LOOK: Chedz Alvarez completes Masters in National Security at NDCP
She also got a special medal during graduation.
The hard work of Negros Occidental Rep. Mercedes Alvarez has finally paid off as she rose to the stage to claim her diploma for Masters in National Security Administration Program at the National Defense College of the Philippines.
The politiko put arduous work for a year under the special program, which came as she was balancing life as a politiko and as a newlywed. Still, she managed to pull it off with a bronze medal for best thesis to match.
No congresswomen were harmed during the MNSA program 😂😂😂 Top picture was taken last October 2016 as we were officially enrolled as MNSA Scholars. Bottom picture taken on September 15, 2017 as MNSA Graduates! To my recruiter, buddy, comforter, guardian angel, ninang and sister, fellow Congresswoman since 2010, Maricar, Zamora, THANK YOU! There were times you felt responsible for me, especially in my darkest moments in NDCP, but believe me … this was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my entire life! I will miss you, you might not miss me but you cant get rid of me! Because I will still be pestering you and will forever be hanging out inside your office and in ComVal! Hahaha! I love you!
It helped that her fellow congresswoman Maricar Zamora went through the same cycle with her. Congratulations!
