President to young ‘diplomats’: Make friends

by Daryl Zamora, CCO on February 15, 2012 - 12:03 pm

Diplomatic work that is based on genuine friendship.

That is how UA&P President Jose Maria Mariano described the work of the newly created Junior Networkers Society (JNS) in a recent lunch get-together (‘JAM Session’) with the group.

A brainchild of the President, the JNS is composed of 16 scholars from different year levels. Members are tasked to showcase the vision-mission and identity of the University to potential and current collaborators, including members of the diplomatic corps, business executives, and government officials. The JNS also aims to develop its members’ skills in public and international relations.

In the forum, Dr. Mariano said the JNS can win friendship through calidad humana, a way of being that expresses human elegance and character.

Dr. Mariano added that the work of the JNS is a component of the University’s internationalization efforts. It is also a way of preparing students for the international job market.

The pioneering JNS members are Carl Francis C. Moog, Hannah Cielo R. Martinez, Yroen Guaya B. Melgar, David Jan E. Mercado, Jose Alvaro Severino C. Nito, Teresa Rivera, Mary Joy Roxas, Lean Alfred B. Santos, Katrina Monica T. Cajucom, Wilrose M. Gorumba, Catherine J. Locsin, Krista Kyla D. Seachon, Martin Q. Verdejo, Francesca Nicole C. Torres, Summer M. Manzano, and Mary Althea M. Rendal. #
