However, Inocencio learned quickly how significant her course was: “Agriculture and Agribusiness is far more beyond the misconception of being a poor man’s career. This country needs more professionals that will utilize our resources to feed the ever-growing population.”

“I want to make more millennials be engaged in agriculture,” she said. “I want to pull them into knowing that playing a role in the economy would need them to be involved in agriculture.”

The University of the Philippines was founded on June 18, 1908 through Act No. 1870 of the Philippine Assembly. The UP was the result of the Secretary of Public Instruction, W. Morgan Schuster’s recommendation to the Philippine Commission, the upper house of the Philippine Assembly. Act 1870 authorized the Governor General to establish the University of the Philippines in the “city of Manila, or at any point he may deem most convenient.” The UP was to give “advanced instruction in literature, philosophy, the sciences and arts, and to give professional and technical training” to every qualified student regardless of “age, sex, nationality, religious belief and political affiliation.”

A crowd of developers and engineers with laptops packed the small white room at the iAcademy in Makati City for the day’s workshop on data analysis and machine learning. The diverse audience contrasted with the fact that the event’s technical facilitators were all female. Casually dressed and with years of training behind them, the team featured UP molecular biologist Iris Diana Uy, who led participants last February through the meticulous process of slicing and merging arrays of data.

Abigail Romero felt a light pop in her head, and that led to a different direction in her career. As a Food Technology graduate of UP Los Baños, the cruise line’s crewing agency offered her a chef secretary position, and that is where it all begun. In 2006 she left her company and joined a ship, her hopes high but with trepidation in her heart.

It was a strange job for a woman, so why did she take it? “Applying for the ship is indeed interesting with very few women trying it out. During our Solas [Safety of Life at Sea] training, the ship required training certificate [now called BT or Basic Training] for female applicants. They have to prove that they can take on the training alongside male trainees,” she narrated.

When the end of school term approaches, most young adults choose to focus on the final requirements at hand and in between, readying themselves for the much-awaited and long-deserved break.

That wasn’t the case for 3 students from the University of the Philippines Diliman, who joined – and won – the Philippine leg of L’Oreal’s Brandstorm, a contest where college students are made to come up with new concepts and products for the cosmetics giant.

Coleen Chua, Caitlin Yu, and Clarice Tee or C^3, bagged the top prize and were flown to Paris, where they competed against other teams from all over the world.
