Rovin Banila Alcazar was born on the seventh day of
October 1992 at Barangay Bagumbayan, Santa Maria, Laguna
at exactly12:00 noon. He is the youngest among the three
childrens of Romeo R. Alcazar and Vivian V. Banila. His older
brother is Joel Banila alcazar and his older sister is Irin
Banila Alcazar.He is only one year old when his parents
decided to transfer to Barangay Santol, Mataasnakahoy,
Batangas which is his father’s hometown. His classmates,
cousins and their other relatives call him “uben” for short.
He finished his elementary degree at Bayorbor
Elementary School, Bayorbor, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas,
school at their nearby barangay. It is where he started
dreaming and started to set his goals and objectives in life. It
is also where he had opened his mind about the significance
of education in the lives of each and every child. This is also
the place where he started to gain more and more friends. He
graduated from elementary on the year 2005 and he has been
the salutatorian of their class. So, for him, this is one of the
most unforgettable experiences that once in his life, he had
experience to be a class salutatorian.
He also used to be an altar knight or an altar boy in
their municipal parish church; the Mary Immaculate
Conception of Mataasnakahoy with their parish priest Rev.
Father Eugine Valencia when he was only 9 years old until he
reached the age of 15.He has been an altar boy and spent his
time serving God for almost 6 years. He became an altar
knight from the year 2001- 2007.
In his high school degree, he studied at Bayorbor
National High School, Bayorbor, Mataasnakahoy, Batangas.
In this school, he started tom fulfill his dreams in his life and
his dreams for his family. He has also learned a lot of things
from this school. He learned how to be patient in whatever he
do, how to gain friends and how to be a good role model to
others especially to those who are younger than him. In this
school, he had also favorite teachers like Mrs. Romana
Glenda S. Lagmay, a Physics teacher, she is Rovin’s adviser
when he was in first year high school, Ms. Arlene T. Garcia, a
Mathematics teacher, his adviser when he was in second year,
Mrs. Helen D. Robles, a MAPEH teacher, his adviser when he
was in third year and lastly, Mrs. Corazon D. Bariuan, his
adviser of Rovin when he was in fourth year. He learned to
much from Mrs. Bariuan because she taught him how to be
strong and how to overcome his weaknesses and hurdles in
In here, he began to be determined, optimistic and
patient enough to face the challenges and trials in his life.
Here, he met his very very close friends like Christian, Von,
Ariel, Aivin, Deo, Benrick, Dennis, Herman, Vincent, Lyuma,
Reden, Anthony, Nelson, Darwin, and Doy whom he
considered as his Boddie. He has been very close also to Mr.
Oliver Gueverra, a biology teacher and Mr. Greg Mueco, a
computer and TLE teacher who are both teachers in his
school. They treated him as their younger brother that’s why
in return; he also treated them as his older too.
He became very eager to finish his studies despite of the
challenges in his life, although his father has no permanent
and stable job and his mother had resigned in the company
that she is working. Another reason why he became very
eager to finish his schooling is his older brother. His brother
became a father unexpectedly, his brother had a family at an
early age without any savings yet and money in his pocket.
Because of this, he saw the sadness in his brother’s face and
the he felt pity for his mother and father’s face. And at that
time, he said to himself that he would not what his brother
did. And he will study hard, he will finish his schooling no
matter what happens and his family will be his first priority.
Rovin became the President of the Supreme Student
Government (SSG) or Student Body of their school. Through
this, being a president, he knew the real meaning of
“responsibility” and being a leader. He also learned that in an
organization, all of its members must work in group, not only
one. ”Two heads are better than one”, they said. In here, he
experienced to be scolded and to be pushed down by others.
But he didn’t allow those things to happen to him; instead, he
kept looking forward to the brighter side of life. He became
an optimistic person. He tried not to look at the negative side
of life. His friends, his teachers, and of course, his parents
and their sacrifices for him and for his sister brother used to
be his inspiration. And he finished and graduated as an
achiever only but for him, one thing worthless is the precious
memories and friendships that he had gain from this school.
But for him, one thing worthless is the precious memories and
friendships that he had gained. And after he graduated from
high school, their family had returned to Santa Maria, Laguna
which is his mother’s hometown.
And for him, another chapter of his life will be faced. He
applied as a scholar of their Municipal Mayor, Mayor Josie
Cuento. He had enrolled at Laguna State Polytechnic
University Siniloan Campus, Siniloan, and Laguna.
And as of now, he is studying at Laguna State
Polytechnic University, first year student taking up Bachelor
of Secondary Education. Here, he had met new classmates
and new friends like Ferdinand Abe, Cecile Acupan, Marwin
Asi, Lorenz Arpon, Nickson Valderame, Jerome Salay and so
much more. Here, he experience to be an independent
person. It is because he is renting a house together with his
cousins near their school. He experiences the life far away
from his parents. For him, it is not easy to be separated from
his own parents although he returns to their home weekly.
