WHO IS JOHN GABRIEL PELIAS
UP Math Summa 2011
Right now, he is the talk of the academe, this 19 year old iskolar ng bayan or scholar of the nation. He received the highest possible grade in all subjects, which is a 1.0 , except for 3 subjects wherein he was given the second highest possible grade, which is a 1.25.
What is so amazing about that is he surpassed a record that was made 65 years ago.
John Gabriel commutes to the university and he belongs to the marginalized sector of Philippine society.
John Gabriel Pelias, a BS Mathematics student was set to deliver the valedictory speech in front of his co-graduates on Sunday.
As stated in his Facebook biography, he strongly believed on Bertrand Russell’s quote saying that, “Mathematics may be defined as the subject where we never know what we are talking about, nor whether what we are saying is true.”
He is a fan of Beyonce and Chopins music, loves to write stories and read books. Gabriel likes anime series like Shakugan, Negima, Spongebob and the like which is very evident in his profile picture.
Perhaps, one of the reasons why Pelias obtained this status was, “he is single”. (author’s opinion)
