Sean James Borja: I’m openly homosexual
Sean James Borja, the 2018 Bar examinations topnotcher, graduated from the Ateneo de Manila University law school in 2018 as the class valedictorian.
He’s openly gay.
In his graduation speech, Borja shared his experience as an LGBT community member.
“This will come as no surprise to many of you: I am an openly homosexual law school student. When I got to law school, I promised myself that I would push it to the very limit. I promised that if there was ever a path where I could become my best version, I would take that path and see how far someone like me could possibly go,” he said.
After his graduation, Borja worked at Gulapa Law as an underbar associate of the firm.
