    Meet Ms. Marisol Panganiban, BS Information Technology Batch 2018

    “Breaking the IT Stereotype”

    Stereotypes (until now) play a strong role in the IT industry. But for a woman thinking about her future profession, stereotypes might feel so strong that she doesn’t even think of it. Meet our featured alumna for today, Ms. Marisol Panganiban.

    Marisol is a graduate of BS Information Technology batch 2018. As a student, she was a dreamer, hardworking, and passionate. She was introduced to computers when was still a young. “My father, being a former Navy computer programmer, became my inspiration to pursue a career in IT someday. And now, I’m a SAP ABAP Developer in IBM Philippines”, she says.

     As a SAP ABAP Developer, she develops, sets up, configures, and enhances SAP ABAP Programmer codes to meet the current and future requirements and to support company’s initiatives. She also designs and maintains converter interface programs between SAP and PC-based systems to make data conversion from external file to SAP possible.

    Like a normal college student, she had her ups and downs. But she was able to continue through the help of her friends, family, and professors who had been her inspirations to continue fighting for her goal. 

    “Bearing in mind what my professor (Mam Cheeky Villamarzo) always tell us “If kaya nila, Kaya mo din”, I always strive for the best to be where I am today, never relying on luck to achieve it because we are the ones to write our own path.”

    After writing her future, she entrusted to SACLI the big part of preparing for the real battle— the real world outside the school premises. She has set goals along the way but not all were realized. But those that were realized were really appreciated and well-deserved because of the hard work and sacrifices not only she made but also her parents whom she gives most credits to.
