Education is the key to success, most people would say. Some of them would argue that a person who is able to finish his education is a wealthy person although he lives under the bridge. For most people, education would eventually take them to the place where they never imagines before.
That’s why some people who cannot afford to study are doing their best to finish their education no matter what it takes. Some would take a job while studying just like what Agustine Salway from General Santos City did. He worked very hard day and night just to provide himself the education that his parents are unable to provide. And after 6 years, he did not expect sparking inspiration for many people.
Agustine’s father cannot provide his needs because of his other 11 children. But Agustine strived hard and did his very best to fulfill what his father cannot do for him.
“Kung nagawa ko, Alam ko magagawa niyo rin. Financial? That is not a big deal to reach your dream. Ang pamilya namin ang pinaka mahirap, nanggaling kc kami sa angkang B’LAAN, (native people). Walang wala po talaga kami, ignorance was with us before. Parents ko, magsasaka, ang situation ng pamilya ko ang ginawa kung salamin para magpursige. Maging matatag ka lang? Magagawa mo lahat ng gusto mo. Mga kaibigan, lagi nating tatandaan, ikaw lamang ang makakatulong sa iyong sarili.. ang kawalan ang gagawin mong motivation to pursue, be Faithful, “galaw tao, tutulungan kita” natatandaan niyo ba yan kung kanino words nanggaling yan? Wag matakot, kasama natin siya. Kung kinakailangan maligo sa putik, gawin natin basta Alam natin makakatulong ito sa atin.. ginawa ko ito para lahat tau susulong, walang iwanan. Life is what we make it,
