Aside from that, it will also feature guest speakers for the students such as Chuks Arias, founder of Pinaywrites.com; Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi; Alvin Feron of the Muntinlupa Scholarship Office; Jeanette Salvilla, an entrepreneur and owner of boutique store Fashionology; and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) director Dominique Rubia-Tutay.
The expo, to be held at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex, is open to both private and public school students of the city. This is free of charge.
“We are grateful to partner with the Muntinlupa government in giving students more options after senior high school. Through this expo, we hope to empower students in terms of helping them choose the right options for themselves, such as giving them opportunities to pursue a college education, and preparing them for the right career after graduation,” Edukasyon.ph Chief Executive Officer Henry Motte-Muñoz said.
