When was the very first time you thought of wanting to become a De La Salle Brother?

There was not a single moment that I consciously thought that I would like to be a Brother. The feeling grew very gradually, progressing from merely liking what they did to realizing that I can contribute.

What made you decide to become a De La Salle Brother?

The decision grew gradually. I initially committed myself as a Postulant for one year; that choice to try things out for one year has now added up to 19.

How did it occur to you that your profession is your calling?

My experience as a student-teacher back in Grade 6 opened up the world of teaching to me. That particular moment made me realize that there is something special about being a teacher.

How do you discern and live out the Lasallian core values of faith, service and communion in your chosen vocation?

The core values are tested every day in the small decisions I make. I try to be understanding and compassionate in the way I treat people.

How will you promote to your fellow young Lasallians the vocation you have chosen? What advice can you give them?

Volunteer in one of the many offerings that are available. Do not be afraid to ask questions and try out things that are different. Also, look closely at your experiences and ask yourself, “Where is God leading me?”
