While revising the script, I stumbled upon Prof. Winnie Monsod’s lecture at the UP School of Economics. It made the rounds on Facebook some years back — didn’t realize it was eight years ago! Took up an Econ class in UP as a GE subject, but Mrs. Monsod wasn’t my prof. This is the closest I got to having her as a teacher. I remember tearing up when I watched this on Facebook eight years ago. Almost made me cry too now as I watched it again. OA haha, but maybe because today’s also the UP MBT’s first Finals appearance in 32 years. UP kong mahal. UP naming mahal.
Sharing with you the video, and I hope it touches your heart too, whether you’re from UP or not.
