The Never Ending Story

In the beginning…

I have set my mind to acquire La Sallian education. Back then, it didn’t matter if my parents couldn’t afford to give me one. All that matter was that I was determined to work for it and they will support me. Fortunately, I didn’t have to work, Mr. Lingao introduces me to the kind of scholarship FSLE offers. Then I got “in”.

Afterwards, he came…

I thought I wouldn’t be able to meet my benefactors. Stranger as we are to each other, we had the chance to talk during the Christmas Party in 2001. Our conversation was very short, nevertheless, it made me realize how generous he was and how privileged I am to have him. And true to his words, my benefactor has supported me to achieve my dreams.

Then semester ended…

Thought of my obligation occupied my mind. Each semestral break reminded me of my commitment I have to the foundation. I feared that I wouldn’t be able to fulfill my dreams no matter what it takes.

Then, another beginning…

Graduation is near. I have not reached the point that I would like to be in. I still need to travel a long way. It would not be easy, I guess. But looking Bck to the girl I was before; I think I’m more than ready now to attain my dreams. My Graduation is not the end, rather the beginning of a better future to look forward to.

I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now if it were not because of the people behind the foundation.

To Sir Lingao, Ms. Dimaano and Bro. Rafe, I express my deepest appreciation for helping me attain La Sallian values and spirits.

My deepest gratitude to Mr. Jun Manas and his family. I pray that God will always bless your family with good work, life and health always.

Also, thanks to my family who continue to support me all through my difficulties. And most of all, to Almighty God, to whom I owe my talent and my life.
