Vice President/Co-Founder

Jayco Belle Punay

She is the Vice President of the Mars Society Philippines. She studies Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering and is currently in her freshman year, and she took this course because of her huge interest in computers and cutting-edge technology. After that, she would still have to acquire her pilot licenses and pursue her Master’s degree (still in the field of engineering) since higher education is more desirable for it gives you additional and extensive experience, and finally, she aspires to be an astronaut (Lakanaut).
