Meet our Student Ambassadors

4th year, Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management
Throughout my journey with COMEX, I met different student leaders with different personalities and advocacies. Some joined because it is required, others volunteered with a heart. But regardless of your agenda, thank you for serving. Big help or small help, still, it is help.
To all the students out there, always remember that your efforts will pay off. Keep on serving!

Francheska Symone Roze Dizon

3rd year Bachelor of Science in Nursing
Volunteerism is one for the books as it is one of the most selfless acts that we can engage in. It is like a ray of sunshine, influencing thousands of people it reaches and putting a smile on the faces of those who touch it. Volunteerism strengthens, motivates, and uplifts. It strengthens the bonds of the people who engage in it, motivates those who are within reach of it, and uplifts those who receive it. And because of that, volunteerism is a demand that will forever be of need to the community. What are you waiting for? Let’s start to change the world step-by-step and enjoy the effects of it together!
