    Bryan said, "Grabe din kasi struggle noon nina Mama tsaka Papa sa pagpapaaral po sa amin ni Kuya. Nagkanda-bagsak bagsak pa ako at napaulit sa thesis."

    The 25-year-old graduate was referring to his older brother, Steven, who is now an inspector at the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP).

    According to the dutiful son, he saw how his parents strived hard to make ends meet. Bryan said, "Kita rin po kasi namin yung struggle ng parents namin para makahanap ng pang araw-araw. Tsaka di lang po sila, natulungan rin po kami ng relatives namin dito. Nahihiraman pera pampamasahe, or panggastos sa school."

    Landing top 6 in the licensure exam was something Bryan described as "unexpected." He already told his parents that he wasn't confident because the exam was tough. But now with his success, no one could be prouder than Bryan's parents.

    He said, "Proud na proud po sina Papa. Sabi ko po kasi sa kanila na medyo di ko sure kung pasado kasi mahirap yung exam. So, ayun. Masaya po sila."

    Bryan's story truly shows us that the road to achieving our goals may be long and bumpy but we shouldn't give up and just keep on moving.

    Congratulations, Engr. Bryan!
