It's been my passion performing on stage. Since I was in grade school I am always active in extra curricular activities. I was a member of choir, media, lyre & band, arts etc etc ... But there is one group that I considered my second family above all. It is my theatre group back in College. I was a Masscom student in 1st year College when I joined my 1st ever and last theatre organization, which is Tanghalang Hulyo Beinte Tres Ink (THBTI, T23). I have a lot of memories being a member here doing stage plays, dancing and even singing in front of many people. It helped me a lot with my self confidence and also with my course. I also met here most of my real friends, kumares and friendships that I know will last forever. In addition, I was also trained on how to handle different kinds of people, managing people backstage, being on a production and how to manage your time and many more. I can't really count the experiences that I had or lessons that I learned being in the group because there's a lot.
There, fast forward to 2014. Our group will celebrate the silver anniversary on July 23, 2014. The date itself is where the name came from. It was the date that the organization was founded. It's been years since I've graduated that I had the chance to participate in the yearly celebration because of busy schedules. I was really happy to know that there are still students who is participating in Theatres. The current officers of our group are organizing an event for the anniversary. I, as an alumni is hoping to contribute. And I am hoping that the org that I loved and valued can still continue it's legacy on providing original plays, trainings and promoting good values not just to students but also to our community. Happy 25th year Tanghalang Hulyo Beinte Tres!
