In 2016, Chiqui Agoncillo successfully stamped her name in the history of her college department by being the first female summa cum laude with a BA Kasaysayan degree at the University of the Philippines-Diliman.
Chiqui Agoncillo is one of the four (4) person to graduate summa cum laude from the same department in UP history.
What made history attractive to a young Filipino like her? What are her tips to UP students who are struggling with their studies? What’s her advice to young Filipinos who want to learn more about history? How did her liberal arts education influence her world view and shape her decisions?
These are just some of the questions that Agoncillo answers during her chat with MovePH’s Raisa Serafica at 4 pm on Saturday, April 14, to talk about her UP education, studying history, and the importance of liberal arts education. – Rappler.com
