    Despite it all, Joelinda just feels lucky to still be able to attend her virtual graduation day. She shared photos of herself while lying on a hospital bed with the messages saying:

    "Nakaladkad pero mapalad"
    "LPT in the making"
    "Late but worth the wait"
    "Katas ng OFW"
    "PSULANG malakas"


    She also shared a Bible verse about holding on to the Lord for strength. Joelinda wrote, "The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoices; and with my song will I praise him. -Psalm 28:7.
