May 19, 2022The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible. During pandemic, meeting face-to-face and physical engagements during sessions, collaborations and info sessions seemed so far fetched considering the life threatening posed by Covid. Now that we can look at each other in the eye, hold hands together while properly observing protocols, (without mask during picture taking only), the exciting opportunities can indeed be held, experienced and shared. ย ย ย ย ย ย  Thank you so much Benguet State University Family.
