In 2017, Eda Glis Buansi Marapao, now a Navy Ensign, became the first female cadet from Benguet to emerge as topnotcher among graduates in the Philippine Military Academy when she ranked number three in her class.

She is also the youngest member of PMA Class 2017 at 21 years old that time.

Three years later, her younger sister, First Class Cadet Glyn Elinor Buansi Marapao, 21 years old, ranked number 8 among the 258-strong members of PMA Class 2019. She will join the Philippine Navy as a proud female Marine officer.

The Marapao family hails from Lengaoan, Buguias, Benguet. Their father is a retired military sergeant.
