a lovable person."
Claro M. Recto

as successful, if not more."

nurse. But it gave me prestige, it taught
me to think, it gave me self-confidence, it
taught me to argue for nursing.

who is broadly educated, cultured - not
merely well-informed but unafraid to
express her views since she is sure
whereof she stands - perceptive, creative
and constructively critical.
