For the past five years, I’ve experienced many ups and downs in my family, friends, studies and finances. It came to a point when I don’t know what else to do but give up. But as what they always say, God will not give you problems you can’t overcome. I am lucky to have supportive family and friends who serve as my strength when I feel weak.
I would like to tell you that USTEAA-USA is one of the reasons why I made it this far. I would like to mention Engr. Angelina Hunter for being more than a sponsor to me. She became a source of inspiration, not only to me but also to my friends whom she met when she visited the Philippines last year. Thank you.
April 3, 2014 marked one of the best days of my life. I might not have a complete family that day, I am still happy that I have some of my relatives, who patiently waited until the commencement exercise ended, to celebrate with. I am very proud that out of 1200+ graduates I am one of those who will graduate with honors. This award is a proof of never giving up despite the hardships and sacrifices. Attached in this letter are some of my pictures taken during the ceremony.
Right now, I am taking a short break before I start my review for the board exam. I enrolled in a review center in Morayta and the classes will start on June. I will be looking for a place to stay during my review maybe on May.
I want to thank you for everything that you have given me. For the opportunity, and most importantly for the trust and for believing that I can do it. I said in my first letter then that I have to prove myself worthy as your scholar, I hope I was able to fulfill it and was able to make you all proud.
Thank you and God bless!
