    His dad doesn’t have a job. Because money was tight, they told him it was probably best that he quit school. But Ceff did not agree with that suggestion. For him, his education matters most. Thus, he thought of ways to support himself in college. Though he was not able to enroll in college immediately after graduating from high school, Ceff found a job at the school canteen.

    The following year, he decided to juggle his studies with his job at the school canteen. As a self-supporting student, he managed to enroll in college to take up the course of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture at Bulacan Agricultural State College (BASC) in San Ildefonso, Bulacan.
