convening some of history’s greatest men and women yesterday was easy. 

collage bsa-1c

a final requirement in my EN 103 class, it became a showdown of eloquent speakers when they delivered their originally written empowerment speeches, inspired by idris elba’s cancelling the apocalypse speech from the film “pacific rim”.

what a momentous finale to academic year 2013-2014!
i did not only rub elbows with these leaders and heroes and listen to their advocacies, but i get to finally dress up as one of my dreamed characters. 
the genuine evita peron
the genuine evita perón
entering my BSA-1C class in my evitaperón attire, i made sure that i would create the desired ambiance for both world-renowned and infamous personalities. and not only that. i had to prepare my spot because i knew that my students would be clamoring for my speech. Smiley
with gabriela silang, my alter ego in the philippine setting...hahaha

chanting “perón! perón! perón!” after tokugawa leyaso had ended his speech, my students waited in suspense as i dramatically stood in front and faced them all. then, i did what i have been wanting to do for so long now – singing “don’t cry for me argentina”. hahahahahaha. from a trying hard singer, it took all guts to sing a few lines from the musical before expressing my thoughts that reflected evita’s trademark of her combativeness. 


yesterday, i was evita. tomorrow, for the final examination of my other speech communication class, i will be assuming another character. let me see if my financial management majors would rock our day the way these future accountants and media specialist did.

leaders and heroes can be wacky, too! :-)
