-The story of this student went viral on the internet. Why?
-This kid graduated with 20php in his pocket everyday
-It's his proof that money is not a hindrance to follow your dreams
Robin Lee Metiam is just like any other student who wants to graduate and change the wind of their lives. He graduated with only 20 pesos in his pocket everyday to survive college and he slayed it!
Robin, the fresh graduate of Tarlac State University, shared his story of how he finished college.
He was just in first year college when his parents lost their jobs. They had to tighten the budget in order to live and save the remaining savings his parents have.
“Hirap kami financially, kaya iyong P50 a day na baon ko, sabi ng tatay ko, P20 a day lang kaya niya ibigay sa akin,” he said.
The situation did not bring him down. He studied harder until he got a scholarship from DOST making his tuition fee free and an allotted allowance of P5,000 every month.
But, his mother also shared that even though he has an allowance from his scholarship, he chose to give it to them to help the family and kept the 20 pesos baon everyday instead.
Robin has now graduated from college with Electrical Engineering as his course.
