Someone said, “Life is about taking risks, there will be no change if you do not take any risk.” That is why I risk leaving the comfort zone of my rural hometown, ventured alone with very little money, to the big City to further my education...
I knew I have to sail away from my safe harbor when I started college.
Thank You! These words defined how I feel as I am writing this now; though I know that my “thank you” is not enough to express how grateful I am, to be a scholar of Simplicio Gamboa Sr. Foundation.
Graduation is the result of one’s determination and perseverance. I made it to the finish line of my college journey after all the stressful days and sleepless nights of beating deadlines. I finally reached this milestone after four years of hard work!
“Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain but you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.”
First and foremost I have to thank God for so many things. I want to thank Him for being patient with me when I knew I was not committed to him the way I was supposed to. I want to thank God for the trials and problems I faced throughout college, because they helped me to put him first. Without God I know I would not have made it through college.
