Muslim Graduate Shares Inspiring Experience In Catholic School UST

A Muslim graduate from Santo Tomas (UST) shared her experience during her five-year stay in a catholic institution. 

Jomana Lomangco, who graduated cum laude with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Accountancy said that she never felt discriminated or even treated less just because she is a Muslim.

"NEVER have I felt discriminated in the four walls of the university. NEVER have I felt less just because I’m a Muslim. NEVER did they leave me out just because of my faith," She wrote in her Facebook post.

She admitted that her decision to stay in a catholic school was questioned by others, that she might convert her faith into Christian.

But she continued and finished her dream with high honor, realizing everything that whatever faith she had, may it be Christianity or Islam, is to be human.

"And to be human is to respect and accept each other in spite of the differences in our beliefs," She explained.

"As a Muslim who took up a few Theology courses, I’ve learned to look at our similarities rather than our differences. And I think that’s exactly what this world needs," She added.
