Your challenge is to continue being inspirations even after being acknowledged.

Ma. Lourdes Eudela, Corps d’Elite 2015 inspirational speaker, challenged the student leaders to continue pushing for excellence in their chosen fields, Feb. 28 at Santuario de La Salle.

“Every recognition is an invitation to do better than what you have shown,” said Eudela, who was then awarded in her college days the CdE Outstanding Outreach Work, a now defunct category.

She currently works as a Project Team Leader for the Philippine Red Cross. She previously worked as UNICEF Information Management Officer for Child Protection in the United Nations Office for Coordination Humanitarian Affairs.

“Every affirmation is a challenge to push the cause and continue to excel in the craft that we have chosen to embrace,” Eudela continued.
