From Consistent Valedictorian to Student Activist-Campus Journalist
Regel graduated class valedictorian both in elementary and high school. In college, he joined a progressive student organization while he was just starting off living an iskolar ng bayan life as a freshman on one of the campuses of the largest university in the country when it comes to student population—the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP)—for decades, it has been a “bastion of student activism.”
Still, as a freshman, Regel also joined the progressive official student publication of the PUP-Taguig campus, The Chronicler, as a staff writer. As a sophomore, he held the assistant editor position, and then as a junior, he eventually became its editor-in-chief until he graduated.
Despite battling financial struggle on the one hand and confronting a series of campus repression and filial obligations on the other hand, Regel Javines finished his bachelor’s degree in Office Administration on time in 2007. However, he was not able to attend the commencement exercises due to an unfortunate event that happened to him almost a month before graduation.
Then, untimely, he enrolled in a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a specialization in Marketing Management in 2014 at PUP Graduate School, Sta. Mesa, Manila. Due to a lack, primarily, of sufficient financial resources, he decided to leave the graduate program.
At present, he is working on his Master of Arts (M.A.) in Philosophy at the University of San Carlos attempting to understand both life and existence through the lens of gnostic spirituality and ontological mathematics.
