B.B.A Finance (2019)
Christian Beduya came from the Philippines in 2003 with a family purpose of finding a better life and more opportunities. The opportunity to excel and lead within the University of Houston has allowed Christian to be heavily involved with several student organizations. He co-founded, Cougar Creative Marketing Firm, which is the first student-run marketing firm in the Houston area, was a member of the Investment Banking Scholars Club, Asian Business Student Organization, participated in the Student Government Association, the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship, and is currently the Vice Chair of Marketing for the Energy Coalition, the largest student organization in the nation. His mentors play a big role in his life. One of the best pieces of advice that they have given him is to find ways to sharpen his tools mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. He’s a firm believer that there’s a difference between being busy and being productive. Learning to distinguish between the two are a student’s biggest challenge. “We must all learn to sharpen our tools every once in awhile. Meaning that we must find time to do the things we enjoy such as hobbies.” Christian is currently a Building Supervisor here at the rec and says the rec is the perfect place for him to “de-stress.” He’s able to release stress, engage in the rec community, as well as set time aside for his fitness activities.
