November is a winning month for Communication and Journalism students who made multiple milestones in different fields.
New Managing Director
One of the most significant achievements made recently came from CJD alum Paulus Miguel Soriano, who was promoted to Managing Director of BRANDCOMM Asia.
A graduate of DLSU-D’s Communications program in 2012, Soriano honed his skills in public relations for more than a decade, working with local and global brands in the fields of consumer and enterprise technology, travel, finance, tourism, and other sectors.
In his new role, he is expected to drive the agency to new heights by supervising the company’s operations, people, and ventures to maintain its growth.
Shortlisted for Film Festivals
Not one, but two films from AB Communication students made it to the shortlist of this year’s 3 Shots Film Fest. Gabriel Subida Ramos’ “Sa Ating Huling Sandali”, as well as Erika Reyes’ “Sana nasa Sana” were announced among the 20 finalists that will be screened in December at the Cinemateque Center in Manila.
The 3 Shots Film Fest is presented by MUD Studios in association with the Film Development Council of the Philippines and Cinematheque Centre Manila.
This news came at the heels of another student film by Erika Reyes, Patrick Adam Cimacio, Vincent Rodriguez, and Shane Jhastin Picson’s entitled “Misdirected” being selected for four major categories of the 2022 Student World Impact Film Festival. read more
Meanwhile, sophomore AB Comm student Ian Flores was selected as a Philippine Participating Youth in the annual Ship for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Program Youth Conference (SSEAYP) conducted by the Cabinet Office of Japan from November 13 to December 18.
Flores, the Chief Executive of the Communication Program Council, was assigned to the discussion group on Media and Information.
“It's very exciting to apply the concepts and knowledge my dear professors have taught me in an international scale. I promise to show the best version of myself, not only as a representative for the Philippines, but also as a Liberal Lasallian and a CJD student,” he said.
Last month, it can be recalled that an article of Broadcast Journalism student Rechilda Estores was featured in Vatican News, which features updates from the Pope, the Church as well as spiritual issues throughout the world. read more
