College is probably one of the toughest things we have go through. The pressure of getting good grades while balancing family and social life can be really stressful. However, it seemed like Stephen Carl Quizon breezed through his college days and even managed to stay on top with an average grade of 1.193 at the University of the Philippines.
This Summa Cum Laude took up Speech Communication and Theatre Arts at the country’s most prestigious university. His graduation photo recently went viral and his life changed since then. “To be honest, since my sablay photo was uploaded, my phone would not stop vibrating. Notifications just keep on persisting,” he said.
His new found fame however will be useful once he sets out to fulfill his dream of becoming a television host. He added that he wants to join the ranks of Robi Domingo and Luis Manzano two of the country’s most famous celebrity hosts.
Stephen was part of the 2018 MYX VJ Search. He reached the competition’s finals round but sadly lost to Sam Alvero and Kay Reyes. Despite this setback however, won’t stop him from pursuing his dreams and passion.
“I am passionate on hosting and using my voice to speak on behalf of those who are silenced and continuously being silenced. I want to be next in line when it comes to hosting. Maybe, one day, I can be the next Luis Manzano and Robi Domingo of my generation,” he told PEP.
Stephen admitted that he initially wanted to become a surgeon. Due to unforeseen circumstances, he landed on the course which brought him back to his passion, literature and public speaking.
“I am more than happy and blessed to have entered Speech Communication. To become an Iskolar ng Bayan is the best choice I have done in my life,” he added.
