Denser Gabe Dongla Sadlay is the only cadet graduating from an unknown place called Labbay in Sabangan, Mountain Province, among the 224 remarkable cadets of the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy (PMMA) "MASAKBAYAN" class of 2020, which will hold graduation rites on June 12, 2020.

Denser Gabe D. Sadlay completed his secondary education from Pingad National High School in his hometown in 2013. He also enrolled in Mechanical Engineering at the Saint Louis University in Baguio City before joining the highly-acclaimed PMMA.
