In their story shared with ABS-CBN News' "Bayan Mo I-Patrol Mo," they recounted that due to their difficult life circumstances in the past, her mother couldn't even afford to buy a pencil when she was young. This is why sharpening the pencils for the exam was a significant moment for them. According to superstition, these pencils are believed to bring good luck if sharpened by a board passer.

Mercedita, Klarence's mother, expressed that while Klarence believes the pencils are her lucky charm for the exam, she believes her daughter's success is due to her hard work and dedication, and that her daughter truly deserves it.

In an interview with the Philippine Star, Klarence mentioned that she chose her mother to sharpen the pencils as a tribute to her mother's sacrifices for her.

“Sino ba ‘yong laging nagtatasa ng pencil ko or ‘yong the first person who ever sharpened my pencil? Naisip ko na as a tribute to my mom, I asked her to sharpen my pencil,” the board passer said.

In addition to the video of the pencil sharpening, another video went viral showing Klarence and Mercedita with her father as they checked the exam results. Emotions overflowed when they found out that Klarence had passed.

Speaking of the lucky charm associated with the sharpening of pencils before taking the exam, ‘BINI’ member Maloi Ricalde went viral in April as she took fan service to another level when she sharpened her fan's pencil. It was revealed that the pencil belonged to a test-taker who is scheduled to have her board exam in July.
