Congratulations to the 2021 Avila College DUX, Jocelyn Satya Graha.

A well-rounded and accomplished student, Jocelyn has embraced every opportunity presented to her throughout her Avila journey and enthusiastically contributed to the Avila community and College life.

Jocelyn plans to study Medicine or Biomedicine.
