I am Ronald Ednalan Jr., a Political Science student at the University of the Philippines Manila. It is my ultimate dream to be a lawyer in the future, if God permits. If not, I look forward to being a part of the local government. I am very much interested in fields such as Indigenous People, Women and Children, Development and Underdevelopment, Society and Processes Movements, Research and Fieldworks, Philippine History, Classical and Contemporary Philippine Literature, Political Behavior, Sociology, Psychology, Ethics and Morality, Public Administration (National and Local Governance), and Constitutional Law. Furthermore, working in the Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) industry from April 2010 to March 2013, I can say that I am well-versed in customer service, financial transactions and collections. Being considered as one of top agents my previous job, I was given supervisory tasks to prepare me for future promotions. I handled schedule monitoring, team management, mentoring, driving compliance and the like. In my years in the academe, I can say that I have good analytic skills in research and writing. Being a campus journalist from elementary to college, I received various and rigorous training in journalism, research and publication. Aside from these, I have been exposed and received proper training in Microsoft applications such as MS Word, MS Powerpoint, MS Excel and MS Publisher (XP, 2007 and 2010). Being a working student for almost three years (November 2010 to March 2013), I have developed time management skills and priority setting. In between working, sleeping and going to school, I had to have time to study for previous lessons, for upcoming examinations and to finish required papers and readings. Despite all these, I still remained optimistic. I have also developed positive working attitude and good interpersonal skills. I know that everything happens for a reason. I have a dream and I will not stop until I reach that dream. In the process, I may falter but I will remain resilient. All these sum up my work ethics – being responsible to finish every task at hand one step at a time.
