I am already a 16-
year old girl.Turning
17 this April 8,2021.
I was born in EPDH or
My beloved parents
are Luzviminda Aquijo
and Rudy C. Aquijo JR.
I also have two
siblings and they are
Rich Lance and
We are 5 in the family and we are
happy and contented in what we have
I went to one of the most
prestigious schools in our
place and that’s none other
than Tayug Foubdational
There,I’ve met a lot of
teachers who shapen my
abilities and taught me a
lot of lessons that I could
apply in my life.One of my
teachers is Sir Marck
I had a lot of classmates
and I’ve met a lot friends
who made my highshcool
life vibrant and awesome.
I also joined different clubs
,and one of it is the SSG. I
enjoyed all those events that
I experienced in my school.
It’s been 4 yeas since I went
to TFCA. I’ve already
graduated in my junior
years and as of now, I am a
grade 11 student who took
the STEM strand.
In my elem days, I am always the top 1 in our class. I’ve been
getting good grades and achieved a lot of awards.As I went
to TFCA, I carried that pride within me.Here are just some of
my achievements as an active and responsible student.
I’ve been into a lot of contests and
sometimes, I lose. Sometimes, I win. I’ve
already collected a lot of medals and
certificates and until now, I’m trying my
best to be on top. I’ve always wanted to
return back all the sacrifices my parents
made and to make them proud of me.
My personality has changed after I encountered a lot
of problems and issues which shapen me for who I am
now.Back then, I was a happy-go-lucky- girl who
always make friends with anyone.I was talkative and
never gets shy to whoever I talk with.I am what you call
the extrovert person.
But as of now, I am just an introvert girl who wants to
stay all night in our house and just do my routines like
what I always do. I never go outside and interact with
everyone else.I don’t even care anymore if I have or
don’t have friends. As long as my family is with me,
nothing else matters anymore.
Well, just like everyone else, I have a lot
of likes. Particularly,some hobbies.
I have always like to draw. When I’m not busy
and wants to have a quality time with myself, I
always spend my time drawing a lot things.Here
are just some of my artworks.
I like reading books.
Because I am super
addicted to it, I have a lot
of books in my bookshelf.
I like cooking
since I am
have the time, I
I always like
is none other
And lastly, I always like to go on a
roadtrip. It makes me calm and relax
and I tend to forget my problems.
If I have my likes, I also have my
Yes, I never liked
Hawaiian pizza. Even if it
looks tasty, I don’t want
pizza mixed with
Even if I like to eat, I
don’t like to eat raisins. I
dislike it. I don’t eat food
mixed with raisins
Unlike other girls, I dislike wearing
clothes like this. I’m not into type of
outfits. I am more on wearing tshirts
I dislike color pink. It’s not
appealing in my eyes. I am more
into black, red, or blue.
In my 16 years of living here on Earth, ofcourse I
have already encountered a lot of problems.
When I was in my junior high, I was always a
negative thinker. And even if I have a lot of friends
and my loved ones were with me, I always wanted
to disappear or die. But happy to say, I overcame
it and now, I am one of those positive persons
you could ever talk with. I’ve seen myself growing
into a more matured person. My mindset and
everything about me had change.But in a very
good way ofcourse.But as of now, I am sad since I
lost one of the most important persons in my life.
My granpa died this November. It was one of the
most heartbreaking days for me,and for my
family,but I hope he’s in a happier place now and
he can’t feel those pains anymore.I know he will
always be at our side.
Back then, I don’t really like to be a doctor someday.I find engineering or accountant suitable for me. But my dreams
has changed when we were placed in a pandemic. I adored all of our frontliners and was amazed by their dedication to
save our country,our world, and all mankinds on Earth. And then this feeling came out. I told to myself, I want to be a
doctor. I want to be like them.I want to bring good things to others. I desire to help people in need. I want to save
someone. And so, I chose the STEM strand. I am currently doing my best in school in order for me to be successful
someday and help the underprivileged sectors.I want to see myself, that 10 years from now,I am wearing a white coat
with a smile.I am now a doctor. MY existence finally saves lives.
“You only live once, so enjoy the moment.”
And so, to finish this, I just want to share this
very realization I gained, especially when we
were quarantined. You see, we only live once,
so we better enjoy the moment that we are
experiencing.. It’s scary to think that in just one
snapped, a lot of things could’ve
happened.Without us knowing about it.And so,
we better cherish every single minute that
passes by. Talk to your loved-ones, have a
great time with them, and enjoy all those
priceless moments you are having. There’s a
saying that time is gold. And it really is. The
moment we waste it, we can never turn back
the time again. All that is left are regrets. We
don’t want that to happen,right? And so start
right after reading this.Live,love,laugh. ENJOY
THE MOMENT. I am certain that you will be in
a happier place.
