The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

Autism Society Philippines held the Quiz “A” last month, sponsored by the House of Representatives. We sang the Lupang Hinirang (national anthem) and listened to the introduction of participants.

When the event started, I patiently watched the students from the Grade School Category take their quiz with confidence. Then, I took a break.

I’m into politics and current events and my core interests are surfing the net, reading, etc. With the help of my parents and my teacher Ms. Evangeline “Ebot” De Leon, I prepared myself for the competition by reviewing general information. I encouraged myself to have a positive attitude.

As the time passed, I prayed that the quiz will go through smoothly. I took the High School Category Quiz with confidence and power. When the quiz was done, I gallantly gave my paper to the judge. My hopes climbed. I was confident to win.

I eventually got first place, which made this the best day of 2011. I’m proud to be a winner of the Quiz “A”!
