bachelor of Science in Criminology at Cagayan State University - Sanchez Mira Campus.

During his childhood days, he dreamt of following his father's footsteps as a soldier of the nation. By some twist of fate, he took the Philippine National Police Academy Cadet Admission test and was successfully admitted to being part of PNPA Hinirang Class of 2021.

For the next 4 years, his life inside the Academy was full of struggles, pressures, and obstacles that he faced during his cadetship days. Despite daunting challenges, he successfully overcame all obstacles through sheer courage, perseverance, and determination.

Amidst all problems that he went through, he still managed to graduate from this prestigious institution and be conferred with the Top 3 award of his class.

His journey is indeed a difficult one. Having the determination to succeed, he went on and faced difficult odds for he believed that nothing is impossible as long as you will always continue to push forward for your goal without hesitation.

He always put his heart into everything he does. No matter how hard it takes, no matter what the odds are, he will always work hard in order to make his dream become a reality.

"Do not just dream for it, Do the best for it."
