Candy Rookie Isa Sarrosa Shows Us That Adventure Is A State Of Mind
School: University of Santo Tomas
Year and Course: 3rd Year, BS Pharmacy
Candy Rookie Isa Sarrosa is as well-rounded as any college student can get. "Being a part of the student council, I do my best to balance my time for both studies and extra-curricular work/activities," says Isa. "I also love dancing, working out (because it releases endorphins!), and dogs."
But one thing that stands out about this 19-year old is her adventurous and open attitude when it comes to her chosen course.
"Since I was a kid, I’ve always been really passionate about the medical field and hopefully becoming a doctor in the future," she says.
Coming from a family of doctors, Isa has been exposed to the medical field since she was young, but it's more than just aboout continuing the family legacy. "In medicine, there’s just always something new to learn and so you’re always kept on your toes because it’s always interesting and progressing."
In her year as a Candy Rookie, Isa is looking forward to new experiences. "Being someone who is quite adventurous, I’m excited to try new things and share what I know with other people. Being a Candy Rookie has already been such a huge blessing and I can’t wait to see what it has in store for me and the rest of the batch."
Isa is part of Candy Rookies 2020, a group of influential and aspirational college students handpicked to represent #GenerationCandy in the year to come.

I started college with little to no support coming from my family. I can't blame them tho, life was pretty hard for us to afford college. I had to stand up on my own just to get by. Good thing I have a boyfriend who supports me all the way. But I can't let him shoulder it all, so, I had to accept sidelines just to finance my studies. It was fortunate of me to be blessed with talented hands to do crafts. And now, I'm so proud to say that I'll be graduating next year! So, let me share with you my works that helped me all through out my college journey.
This Quarantine has been a threat to my mental health since I had a lot of time to overthink things. This is surely a depressing time but I found my inner peace by writing. I found my way back into my first love, which is writing. And there I realized that this pandemic may seem worse but it will only get worser if you let it ruin your peace. With this, I wanna share to you my sanctuary.
Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
