Vizcaya’s cadet is PMA’s number 6

By on April 7, 2017

Philippine Military Academy (PMA) graduation was on March 12 wherein President Rodrigo Roa Duterte was the Guest of Honor and Speaker.

There was a total of 167 1st class cadets that were candidates for graduation and 63 were females.

And with all the candidates, 8 females dominated and the number 6 is from Nueva Vizcaya.

Cadet 1st Class Sheila Joy Ramiro Jallorina, a 21 year old lady cadet of Murong, Bagabag and proud Novo Vizcayano is one of the 8 lady cadets who dominated the top 10 graduating cadets of PMAs “Sanggalang ay Lakas at Buhay na Alay Para sa Kalayaan ng Inang Bayan” (SALAKNIB) Class of 2017.

Aside from being number 6, Cadet 1st Class Jallorina also received other awards which are Tactics Group Award, Department of Leadership plaque, Airforce Professor Courses plaque, Aguinaldo Saber, and Australian Defence Best Over-All Performance Award.

Cadet 1st Class Jallorina is the fifth child of Mrs. Leonida Ramiro Jallorina, an overseas contract worker in Hongkong and Taiwan and Mr. Alejandro Galamgam Jallorina, a farmer of Murong, Bagabag.

According to her mother Leonida, soldiering runs in their blood. Sheila’s grandfathers retired as captains in United States Army. Her eldest brother is a police officer assigned at Camp Crame in Quezon City while another brother, a member of PMA Class of 2005, is an army captain at Camp O’ Donnel in Capas town in Tarlac province. One of her sisters is a police trainee at Camp Nakar RTC 4 in Lucena City.

Cadet 1st Class Jallorina studied for a year as an accountancy student at St. Mary’s University in Bayombong town before she entered the PMA.

In a personal interview of Vizcaya Reporter with Cadet 1st Class Jallorina, she said “Entering PMA was the best choice I’ve ever made. Hindi ko na kailangang isipin kung saan ako kukuha ng pang-tuition, allowance o ng kahit anumang kakailanganin ko sa pag-aaral. Higit sa lahat, di ko na kailangang mangamba kung gaano paghihirapan nila Mama at Daddy ang patapusin ako sa pag-aaral. And PMA gave me this free education and taught me how to become a leader. PMA really helped me in achieving my dreams without carrying the burden of producing money. Most importantly, this is the best gift I’ve received from the Lord Almighty. Those achievements, the fruits of strong determination and perseverance, are the things I would love to give in exchange of the sacrifices of my beloved parents.”

She also encouraged the youth to trail the same path she has chosen. “Take the PMA Challenge. Hanggat nariyan pa ang chance, grab it. Because if there’s something I know I will regret in the future, then that would be when I refused to try joining the long gray line,” said Cadet 1st Class Jallorina. #mccd
