MANILA – An 11-year-old Filipino boy was recently featured in one of the two leading newspapers in Switzerland for excelling in his Grade 4 class.
The interview of Robert Ramone Tesorero, son of the Philippine Embassy’s Attache Harley Tesorero, was published on June 10 by Berner Zeitung.
The paper’s Lucia Probst interviewed Tesorero’s teacher who described him as a gifted child.
In the article, the boy was said to be interested in Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity and wants to be a physicist.
The boy and his family arrived in Switzerland almost three months ago.
The newspaper’s article was part of a series that focuses on gifted foreign children in Switzerland and why they excel compared to the locals.
Philippine Ambassador to Switzerland Leslie Baja expressed his pride that a Filipino child was featured in the newspaper.
“This only bolsters the fact that the Filipino, adult and child alike, can excel in any environment and circumstance he finds himself in,” said Ambassador Baja.
