Inspiring student walks kilometers to go to school; graduates cum laude

Students struggle not only in academics but also in the unfortunate situations surrounding their lives. Not everyone has the privilege to have a school bus waiting for them or any other transportation available to go to school. Unlike others, students in the provinces literally walk a bumpy road towards their education. Despite this, one student proved that this would never be a hindrance to successfully reach your dreams.

Netizen Jovin Pagalan Esclamado from Samal, Davao shared his inspiring story as a student on his Facebook post last December 3. According to him, he traveled five kilometers every day just to go to his school, University Of Mindanao Peñaplata College. Getting calluses was the least in his worries, even the rough road and bad weather couldn’t stop him from learning.
