The Philippine Science High School System commends 𝗥𝘆𝘀𝗮 𝗔𝗻𝘁𝗼𝗻𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗲 𝗔𝗻𝗴 of PSHS-Main Campus (Batch 2023) for being the recipient of Zonta International’s the Young Women in Public Affairs (YWPA) Award 2023.
Rysa Antonette Ang will receive USD 5,000.00 as an award.
YWPA recognizes young women, ages 16-19, for demonstrating leadership skills and commitment to public service and civic causes, and encourages them to continue their participation in public and political life.
Zonta International has successfully empowered women worldwide through service and advocacy for more than 100 years.
Rysa graduated with Highest Honors and received the PSHS Leadership Award.
As a student leader, Rysa was an active member of the Big Brother and Sister Circle (BBSC) and eventually became its president. BBSC allowed her to help Grade 7 students get through class projects, tutorial during exam seasons, and answering questions about life at Pisay.
She’s also a leader of Mitsa Tutoring Organization, a youth-led organization dedicated to promoting STEM-based education among elementary students in the Philippines.
For two years, Rysa as Head of Logistics and Finance served as Batch Council Secretary, organizing a research symposium and preparing for their Graduation Ball as its chair.
Along with her batchmates, they were able to raise at least $8,000 to fund their graduation projects through Neverland 2021, Pisay’s first-ever online and open-access fair that included creating an original merchandise line, visual novel, and soundtrack to accompany their fair’s Neverland-themed story.
Rysa will take up BS Health Sciences at Ateneo de Manila University where she is one of the university’s Director’s List scholars.
We are proud of you!
