Through a lengthy Facebook post, fresh graduate Emjhei Guerrero shared how she overcame the struggles and challenges of motherhood while working her way o obtain a college degree. The inspiring story has gone viral amassing almost 4,000 shares on Facebook.

Guerrero, who got pregnant when she was in third year college, recently graduated from Sienna College of Taytay.

Despite the difficulties of studying while pregnant, Guerrero didn’t quit school. The young mom had to endure bouts of morning sickness as well as unwanted attention from other students. With the support of her family, Guerrero was able to finish her third year in college and breeze through her pregnancy.

On May 24, Guerrero gave birth to her daughter allowing her to go back to school in June. This posed another challenge for the new mom as she could possibly have a relapse. Still, Guerrero chose to fulfil her parents’ dream for her.

Through her story, Guerrero wants to encourage teen moms not to give up their dream of finishing school. The young mom stressed that a baby should serve as an inspiration and not an obstacle in reaching one’s goals.

“Teen moms, wag isipin na hadlang si baby para makuha niyo yung dream niyo instead gawin niyo silang inspirasyon. Patunayan natin sa mga tao o sa mga parents natin na kaya pa din natin makapagtapos kahit na may na may baby na,” Guerrero wrote.

(Teen moms, don’t think that your baby is an obstacle to your dream. Instead, think of them as an inspiration. Prove to people or your parents that you can finish your studies even if you have a child already.)

The proud teen mom also clarified that she is not encouraging teenagers to have babies while still in school as it’s best to finish studies before having a baby.
