Construction Worker Graduates as Valedictorian Earns Praises from Netizen

Published

Education is a right, they say. But in reality, education is nothing but a privilege to some people who can afford sending their kids to school despite of the constant challenges the life throws. For the less fortunate people, education is a treasure that some can only afford, that is why they either choose not to go for it anymore, or takes everything it means just to attend even a one single class so they can experience how fun it is to learn and live.

A former part time construction worker who graduated as a batch valedictorian served as an inspiration to everyone not to stop fighting for your dreams, even if you have to sacrifice a lot and work doubly, always choose to go to school. As long as you can still find a way how to.

Michael Español grew up in Gueguesangen, Mangaldan in Pangasinan. He recalled all the days that he experienced sore muscled and body pain because of his work but said that it was all worth it, especially after he discovered that he achieved a 95 average on his report card.

The student also shared that he became a supreme student government president on his school.

“Na-overwhelm ako nu’ng nalaman ko po na ako po ang top-performing sa klase namin,” He said.

His mom is a factory worker and his dad is a messenger, despite of his both parents working hard, they still could not meet their family’s expense, making it hard for them to survive.

Michael said that the 250PHP he earns from his part time works is what supports his finances at school, especially when it comes to his projects and assignments.

Nowadays, even if you are enrolled on a public school, managing to survive a school year with a passing grade would cost some money here and there, and its a real struggle for someone like Michael.

But it did not hinder him and instead, it kept him going, leading him to where he is right now.

The lad admitted that he still have a long way to go, and for everyone like him, Michael have some words.

“Meron pong mga taong hindi naniniwala sa atin. So payo ko po sa inyo, ‘wag na po natin silang intindihin at mag-focus lang tayo sa goals natin,” giit niya.

We have been going ukay- ukay on eachother’s wardrobes lately! While I just got a bunch of the comfiest sleeping shirts from my brother, Ellie discovered that a lot of my clothes (that I still love btw) are starting to fit her. She’s only 8 you guyss! Lilo on the otherhand, is wearing reusable diapers from the 90’s. They used to be mine! Glad nanay kept a bunch of my old baby clothes to pass on to my kids. Also glad-er that they are still in style! Admittedly, as eco- conscious as I have been, supporting fast fashion, to me, was always the hardest to let go of. So that little activity of ours was such a wonderful thing for us to try! Remember that it’s always better to contribute even something so little than doing nothing at all. One can be doing their best yet still not succeed in doing it completely, AND THAT’S OK.🌸
