Mrs. Cindy Ruth R. Villariza
Looking after 24 female dormers and serving as dormitory adviser of Azucena Cottage could be God’s way of training Mrs. Cindy Ruth R. Villariza for motherhood. She was in a seven year-relationship with her college sweetheart, Mr. John Peter C. Villariza, before finally tying the knot this year. They had a civil wedding on February 18, 2016, which was followed by a church wedding on June 18. And now, they are expecting their firstborn child, who will be due on March 2017.
“The girls were there during the wedding,” shares the mother-to-be, referring to the dormers that she considers her younger sisters. The 26-year old dorm adviser adds that the Azucena girls have been a significant part of her life, sharing milestones with her. She thanks the Lord for opportunities like this to grow, share, give, and learn.
Cindy is also a staff at the Office of the International Student Adviser, and has been serving the University for four years now, starting off at the Office of Registrar and Admissions. One of the things she looks forward to, as a Silliman employee, is the weekly devotion among the Offices of Student Services. “The devotion has been strengthening me much. It has been changing my heart for the good and I am thankful we have it,” says Cindy who testifies to the faithfulness and grace of Christ.
Back in 2012, she earned her BS Computer Science degree in Silliman. And now that she is starting a family of her own, she only prays that the child inside her womb will be guided by The Way, The Truth, and The Life.
