Former child star John Manalo and his longtime girlfriend Erika Rabara are trending on social media because of their graduation story.
KAMI learned that John took up AB Communication Arts, while Erika finished a degree in degree in BS Medical Technology and graduated cumlaude.
According to ABS-CBN, John took to Instagram to share a lengthy post about their graduation story. He emphasized on 3 principles that helped them succeed.
"PRIORITY, SACRIFICE, and FAITH. Let’s talk about “priority” first. Nung nililigawan palang kita, alam ko na talaga kung ano ang priority mo, at yun ay ang pag-aaral mo. Ni minsan hindi sumagi sa isip ko na dapat “tayo” ang maging priority mo. Kagaya nga nang palagi kong sinasabi sayo, hindi ko babaguhin ang landas ng iyong paglalakbay kundi sasamahan kita sa pangarap na matagal mo ng gustong makamit. Pangalawa naman ay ang sakripisyo. Dugo’t pawis, puyat at pag iyak.
"Pagbabasa ng libro habang bumabiyahe, naglalakad, kumakain, at ngumingiti sa harap ng camera. Nakita ko ang lahat ng pagod at sakripisyo na nilaan mo para sayong pag-aaral. Ito ang lagi mong tatandaan nandito lang ang panyo ko para sa iyong mga luha, ang balikat ko na handang umalalay pag hindi mo na kaya, at ang bibig ko na hindi magsasawang sabihin sayo na “Kaya mo yan, love.”
"Lastly, faith. Nakaya mo ang lahat ng paghihirap dahil sentro ng relasyon natin si God. Lahat ng bagay na ginagawa mo ay inaalay mo para sa kanya. Maraming mas nakatatanda ang nagsasabi na ang relasyon ay maaaring makasira ng pagaaral ngunit salungat yun sa mga nangyari sa atin, hindi natin hinila ang bawat isa pababa, bagkos hinatak natin pataas ang bawat isa. Congratulations, Erika Cecilia Rabara, my CUMLAUDE."
