“These students will determine the future of our country, and Benjamin is very appropriate to become the ambassador for academic excellence because he was a scholar prior to his showbiz stint. He has accomplishments that the younger generation can look up to,” the Network executive stated.

Benjamin, on the other hand, said he is honored to once again represent GNEA and looks forward to reaching out to exemplary Filipino students around the country.

“It is humbling to be GNEA’s ambassador. I feel like I’m still a student, I feel like I still want to seek higher education because when you see how passionate these students are, it makes you want to excel as well,” Benjamin expressed.

The 2018 GMA Network Excellence Award is in partnership with YesPinoy Foundation, Airfreight 2100, Inc. (Air21), University of the Philippines (Diliman) College of the Mass Communication Foundation, Inc., Don Bosco Technical College, and Angeles University Foundation.
