Daughter expresses pride in mom who graduated from senior high school

MANILA, Philippines – Proving that it is not too late to achieve your dreams, no matter your age, a mom has gone viral for recently graduating senior high school. Her proud daughter shares her photos as she expresses pride that her mother was able to achieve this milestone in her life.

Ryzi Agualada proudly shared photos of her mother, Elena Dacuran Agualada of Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Despite already being 44 years old, Nanay Elena did not quit on her dreams. She decided that it was not too late for her to try and reach for her dreams, so she could provide a better life for her family.

For Nanay Elena, graduating from college would be the ultimate dream.

As she graduates from senior high school, Nanay Elena is one step closer to her goals. She happily poses for a photo with her graduation picture, feeling proud that she was able to reach this far. Although schools in the Philippines and many parts of the world had canceled their graduation rites to combat COVID-19, Nanay Elena feels content that she’s able to complete the level.

Proud daughter Ryzi shares her mother’s photos, loving how her mother is able to rise up to the challenge so she could reach for her dream of becoming a teacher. At 44, Nanay Elena would certainly be much older than her classmates in college, but she does not mind. What’s important is that she can complete her studies.

She plans to enroll at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP), Santa Rosa Campus, in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, with a course in Education. If she is able to graduate on time, Nanay Elena would be 48 by the time she earns her degree.

Someone suggested that Nanay Elena should just take the Expanded Tertiary Education Equivalency and Accreditation Program (ETEEAP) because it is a shorter program. It is also offered by PUP; however, Education courses are not included. Since Nanay Elena wants to be a teacher, the program won’t be applicable for her, but it would certainly be a good option for those who wish to earn a degree.
