A Touch Of Life: Real life story of the author during the darkest times of WWII in the Philippines 2nd Edition by Frank A. De La Rosa
Born in Panganiban, Catanduanes, Philippines, in one of the more than 7,000 islands of the Philippines just four years before the outbreak of WW II in 1941. My schooling was delayed because of the war. I started school in 1946 at the age of 9.
I finished both my elementary & secondary education in my hometown of Panganiban. I graduated with honors in the elementary, and as a Valedictorian in High School, in 1958.
Using my diploma as a passport to college, and by being a Valedictorian, I was granted full scholarship at the Araneta University in Rizal, Philippines. After five years on a regular program. I graduated with a degree in BS in Agricultural Engineering with flying colors, in 1963.
My academic pursuit didn’t stop here. After my college graduation, I applied to the Graduate School at the University of California at the College of Agricultural Engineering, where I was offered a job as a Graduate Research Assistant, in 1965. While in San Francisco, I attended the Heald Institute of Technology, where I was conferred another degree in Mechanical Engineering, in 1967.
Then I found a job in the Northeastern seaboard of the United States. I got married and I had a family of my own. My colorful life then went on. I have four children, two boys & two girls. Wow! As of today, I have eight grandchildren, five girls & three boys. Now, I have time to write my books. Currently, I have written five books. I’m having them republished to bring the price down. I wanted them to be affordable to all my readers and friends, all over the world. Have a copy or copies of my book as a keepsake from me. Thank you all very much. Happy reading to ONE & All!
