Teacher Renniel proudly shared his journey on his Facebook post on December 18, 2022. He said that he was in the Top 3 out of 139,534 examinees.

Admitting in his post, he graduated in 2019, but he chose to take the exam in 2022.

“2019 ako nagtapos ng kolehiyo. Marami ang nagtataka kung bakit hindi ako nagti-take ng exam. Pero isa lang ang alam ko, hindi ako prepared financially at emotionally. I waited for the PERFECT TIMING,” he said.

“At dumating ang panahon kung kailan pakiramdam ko naka-align sakin ang mga tala. Parang lahat nang nangyayari ay umaayon at handang ibigay sakin ang pagkakataon na mag-take na ng exam at magTOP. (ramdam ko to bago pa ako magfile)😍”

He mentioned that he had to make sacrifices by leaving his job and deactivating his social media accounts to focus on his self-review.

“Hindi rin ito swerte na ginusto kong pumasa at by chance nag-TOP 3 ako. Nagpagod ako, dinisiplina ko ang sarili ko, at nag-commit ako na pang Topnotcher ang efforts. Why not? Sabi ko sarili ko, either makapasa o hindi, I'll make sure na wala akong guilt na mararamdaman because I have done my part,” aniya.

He also explained what motivated him to aspire not just to pass but to secure a top spot. First and foremost, he cited "pressure." He wanted to prove to those who doubted his capabilities that he could overcome challenges.

Second, "giving back." He expressed his desire to bring honor not only to himself but also to his alma mater, the Santa Cruz Institute-Marinduque, where he completed his Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Filipino program.

Third, "opportunities." He hoped that this achievement would open doors and windows to numerous opportunities for him.

The hardships they were going through served as motivation for him. He wanted to demonstrate that he could achieve something and give back to the family that provided unwavering support despite the challenges they faced.

“Umabot na ako sa puntong pakiramdam ko stagnant na ang lahat. Parang gumigising ka na lang para matulog lang ulit. Parang wala ng sense. Parang eto na ako? Wala pa akong napapatunayan. Wala pa rin akong nararating. Wala pa rin akong naitutulong upang mabago ang takbo ng buhay namin.”

“Kaya sabi ko, etong pag-take ko ng exam I'll make sure na maibabalik nito yung Renniel nung time na nasa college pa siya. Yung punong puno ng goals, laban na laban, laging may dahilan ang paggising at bawat araw kailangan produktibo. At higit sa lahat, yung naniniwala siya na kaya niya, kaya't ngayon nagawa ko (God is good)🙏🙏🙏,” he said.

The teacher also expressed gratitude to the people who helped him achieve his dreams and success.

Based on Renniel's Facebook profile, he is currently teaching at Marinduque Midwest School in the senior high school department.

Congratulations, Teacher Renniel!
