Especially for aspiring chefs, filmmakers, and pilots in the country! Which of these careers do you want to pursue?

Whether it’s one or all of the above, we took the initiative and scouted some schools in Cebu to help you decide on your future alma mater. While there are a lot of options to choose from, we can start with these five local schools which scream #CebuanoPride loud and proud. Sugdan na nato!
