Leads wore their national attires during cultural night to understand more about connecting with the community through tech.

Francis Prim Pagunuran (BSIT-II), was among the Google Developer Student Clubs (DSC) leads who participated in the annual DSC summit last September 6-8 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Prior to his designation as one of the DSC leads, Pagunuran, along with the other IT students in the country, underwent several screenings and interviews until they were shortlisted to 19 official DSC leads representing Philippines for the said gathering.

Alavi, a fellow DSC Lead from Malaysia assisted in the workshop on Google Cloud Platform Big Query and showed how the DSC program must help others in understanding Google Tech.

“At first I was overwhelmed by great number of people who were also chosen and the work I need to do. I admit that I lack experience compared with the other delegates. But as I met these people, I realized that as leads, there is no such thing as competition, for we are united towards the goal of DSC of reaching our the community through technology and IT advancement,” said Pagunuran.

Meanwhile, the aforementioned event aims to solve the challenges university IT graduates were facing especially in technology industry, thereby summoning the DSC leads to initiate action plans addressing the said issue in their respective universities.

The 98 Developer Student Club Leads from South East Asia Region gathered in-front of the Petronas Twin Tower.

As part of the summit’s goal, the three day event comprised activities advancing the DSC leads’ IT knowledge and skills, and ways on how they can implement their projects and IT-related advocacies in their respective universities.

“As of now, my goal as DSC lead is to be prominent to my Paulinian schoolmates in need of knowledge, skills, and outputs related to information technology,” shared Pagunuran.
