"Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great."

I came from a simple family from the mountainous province of Kalinga. The province known by most people as Head Hunters. Wherever I go, there are always people who would say "Ah taga-Kalinga ka pala, mga Head Hunters." However, this notion didn't stop me in achieving my goals and to aim tall and high just like those tall mountains of Kalinga.

I finished my BS Accountancy at the University of the Cordilleras in May 2013 and passed the Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination in October of the same year. I practiced my profession at a private institution as an external auditor for almost 5 years. As I stayed longer in that institution I realized that I wanted to do more and do things that matters most specially for our country. I believed that I would be able to achieve that goal and satisfaction if I join the law enforcement. With that goal in mind I decided to apply at the most elite unit of the PNP, the Special Action Force. After 5 months of waiting and endured application, I was one of the 379 SAF recruits attrition quota 1st cycle 2020 who took oath on February 28, 2020.

I admit that at first it wasn't easy for me as I wasn't used to the regimented way of life and the level of discipline expected from a man in uniform is far greater than that of the civilian's. There were also times when I thought of quitting, but then I thought of my goals and the people who are continuously supporting and motivating me, then I pick-up myself again and continue to go on.

As the days go by, training didn't become easier, but it wasn't also difficult. If you only learn to follow, you would survive the training and you wouldn't mind the days that tomorrow is your graduation day. Just like our Officer-in-charge RTC 3 PLTCOL MARLON VENTURA RUFO, " Wala tayong gagawing kakaiba, sumunod lang ng sumunod."

To my family, Ma, Pa, Ate, Kuya, thank you for continuously supporting me, you have been my inspiration. Even though you are not present in my graduation day, I know that you are very proud of me.

To RTC 3 training staff led by our Officer-in-charge RTC 3 PLTCOL MARLON VENTURA RUFO, thank you for molding us to become better and disciplined policeman and for all the knowledge and guidance you have given to us. All of the memories of our training are carved in our hearts and will surely treasure forever.

To my fellow Top 3, I am exceptionally proud of us, as we are part of the PNP unit who are mostly dominated by men, but clearly we have proven once again that even though we are women, we can also excel and more.

To my classmate, thank you, as we have trained together, cried together, laughed together, pushed the ground together, and rolled like a barrel together, I hope that the discipline, teamwork and camaraderie we have built during our 6 months training would always be with us.

To our classmate, late PAT Callanao, to you we offer our success in this Graduation Day; wherever you are now, rest assured that your sacrifice will never be forgotten. You will always be a part of our class "MAG-ALAB". You will always be remembered.

To our Almighty Father, thank you for giving us the strength and courage to face all the challenges of our training. Success is not final; failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts.

Class MAG-ALAB let us keep the fire going. May the Force be with us always. Ahoowa....
