- This story of a former motorcycle driver from ABS-CBN News has deeply touched the hearts of netizens, as well as ours here at KAMI.com.ph
- It has always been Joyce Dublin's wish to go to college and get a degree
- But he had to set aside his dreams to help his family
Dublin needed to stop schooling because of financial constraints.
His loving mother sells bread to provide for them but the income is not enough.
Nevertheless, the 30-year-old Filipino never loses hope.
He decided to work in a supermarket as a stockroom checker.
After five years, Dublin went back to his hometown and became a habal-habal driver.
During that time, he met a passenger who got inspired by his academic performance where he graduated class valedictorian in high school.
Moved and motivated, the passenger offered to pay for Dublin's education.
The hardworking motorcycle driver got enrolled at the Cebu Technological University-Daanbantayan Campus and was granted a scholarship from the institution.
This month, he will receive his diploma on Bachelor of Secondary Education, Major in Mathematics and will graduate with the second highest honors.
Congratulations, Joyce Dublin!
