Seth Grace Banaga
Role: Head Mentor
Course: Computer Science and Business
My name is Seth Grace Banaga and I am a Computer Science and Business student. I was born in Manila, Philippines and moved to Ireland when I was 7 and I have been living here ever since. I enjoy travelling to different countries and seeing what the world has to offer and learning about the different cultures, traditions and delicacies each country is known for. I also love taking part in extra-curricular activities such as basketball, badminton and especially dance, which I play an active role in college. I believe that being actively involved in clubs and societies takes the stress away and makes college life worthwhile. I wish to inspire and encourage students to continue the activities they love doing despite the heavy workload and deadlines in college. I remember myself as a Junior Fresh who was struggling to balance my academics and my passion for dance. I remember thinking of dropping out of the dance intervarsity team to give more time to excel in my academics. I was advised to quit dancing because it was a distraction. After having a chat with my s2s mentor, I made a decision to not give up on dancing. That encouraging chat with my mentor changed my college life and I couldn't have been happier with my decision. Just like my s2s mentor in 1st year, I want to return the favour and be there for students who are struggling to balance their college life and their active social lives. And I want students to know that they are not alone and they can always go to me or anyone in college if they need help or if they just want someone to talk to. I'll be here!
