Hi! I am Mary Ann Gento.
I am a determined student at Jose Rizal University, taking a course of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy. I am a woman who has a lot of dreams in life, for my loved ones and for myself; and I am determined to achieve it all, with the help of the Lord. In Him, I trust!
How are you?
Still fighting but honestly, I’ve been feeling unmotivated these past few days. I feel like my performance in school isn’t enough, this really made me sad and worried but I’m really thankful to the Lord because He always made ways to remind me that He is with me and my efforts are seen. I'm also thankful for my loved ones who always remind me that I am doing well and I've improved a lot. Grateful for my life.
How was your online experience at JRU?

My online experience at JRU is great. The canvas that we are using for the synchronous and asynchronous sessions is accessible and easy to use; we can easily see in the calendar if there are any assignments that we need to do and pass. I am also grateful because our professors are really considerate to us, they do understand that this pandemic and the new school setting is really difficult for all of us; they always immediately respond to us, every time we have concerns.
What specific lesson from this course resonated with you?

The specific lesson from this course that resonated with me is the growth mindset. Having a growth mindset is really important in college, it helps me to not give up when things are getting stressful. It helps me believe in myself and especially to the Lord that I will be able to finish this semester and graduate. It helps me to be motivated and determined to do everything that I can, to be able to achieve my goals. It is also helping me to have a different response to failure. It made me realize that making mistakes is completely fine, and it doesn’t have to be a reason for me to stop, but rather, it should be a reason for me to continue and do better next time. 
What are your unforgettable experience during your online classes?

One of the unforgettable moments that I experienced during online class is when our NSTP professor announces the top 10 of the class, and I am so grateful because I am in 2nd rank. I was really happy that time because my efforts pay off, it was all thanks to the Lord. Another unforgettable moment is when we reported in NSTP because I was really nervous that time but with God’s grace, I am able to do a great job.

What are the challenges you encountered during your online class? 
One of the challenges that I encountered during online class is while answering my quizzes, suddenly, our electricity went off or sometimes our internet connection is really not working; this happen to me a lot of times. There are also times when I wasn’t able to participate well in class because our internet connection is really not working. Not to mention, the times where I wasn’t able to focus in class because there are emergencies in our house and responsibilities that I need to do. These are just some of the challenges I encountered during an online class.

How did you overcome these challenges?
I overcome these challenges by seeking help from my professors and classmates. Whenever I have problems with my internet connection, I always message my professors regarding it, and thankfully, they understand. Whenever I wasn’t able to focus in my class or when my internet connection is not working, I always try to study the lesson on my own and just asked questions to my classmates if there is anything I don’t understand.

Is there any life lesson you learned from your online learning journey?
There are many life lessons I’ve learned from my online learning journey. One of them is to be dependent on the Lord and to trust in Him in everything. We all know that there are a lot of uncertainties here on earth and we don’t know what’s ahead of us, so, the only thing we need to do is to trust the Lord and surrender everything to Him because He knows exactly what’s going to happen and what’s meant for us. Another important lesson I’ve learned from my online learning journey is to work hard to be able to achieve our goals. Let us always do our best in everything so that, we don’t have any regrets along the way. Let us remember that we can’t achieve anything if we are not doing anything to change our situation; let’s do our part and trust the Lord to do the rest. Lastly, I learned how important it is, to be grateful even for little things because it gives a positive change in our lives; it makes us happier and contented in life.
