For Jet Law Fabia, moving to Manila to enter Senior High School at FEU High School was a true learning experience which taught him independence, social skills, and adaptability. Enrolling at FEU HS was Jet’s chance to be part of what was deemed “a very competitive community,” and thus, a new consciousness was born in him to “exceed (my) limits one step at a time.”
“Even before becoming a student in the school,” Jet shares, “I have already heard about the perks of becoming a Tamaraw and the skills that I can gain when I become one. I have always seen FEU as a training ground of extremely competitive and passionate individuals. For the past two years, I never had an ounce of regret of being part of this brave community.”
Despite coming to FEU HS as someone unfamiliar to the realities of Manila schools and the challenges that come with studying in one, such as the cultural differences and the adjustments in using technology for learning, the “open and accepting culture of the school” made it easy for Jet to adapt. Having teachers who were approachable and making friends along the way made adjusting to a new environment manageable.
Jet describes the #FEUHighAdvantage experience as a “rollercoaster ride”, one that was thrilling, exciting, and alive throughout his journey. FEU HS gave him “the key to a clearer goal in life.” During the pandemic’s more challenging times, access to Canvas eased the learning experience, especially as teachers made themselves accessible to the students to help in any struggles they may be facing. Jet’s favorite subject at FEU HS is General Biology 1 and 2 and his courses under the STEM Strand fueled a passion to pursue a medical path even more.
Aside from academics, being able to participate in school events such as “Tatak Tamaraw” and “One Concierto Piyu” created the full high school experience for Jet. He treasures his memories of the Freedom Park and the Christmas season at FEU HS, as well as working with the Junior Advocate Club on their club activities. Taking pictures with his fellow club members in front of FEU’s annual Christmas tree is a cherished memory. Although there were moments where balance between school activities, leadership, and personal life were tough, Jet believes that his drive and determination allowed him to eventually figure out a healthy way of juggling his responsibilities.
Transitioning to Grade 12 during the time of the pandemic was a difficult time for Jet just as much as for his fellow students. While the mental fatigue was real, Jet also remembers the academic breaks, the adjustments on the deadlines, and the continuous support of GoCare. As a farewell message to FEU HS, Jet said, “The two years with you have certainly been tough, however it got more manageable over time. Thank you for letting me meet some of the best people and ensuring that we have amazing teachers. I will forever treasure you in my heart, FEU.”
