Isang Napakagandang Estudyante na Minaliit at Sinabihang Bobo, Ngayon ay Nakapag-tapos siya ng Tatlong Kurso!


Our lives would be downright incomplete if we didn’t have our own dreams. Some dreams may appear small, though some of which appear big and some may deem as too ambitious, at least that’s what other people say to Wynona Pauline Catapang, who was ridiculed with countless remarks similar to that. But this superwoman proves her haters not to underestimate the perseverance of someone who dreams big.

Wynona was among those who were deemed as too dull-minded to stay in college for five years. Little did they know that this lady is taking three undergraduate degrees at once.


Wynona, then, vented out her 5-year college experience through a lengthy graduation post on Facebook. She started her post with the pessimistic remarks she received,

“Ay bobo 5 years na sa college

Wala ka pang napapatunayan

Masyadong ambisyosa”




Wynona looked back to the various stress factors she has encountered.

“5 years. 5 years of hardships, stress, and tears. I remembered the days na nagkasabay ang thesis ng psych at masscom. Psych classes sa morning, production sa hapon hanggang gabi. Thesis pagkauwi. Shoot sa mga delikadong lugar while writing Psychological report. Thesis defense sa Masscom tapos thesis proposal naman sa Psych. Di magkanda ugaga every first day of sem kasi laging overlapping yung subjects sa given sched. Pabalik balik kay Dean at sa Reg para lang maayos yung sched. Different faces for every subject. Haha. Parang irreg ang peg. Laging nahuhuli sa mga announcement kasi wala sariling classrep. Kapagod.”




She reminisced about the hurdles she had to leap over in order to move forward.

“Then I was then questioning myself, worth it pa ba lahat? I was about to give up and drop my other course. It was so hard to maintain a cut-off grade especially that both of my courses have quota grade of B minus. Ang taas beshie. Both courses pa. There was a time na na-on probation na ko kasi naleleft behind ko na yung isang course. Tapos this Feb, I was so stressed sa thesis because of the deadline tapos my lola died pa.”




“But then I guess God took me to this path and I had to deal with it. Kahit sabi ng iba wala pa kong napapatunayan sa mundo, na ambisyosa ako, I believe this would have been my greatest achievement in life as of now—to receive three degrees at the age of 21.”

“But then I guess God took me to this path and I had to deal with it. Kahit sabi ng iba wala pa kong napapatunayan sa mundo, na ambisyosa ako, I believe this would have been my greatest achievement in life as of now- to receive 3 degrees at the age of 21.”

She then revealed her secret, which is “diskarte.”

The St. Scholastica’s College graduate thanked those people who helped her throughout her journey. She started off with her friends, then her parents who provided her needs and supported her in achieving her milestone.

The hardworking gal capped off her post with her name along with the degrees she has attained,

“CATAPANG, WYNONA PAULINE MAGBANUA

Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication minor in Development Communication

Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Bachelor of Arts in Guidance and Counseling

5-YEAR LIA/LIA PROGRAM”
