We’re proud to announce 2012’s Gawad Felix H. Limcaoco Awardee Ms. Raizel Macaraeg. To recap, the Gawad Felix H. Limcaoco award is given to the most outstanding working student to graduate from the Pamantasan ng Cabuyao.
Raizel is 22 years old and is a graduate of BS Psychology, Cum Laude (Grade point average:1.54). She is also a Research Awardee, which is given to the graduate with the best thesis.
Raizel has 7 siblings, is the second from the eldest, and is the breadwinner of the family. She works full time as a call center agent in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, ever since she was 18 years old.
Raizel stopped her studies when her father’s business went bankrupt. She was then a 3rd year nursing student from another school but due to financial difficulties, she started looking for work to support her family and continue her studies.
