Some students take their education for granted. Their parents may provide everything for them, but they don't mind their sacrifices at all.
One student however, showed how much he values education that despite his condition, he still manages to go to school.
He is Ruel Jhon Pungol. He is a disabled Grade 9 student from Lamba National High School as per PhilNews' report.
Ruel has deformed arms, which makes it hard for him to grasp things, and equally difficult to ride a bicycle.
But with one good leg, he is able to ride his rusty bicycle to school every day.
Those who see him on the road are amazed at his determination that despite the danger, he pushes himself to the limits just to receive education.
Rey Mond Simpal, the one who posted his video captioned it with:
"Nakaka pigil hininga ang batang ito. Sya si, Ruel Jhon M. Pungol, grade 9 student ng Lamba National High School, (Banga Annex). Kabilang paa lng po yung nag papadyak ng pedal ng bisekleta. Subra mo akong napahanga pamangkin, ingat lagi sa pag punta ng school araw-araw. lease like and share para sumikat at matulungan ang batang ito."
Many netizens praised the young boy for his resilience and strength of heart.
Here are some of the comments of netizens:
Indeed, Ruel is proof that one's disability is not a hindrance to achieving one's dreams.
If Ruel can do it, then those who have complete extremities have no reason not to finish their education.
