Albay Board Member Melissa Abadeza takes her oath before her former law prof


Albay Board Member Melissa Abadeza took her oath before Legazpi Regional Trial Court Executive Judge Elmer Lanuzo, who was also her professor in law school.

In a Facebook post, Abadeza said she chose Lanuzo because he was the first person who saw her potential to become a lawyer.

This was when she was interviewed for her entry to law school.

After the interview, she knew she could make it in the legal profession, she said.

And now she’s writing laws for the province.

She has come so far!
