“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
- Corrie ten Boom
Graduations are significant to each of us for it is where hats will be off and will be tossed in the air. It is also the time that black gowns would be the “outfit of the day” for the students.
Sheann Rodriguez graduated last May 3, 2017 at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines from the degree BS Business Administration Major in Human Development Management. Her education and journey shaped her with a mind full of gratitude and gladness.
Currently, Sheann is applying for a job where she can practice camaraderie and stewardship. She hopes to be part of a human resource department in a company where she can encourage and motivate her workmates. Entering the corporate world makes her nervous and excited at the same time.
School was never an easy way out. Nevertheless, it is where spirit and passion was founded and tested.
Sheann’s family was supported through the work of his father as a tricycle driver. With only an enough amount to spare and use, it was not a smooth flow for them for all three children goes to school. Life is not a tranquil ride then; her father got involved in a road accident, causing him to leave his job for a year. This is also the sole reason why Sheann never hoped of entering college, for she knew that she can’t afford chasing her dreams.
The things she thank for, the way she will give back
Sheann is grateful for she realized that what has happened is not the “ending” of the Lord’s plan for her. Through several individual who serves as an instrument and blessing for her, she got a scholarship from ANCOP. It was the revival of her right to education, her freedom to hope and to dream. She became an AGW scholar for four years.
Now that she is a degree holder, she aims to provide a better life for her family. She also aims to be an HR manager someday where she can lead and help other employees to be better at work. Lastly, she puts her faith that she can also be a sponsor of a child to school through the ANCOP program.

MC LYRUSS JAY LAT:
NEVER GIVING UP ON DREAMS
Witnessing the poor state of his family and seeing most of his relatives ending their education in High School, Lyruss thought he couldn’t pursue his studies up to college level. He thought that his parents couldn’t afford sending him to college as his father’s salary was already insufficient for their daily needs, with his mother as a housewife and his sister working as a helper on their neighbor to support her own studies.
EXTENDING THE LADDER FOR THE FUTURE
Enrollment days are commonly a segment of patience and waiting. Students will normally wait for their turn, wait for their schedules or wait until the whole barkada has finished the process. It is a mark that you are about to enter either a new school or a new academic year and semester.
