I like what I wrote for my bio when I was an NCIIA Student Ambassador:
Juan Carlo Pascua is above all, a surfer. Seemingly lackadaisical and at times aloof, his value system is not based on dollars, but on waves. You couldn’t suspect this by his academic history. Like many college freshman he was overly confident. A double major in psychology and civil engineering, he saw plenty of dollars in his future. His selfishness ended when he completed his first course in social justice and community.
Learning of a world bigger than his superficial desires saw him become involved and invested in helping others. In researching for a seminar he was to teach, Juan Carlo came across all the global problems to be realized by climate change. Deciding to focus on the solution: renewable energy, he became a member of an adventurous research group that studied the renewable energy of highly sustainable Denmark. After contemplating for ages why impressive energy solutions go unused in America, he decided to enter a business competition with a plan to fund clean technology. With his entrepreneur spirit lit, he began considering business and technology solutions that address the triple bottom line: people, planet, and profit. At the end, he would like to own and operate a sustainable surfboard shop.
As such this blog is provided to address the two most important issues of our time: energy and relationships. There are no ads and no affiliate marketing because I’d rather focus on the writing. Someday maybe I’ll find a way to monetize my time here, but for now I would like feedback on my ideas and generate some conversations on solutions.
Anchora Imparo. And so are you.
