Chalk Campus Crush: UST's Chinito Cutie Patrick Yu

Chalk Campus Crush: UST's Chinito Cutie Patrick Yu


By Jan Bryan Sanvictores


Patrick Shaun Yu, 20
University of Santo Tomas

Year and Course 3rd year, Human Resource Development Management
Birthday April 16, 1995
Zodiac Sign Aries
Hobbies "I usually hang out in malls!"
Favorite Subject "Math—because I’m Chinese, so we’re good at Math! Ha ha!"
Favorite Campus Hangout "Asturias St., ang sarap mag-chill du’n, eh."
Dream Job "To be a senior vice president for human resources in a multinational company!"

His boy-next-door chinito looks easily make him a familiar hottie. That’s because he’s a part-time model who has appeared in numerous cable TV commercials and magazine features (including Chalk!) and has walked down runways. On campus, he’s a pageant title-holder, too, having won UST Mr. Human Resource and Mr. Commerce. Despite wanting to be a doctor at first, Patrick says, “Modeling came to me as a surprise, but I consider it to be by far one of my biggest achievements!” It’s no surprise that his career as a model has already influenced his fashion sensibilities. He actually considers himself quite stylish—and he’s always on the lookout for two of his favorite things: Watches and Nikes (Roshe Run, Janoski, Air Max, you name it, he’s got it!). During his free time, Patrick goes boxing at the gym or plays basketball and volleyball with his friends. Patrick is pretty much everyone’s dream boy, but his dream girl is defiitely someone who’s “God-fearing and self-respecting, someone who honors her parents, and is maalaga.” Yes, he’s a momma’s boy, too! Aww!


On looking good
“Eat your veggies, sleep early, and take care of your skin.”

On loving hard
“’Wag kayo masyadong umasa or mag-assume in relationships. Always put yourself first!”

On living young
“Know what makes you feel young. Age doesn’t matter!”
