“La Salle was the place where I discovered my love for numbers and accounting. It’s where I found conviction and truth in numbers,” Uy said in her acceptance speech during the 8th One La Salle Night of Excellence, a bi-annual ceremony for La Salle alumni, held at De La Salle University (DLSU) Taft Campus.

She also credited DLSU for instilling in her the values of hard work and discipline that have contributed to her success. 

Uy pursued a Bachelor of Science in Accountancy at DLSU, equipping her to secure 16th place in the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Licensure Board Examination in 1989.

Uy encouraged fresh graduates to dream big, be curious, and work hard to make a difference. She urged them to pursue their interests and create opportunities to leave a positive legacy in their communities. 

She also expressed her gratitude for the partnership between Converge and DLSU since 2011, with Converge powering up 18 sites on DLSU campuses nationwide.
