CEBU, Philippines - Hard work, perseverance and self-discipline paid off for Cebuano model and beauty pageant winner Nathaniel Donaire Tiu.

 A member of batch 2016 of Cebu Institute of Technology – University, Tiu was among the 211 passers of the recent Mining Engineering Licensure Examination.

 Tiu said he is excited to work in the field and learn the processes involved in the mining industries. Vowing to become one of the best mining engineers of his generation, the chinito adheres to his advocacy of protecting and preserving natural resources. He added that not all mining activities are deterrent to nature, and this is what he wants to promote.

 Tiu’s modeling and pageant stints began with Psalmstre Olive-C, when he represented CIT-U in the regional pageant and won. Later on, he represented Region VII in the Mr. Olive-C Campus Model Philippines 2013. He was crowned first runner-up to Joefel Alas of Davao, now a certified public accountant.

 Since then, the new engineer has been visible in several modeling events in and out of Cebu. In fact, he was also crowned Mr. Rotary Club DisCon 2014 during the organization’s district convention held in Davao.

 Psalmstre chief executive officer Jim Acosta said he is happy of the achievements of his former Olive-C talents. Known as a talent builder himself, Acosta promised to continue supporting other teenagers who dream of becoming successful.

Olive-C has become the training ground of some of today’s successful individuals including Ms. Supranational 2013 Mutya Datul, Cebuana Ms. Philippines –Water 2011 Muriel Orais, Star Magic talent and Hashtag member Jon Lucas, and GMA Artist Center star Hiro Peralta, among others.
