Prof Solita Monsod’s last lecture in University of the Philippines-Diliman.

An inspirational speech by a professor in University of the Philippines – Diliman, showing her strong determination and beliefs in the Philippines. In her last lecture,  she shows how she constantly believes in the potential and excellence of Filipinos and its is not too late to give up on the Philippines as a country given its recent lively history. In addition, she constantly believes in the students and alumni of the University of the Philippines (as the government’s greatest educational institution), and she have high expectations in these students and alumni.

As a summary, she believes that every student and alumni of the University are the solutions of the country’s problems. However, in order to be part of the solutions, she highly pointed out that these solutions must be present within the country and not outside of the country in order to do their part.

 

 

 

In her lecture, she mentioned one of the famous quotes of Edward Everett Hale which states, “I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And by the grace of God, I will.” This quote that she believes in shows that even one or alone can do something in order to make a change or start a solution.
