What’s your advice for current students who want to become a Husky 100?

The Husky 100 is not just about getting good grades or having a long list of accomplishments. This program is about recognizing passionate individuals who want to use their UW experience to create a better world for their peers and for future generations. Don’t just list facts about yourself. Tell your story!

What goals are you working towards?

I am continuing to pursue a career in broadcast journalism. This quarter, I interned at KING 5. I will spend next quarter living in Olympia as a TVW intern during Washington’s legislative session. I hope to work for a video news organization after graduating from the UW.

What does the Husky 100 award mean to you and your closest supporters?

The Husky 100 award not only recognized my work ethic, but also the support and sacrifices of family members, mentors and friends who have helped me along the way. My parents moved to the U.S. from the Philippines in hopes of giving our family more opportunities. In a way, receiving this award confirmed that their hard work paid off.
