Mr. Ramil M. Comendador, almost teary eyed, patiently waited for his name with other successful examinees to flash on wide screen.
Mr. Comendador explained that his family is his inspiration and because he lived a very poor life, he wanted to break the cycle of poverty and only education is the key for doing so.
The new lawyer was holding back his tears talking about his family who left in Bicol in order to focus for his work in studies. He planned on spending time with his two kids in order compensate for the moments of not being with them; and to continuously work in COMELEC to repay them and possibly help out and whatever he could.
Salute to the new lawyers. See more of this KAMI story and share the joy and pride of this outstanding Pinoy.
