Johanna Paulene Campos and Enrico Miguel Aparecio
These kids never imagined that they will soon represent the country for 2018 China Primary Mathematics Olympiad, for the initial screening of qualifiers during their training they were both classified as Challengers and it was a big surprise for them that after thorough evaluation of their performances they were informed that they were transferred as qualifiers to the said competition.
Both neophytes in international competition they found the contest very difficult, yes indeed this competition was among the very hard contest yet they proved that there is no mountain high as long as you are focused and determined to achieve your goals.
