Martin, a student from North Geelong Secondary College, dreams to become a lawyer. With the support of Skyline, he looks forward to experimenting different paths and achieving both short and long-term goals. Martin also hopes to be inspired by other Skyliners and achieve his full potential.
Martin’s cultural upbringing was often different from others and because of this, was faced with challenges. However, he learnt to take even more pride in his Filipino culture and rebuilt his confidence. With this courage, Martin is extremely proud of being elected as the Year 10 Captain and the homeroom captain for 3 years. He is always motivated by his siblings and lives by his brother’s quote: “to be a great leader, you have to be a great follower”.
In his spare time, Martin enjoys singing, playing badminton and drawing. He is also most passionate about his faith which has taught him altruism, patience, forgiveness, and respect, and hopes to pass this onto others.
