A post about a fisherman's daughter who ranked 2nd in the LET exams went viral in 2015. A tarpaulin was hanged in their shabby home. She recently went viral again after posting the new house she built for her family.
Iah Seraspi has become an inspiration to many after she shared the story of how she was able to overcome the challenges in her life, eventually being able to reach for her dreams and pass the board exams.
According to her she shared her story not to get sympathy or to get her family humiliated. She just wanted to inspire and to make others realize and give importance to the good life they have.
Iah passed the University of the Philippines (UP) entrance exams but she realized that her poor family could never afford to send her there. She opted to enroll in a university in her hometown.
With the help of the Esquejos family of Looc who learned that she’s the great granddaughter of their family’s long-time tenant, Iah was able to go to college. She did not fail her benefactors as she graduated Cùm Laude from Bachelor of Secondary Education (BSED) major in Biological Science.
She was determined to pass the exam so she concentrated on reviewing for the LET exams.
She was able to get a 90% score and ranked 2nd in the September 2015 LET. She used her prize money to buy a projector for their church.
She accepted a job offer from the Review center where she reviewed.
The house she built for her family sits at the very spot of their old nipa hut.
She recounted the trials she experienced while she was still studying.
Nothing feels more fulfilling than the thought that while I am helping others to achieve their dreams, I am also achieving my personal dreams.”
