Since he began his career, his academic index was 2.38, demonstrating that age was not an impediment to having a high academic performance. "What I have done is like an encouragement to young people", said the graduate, taking stock of everything learned during his four years of study… “being aware that age is only a number since the important thing is to maintain the desire to develop in an environment that provides satisfactory moments,” he said. The now-graduate began his professional career empirically and has a radio space called Habla con la Comunidad, broadcast from La Primerísima, at 1470 AM. Rodríguez said that he saw in journalism a "very emblematic and self-sacrificing" professional branch. In the radio space, it delves into educational, and cultural issues. In addition, Rodríguez also has professional experience as a teacher. He feels that sharing information and having the ability to teach has been a source of personal and professional satisfaction. Danilo Rodríguez was one of the 141 graduates of the Faculty of Social Communication who participated in the graduation ceremony of the 2022-2023 class. https://www.newsroompanama.com/news/83-year-old-earns-honors-degree-at-university-of-panama Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
