John Micheal “Mike” Cuepo

Mike Cuepo, presently a Filipino teacher in Xavier, graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University with a degree in Communication Technology Management. However, he does not only limit his interactions and communication expertise with his students in the classroom. More commonly known as Mr. Cueps by students, peers and co-teachers alike, he actively participates in many of the school’s special programs and extra-curricular activities. He was once the head moderator of Xavier’s Voice of the Youth Concert Committee and is now currently the team leader for the Xavier China Experience: Yunnan, a special program of the school wherein Xaverians are sent to Yunnan, China to learn about their roots and their culture. Mr. Cueps is also into the theater arts as he performs in various plays staged by Ateneo’s Entablado. A jack-of-all-trades in many aspects, one may say. However, it wasn’t all sunny days and fair weather for, Mr. Cueps. Mike Cuepo’s inspiring and thought-provoking talk touches on his childhood and personal experience as he gives a twist on the ever-relevant topic of bullying.

He recently addressed the Skoll World Forum in Oxford and was the Keynote Speaker in the 50th Anniversary of the Ramon Magsaysay Awards together with the late President Cory Aquino.

Mark Ryan Tan

Mark Ryan Tan, apart from being a high school student, is known for a great deal of other things. Something he proudly calls himself is a writer. He loves stories, and he loves characters. Everything, from the nitty-gritty to the seemingly mundane, breathes life into the personalities we encounter both in stories and in real life. And every person is the star of his or her own story, after all.This pursuit of the understanding of the human spirit entrances him, captivates him. He yearns to know the stories behind the faces that make up the people around him. We are the sum of our stories, after all, and every story deserves a storyteller.

Paolo Trinidad

Family counselor Paolo Trinidad was always looking for new ways to improve his work. One day, he stumbled upon laughter yoga and decided to enroll. Here he found a tool not only for achieving happiness, but also for healing emotions and the spirit as well. Having gotten interested in the subject, he traveled all the way to India to learn the art from the founder of Laughter Yoga International himself, Dr. Madan Kataria. After finishing his training in India, he returned to the Philippines to practice the art, being one of only two certified Laughter Yoga Professors in the country.

After shaking off her endometrial cancer, she was once again diagnosed to have cancer in 2012, this time with stage 3B breast cancer. Despite all this, she decided to look at the bright side of things, remained positive about her condition, and was considered one of Makati Medical Center’s happiest patients.

Rosanna Lopez

Rosanna is a designer, researcher, technologist and educator, whose interests lie at the intersection of digital media and learning.

As a designer, Rosanna is passionate about innovation in user experience, games, and interactive design. She is also interested in designing new learning spaces, both physical and virtual, that support collaboration, peer-to-peer learning, inquiry, experimentation and youth-driven production.

As a researcher, Rosanna explores new trends in the fields of education and human-centered design, synthesizing this knowledge with cutting edge technologies that can inform the way we think about learning in the 21st century. Currently, Rosanna is also thinking up new ways to innovate the way we work, by structuring deliverables as design challenges, reordering the work day and finding new opportunities for professional development.

As a technologist and educator, Rosanna explores the ways by which mobile and web-based apps, geo-tagged data, social networks, physical computing and games may provide situated learning environments where learners are encouraged to tinker, experiment, problem solve, engage in iterative design and share their work within communities of practice and with the public at large.

Most of all, Rosanna loves working with children and communities, helping foster meaningful interactions within and between communities through people and technology.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED 

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a four-day conference in California 25 years ago, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with multiple initiatives. The annual TED Conference invites the world’s leading thinkers and doers to speak for 18 minutes. Their talks are then made available, free, at TED.com. TED speakers have included Bill Gates, Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sir Richard Branson, Nandan Nilekani, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Isabel Allende and UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The annual TED Conference takes place in Long Beach, California, with simulcast in Palm Springs; TEDGlobal is held each year in Oxford, UK. TED’s media initiatives include TED.com, where new TEDTalks are posted daily, and the Open Translation Project, which provides subtitles and interactive transcripts as well as the ability for any TEDTalk to be translated by volunteers worldwide. TED has established the annual TED Prize, where exceptional individuals with a wish to change the world are given the opportunity to put their wishes into action; TEDx, which offers individuals or groups a way to organize local, independent TED-like events around the world; and the TEDFellows program, helping world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities.

Xavier School (光啓学校) is a Jesuit Catholic college preparatory school with a distinct Chinese and Filipino character. Founded and managed by the Society of Jesus, the school is a K-12 school, offering a three-level curriculum: Early Education, Grade School, and High School.
Xavier School’s educational philosophy is based on the 400-year old tradition of Jesuit education: the formation of an individual who is a product of a liberal education, with a special concern for the development of personal discipline, a drive for the pursuit of academic excellence, and a commitment to service.
Combining the best of tradition with innovation, Xavier School has launched new programs to promote its thrusts of Innovation, Internationalization, and Information Technology.
Among its pioneering efforts are the six-week China Overseas Programs, One2One student-centered learning, technology-enhanced instruction, to mention a few.
In its pursuit of excellence, Xavier School benchmarks its standards locally with the Jesuit Basic Education Commission, and internationally, through Singapore’s International Primary School Leaving Examination (iPSLE), the US College Board’s Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT), and Beijing’s Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi (汉语水平考试 / HSK).
Xavier School is PAASCU Level 3 Certified, the highest accreditation given by the Philippine Association of Accrediting Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) to basic education institutions.
Xavier School is also an IB World School, authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), a rigorous and innovative academic program recognized by universities worldwide
