“Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam”

Ever since I was in kindergarten, my classmates and I would have to write that motto on the top part of every quiz, homework and exam that we had to take. Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam means “for the greater glory of God” in English and learning those 4 short yet impactful words is a prime example of the things I’ve learned from studying in a Jesuit school in the Philippines called the Ateneo de Manila University. From kindergarten up to my senior year of high school, I’ve always been surrounded by roman collared Jesuit priests, silver monuments of Catholic saints and a population of inspired and hardworking Ateneans. People say that one’s most formative years are during high school and coming from the Ateneo de Manila, I can definitely attest to that. I’ve had so many experiences wherein I discovered who I really was, I’ve overcome difficulties I nevear thought I could, I’ve created friendships that will last for a life time and most importantly, I was able to connect and establish a solid relationship with God.

Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, For the Greater Glory of God.
