Ms. Marie Crissle Celino brings pride to World Citi Colleges as she ranked 9th on the board exam with 86.05% out of 856 takers.
We also have successful examinees namely Oliver S. Bautista, Yawsha M. Dumlao, Cliff Anthony M. Espera, Abighail Micah Hernandez, Jerrica Anne D. Plaza, Danica Reeza O. Santiago and Jenica Mae Tuviera.
The WCC hosted a testimonial ceremony for the successful examinees last March 9, 2017 at WCC- Gymnasium, attended by the faculty members, students and administration of the school.
Ms. Celino, in her inspirational message stated that her uncle served as her inspiration for her to take up Physical Therapy. She narrated that when she was in 5th grade her mom was diagnosed with brain cancer and was unable to walk as the cancer progressed. Her uncle planned a home PT program for her mom and taught the family members how to do it. With this, she decided to take up Physical Therapy to help people get back on their feet and make the most out of their ability despite their disability.
She also thanked her Alma Mater that guided and supported her to reach her goal to be a top notcher. According to her, the good study habits, knowing the value of time management and having the determination to top the board exam helped her to be the 9th placer.
Lastly, she said that she is planning to be a lecturer and a clinician at the same time to share her knowledge and skills to the students who aspire to be a health care professional with strong dedication to help patients overcome their disability and improve their functional capacity.
Congratulations Ms. Celino and to our new Physical Therapists!!! Your WCC family is proud of you!
