Dana, 21, is a daughter of a domestic helper. She grew up struggling financially, but it didn't stop her from achieving her dreams.
KAMI learned the inspiring story from GMA News Online.
Dana Faye Fallurin Fabiala is someone who is blessed with beauty and brains.
She's a Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEEd) graduate in Romblon State University (RSU) succeeding the title Magna Cumlaude this year.
Her mom, Nina Fabiala, is definitely utmost proud of her.
"Nag-aabang po ako ng balita nang biglang tumawag sa akin ang isa sa mga taga-RSU at sinabi nga na nag-Top 2 ako sa exam. Nabigla po ako kasi wala ako nababasa sa newsfeed (Facebook) ko,"
"Wala na po silang nasabi, nag-iyakan na po sila bigla [ng sabihin ko],"
"Nakikitra lang po kami sa aking tito na nagtatrabaho sa munisipyo. May maliit na bahay naman po kami kaso nasa Barangay San Agustin [bundok] pa po siya,"
Dana never expected that she would be ranked as Top 2. On the other hand, she didn't even had the confidence in passing the examination.
In the end, she deserves being the Top 2 for all the hard work!
KAMI salutes Dana and wishes her a successful future!
