My name is Francis Inson Cabatt y Miranda De Leon (Also known as Ran Fujizen). I was born on the first sapphire-sky dawn of September 1996, in Santiago City, Philippines. I grew up in our family home in Alta Vista with my sisters and my grandmother. We had so much fun. For elementary, I enrolled in Santiago South Central School. It was a public school and yet, the lessons are very informative and interesting. We trained mostly in home economics like cooking, farming, cleaning, sewing and many more. When I graduated, I said to myself; “there’s another brand new life that I should pass”. But then, I do not treat them as a hindrance because it is one of the building blocks to make roads of my life.
After that, my mother enrolled me in University of La Salette High School, a private catholic school where my elder sister, mother and father working there as teachers. I founded the word ‘Excellence’ when I’m a freshman. I became the top one of our class. Yet, I realized when I faced the not-clandestine mirror that I was not good and deserving to become one of the creams of the crop. Because I’m very voracious and grade-conscious on that time, I feel like I’m very arrogant and prideful so that I don’t have many friends on that moment. When I continue struggling in my life, I still searching for the word excellence and I found out many words that also present in my life’s road. There are Mary’s fiat, stewardship, solidarity, penance, prayer and zeal.
