Leading senatorial candidate Grace Poe inspired Philippine Air Transport and Training Services (PATTS) graduates during their commencement exercise over the weekend.
“Humayo kayo at maging biyaya sa mundo! Fly high and soar in the skies, PATTS graduates!” said Poe.
Poe said she is fond giving commencement speeches because she was a former schoolteacher before she entered politics.
The reelectionist senator said it fills her heart with happiness to see her students finish the school year with confidence and hope.
“Ako po ay dating school teacher. I always look forward to giving commencement speeches. It reminds me of seeing my own students at the end of the school year. Somehow, all grown-up, and leaving school with hope and confidence,” she added.
