        • Mirror: A Short Video Adaptation of Sylvia Plath

          We live in a society right now which is mainly composed of teenagers and adolescents obsessed with social media. From Instagram, to Facebook, to Twitter, we can’t help but follow or like accounts and pages of celebrities that we look up to. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with that. It only becomes bad when it reaches a point wherein we glorify their images too much that, in return, we feel insecure, ugly, and hopeless. This is an effect of the power of media and how it that it can dictate the “norm” from what is not. And, almost all of the time, this affects the way that girls look at their selves. We are blinded by what “beautiful” is supposed to look like and we get misled by all of these starving and artificial models. If we get exposed to this portrayal of beauty too much, how will we ever look at ourselves in the mirror again without thinking – “I am not enough.”? Literary reference: "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath: I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions. Whatever I see I swallow immediately Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike. I am not cruel, only truthful ‚ The eye of a little god, four-cornered. Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall. It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers. Faces and darkness separate us over and over. Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me, Searching my reaches for what she really is. Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon. I see her back, and reflect it faithfully. She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands. I am important to her. She comes and goes. Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness. In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish. ##

                Puso 2 is a video ad that highlights the University of the Philippines Cebu as the national university's campus in the Central Visayas; an academic institution that takes its character from the region's quintessential food fare, puso (hanging rice). As it drums up itself as the centre of creativity, innovation, and service, it also reflects on it's role as nurturer of knowledge and learning; a catalyst of inspiration for generations of students seeking their destined place in nation building.

                  Six students from AACS’ robotics team “Brick Warriors” successfully defended their title at this past winter's FIRST LEGO League state championship. Over the past months, the team built and programmed an autonomous robot, demonstrated gracious professionalism by helping other teams, and designed an innovative solution to fit this year’s theme, World Class Learning. Recognized as a “powerhouse” by other schools now, the team earned the highest score out of the 50 teams competing, and their robot was the only one that completed the hardest task, which was appropriately named “Out-of-the-box thinking”. The team also helped mentor other teams inside FIRST LEGO League and held a series of robot workshops at a tutoring program in Detroit. For their science project, the team created a new tool for learning world language vocabulary. They wrote a PHP-based website (qrtranslate.org) that generates QR codes and translates them to text and audio in 23 different languages. Their tool has been used over ten thousand times in 170 countries. As state champions, the Ann Arbor Christian School team will represent Michigan at the FIRST LEGO League World Festival, held in St. Louis, MO in April 2015. The school wishes to particularly thank Coach Peter Chen who had mentored and guided the students over three outstanding seasons.
