Vince Lombardi once said that “The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary”, this is very much true since we all know that success comes from Hard WORK, Dedication, and Perseverance.
One can say that it is already a tradition for UAP – UAE Dubai Chapter through Special Professional Licensure Board Examinations – Foreign Licensure Examination for Architects (SPLBE – FLEA) that each year since it started in 2009, a new batch of Architects are produced with a unique batch name that describes their unique experience throughout their journey in getting their Professional License, and Batch Azmia is no different.
This new batch of Architects came victorious as they gathered in the halls of The Address Dubai Mall on October 22, 2016 wearing their fanciest gowns and dresses, and sharp-looking suits and ties accompanied by their closest friends and loved ones. The event is to celebrate their successful journey that took seven (7) month of arduous preparation and passing the examinations which are not easy tasks. This ceremony marks the culmination of their tenacity and hard work.
This occasion was graced with the presence of distinctive guests namely: UAP National President Ar. Guillermo Hisancha, UAP National Executive Vice President Ar. Maria Nina Bailon Arce, former UAP National President Ar. Ramon Mendoza, PRBOA Chairman Ar. Robert Sac, PRC Commissioner Ar. Angeline Chua Chiaco, and Philippine Consul General to Dubai H.E. Paul Raymund Cortes alongside with the whole UAP – UAE Dubai Chapter officers and SPLBE – FLEA Dubai mentors.
The Oath was facilitated by PRBOA Chairman Ar. Robert Sac where he gave an impactful and inspiring talk to Batch Azmia as they take their oath and establishing the concept that what they are about to embark is no walk in the park and that by doing so corresponds to certain obligations and responsibilities to our community, to our people, to our country and to the whole world and its entirety.
Oftentimes we ravel on things that we thought we wanted, things that we put as a goal, and things that we thought that would make us complete, that would validate what we do. Having that license and taking that oath is not the end but instead is just the beginning. Finally becoming a licensed Architect is a lifetime achievement and it also opens doors to opportunities to contribute to the Art, to our Professional Community, and to our Society.
Congratulations Batch Azmia and welcome to UAP, welcome home to UAP – UAE Dubai Chapter Family!!!
