8.1 The JSEC Men: Bene Go

Benedick Mervyn S. Go, IV BS Management
As one of Ateneo’s Golden boys, you’d probably recognize Bene as the 4th year SOM Executive Officer of the Sanggunian but there’s much more to this guy than what meet’s the eye. Wanting to try out new things and to figure out what really works best for him, Bene is an active member in various organizations. Goal-oriented and driven, he shares that one should not be limited to worrying about grades as the true mark of success comes with real life experiences. (But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prioritize your studies too Bluebookers!)

As a morning person, his day starts very early at either 7:30 or 8:30am! While most of us are still snoozing our alarms, he’s off to work making the most of his time with unparalleled productivity. Always on the look out for opportunities, his entrepreneurial abilities were put to the test in the very competitive bidding process of opening a JSEC stall. Much to his surprise, he and his friends were able to get in and set up their own burger joint: City Buns. A true entrepreneur at heart, he prefers to have his own business after graduating rather than working in a company. One day, he hopes of using what he has learned to start his own business.

What is he wearing?
Keeping it simple and low-key, he describes his style as very casual and laidback. You would usually spot him wearing one of his “Lazy-day shirts” that he has gathered over the years from the different projects and ors that he has been involved in. He wears what is comfortable to him, especially since this guy is always on the go.

He proves that you don’t need to dress outrageously or wear anything too complicated to stand out from the crowd. Being comfortable with yourself and letting your personality shine through is the secret to confidence. That in itself is sexy.

Advice from the BlueBook: "You can always fail once, so try it!"
