Who’s who? Match the following descriptions with the corresponding presidential candidate found above:

Presidential Candidate no. 1:  “Hindi siya ang class valedictorian but I think he learned the most. Kasi siya ’yung pinaka-successful.  And I’m not just talking about learning from books.”

Presidential Candidate no. 2:  “successor of Ricky Avancena [grandson of President Manuel Quezon] as president of the class… coolest guy with the hottest temper.”

Presidential Candidate no. 3:  “still the same humble guy we knew way back in his college years… brilliant, very intelligent; he answers questions very well… knows what he says but in a very unassuming way.”

The Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism published on its website a series of stories about the gigs, gimmicks and exploits in college of  three candidates for president–the Liberal Party’s Benigno C. Aquino III, the Nacionalista Party’s Manuel B. Villar Jr., and the Lakas-Kampi’s Gilberto C. Teodoro Jr. Find out the answers: The College Lives of the Presidential Candidates
