Hemiplegic student graduates cum laude, passes LET

MANILA, Philippines – In life, there are many things that could bring us down and hinder our way to reaching our dreams. For many, this comes in the form of financial problems that force them to quit school, while others have to deal with physical challenges such as having a disability that makes their day-to-day lives difficult.

But what’s inspiring about these people is that they try to find a way to solve their problems and overcome the challenges to finally reach their goals.

Suffering from mild cerebral palsy, 21-year-old Angelo Gabriel S. Jingco changes the way we see people with disability after he graduated from college and later passed the professional licensure exams.

Born with hemipligia which means he has mild paralysis, the young man managed to push himself to try his best in school. Just like many students around him, he also had dreams – and his dream was to become a teacher.

The young man was able to overcome his disability and was able to graduate from Guagua National Colleges in Guagua, Pampanga, with flying colors! He finished Cum Laude with a degree in Bachelor in Elementary Education, major in General Education.

It was impressive that he was able to graduate with honors even as he faced the challenges of his disability.

After his graduation, Angelo Gabriel was determined to become a full-fledged teacher. He studied for the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) which he took last March 24, 2019.

His mother, Maria Teresa Jingco would proudly share on The Summit Express that her son is among the passers of that test, making him a licensed professional teacher.

“Sana po ay magsilbing ehemplo ang aking anak sa mga kabataan natin ngayon at makita nilang hindi sagabal ang pagkakaroon ng disability upang matupad ang pangarap,” Mommy Maria Teresa wrote.

Congratulations, Angelo Gabriel!
