I have been part of the technical crew, mostly as a cameraman, that cover the university’s graduation ceremonies for the past three years.

 

 

I have seen the tears of overwhelming joy fall from the eyes of the graduates and their parents.

 

 

I have seen two inseparable bestfriends hug very tightly.

 

 

I have seen the graduates relish the moment as they raise their phones to what their arms can reach so that they could take groupies and selfies one last time.

 

 

I have seen these heartwarming scenes, and I am very much overjoyed that I don’t just get to see them this May. I get to experience them myself.

 

 

From a student behind the camera, I will now be one of the graduates who will be, literally, caught by the camera I used to operate.

 

 

Thankful to God as I am today, I am but a humble graduate ready to take on the world and open new doors.

 

 

This is James Aquino, signing off…
