According to GMA News online, Philippine Navy Officer Maycee Angga has been proclaimed as the Best International Student during a passing-out parade at the Britannica Royal Naval College, the premier officer training institution of the British Royal Navy in Dartmouth, United Kingdom, last August 11.

Despite being the only female international student in the assemblage, Angga surpassed the other 131 naval officers from the UK, Albania, the Bahamas, Egypt, Libya, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and Ukraine.

Corroborated by the Philippine Navy and the UK Government, Angga also made history by becoming the first Filipino to attend and finish the 30-week training course which began in January 4.

This profoundly elaborate training program involved a study visit to France and a three-week ship acquaint where Angga was commissioned to HMS Bulwark, an amphibious assault ship treading the waters of UK territory.

Angga is also one of the only 10 graduates out of 20 foreign cadets who were allowed entry to BRNC this year.

Britannica Royal Naval College was established in 1863 in Dartmouth, England as the initial training ground of the British Royal Navy. Most of its students come from the Royal Navy, the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, and naval organizations from foreign and other Commonwealth Countries.
