DOST-PAGASA

“Growing up in the outskirts of Southern Leyte, I never imagined myself working in DOST-PAGASA. Thanks to Project CoMET and VSU's extensive training and network, I'm able to collaborate with some of the country's best climatologists. My journey has taught me that no matter where you are, you can have big dreams”.
