SALUDO AKO SA TAONG TO
After exam namin kanina eto yung bumugad samin sa harap ng room namin, inaalok nya mga classmate ko bumili ng GRAHAM BALLS. Syempre! Bet ko kaya bumili ako. Pero akala ko babae nagtitinda,yun pala lalake! At take note CRIMINOLOGY STUDENT sya. 1st yr. Na amaze ako sa kanya, look ang laki ng bag nya akala ko varsity sya 😊 yun pala yun ang laman ng malaki nyang bag, sangkatutak na grahamballs. At dun ko nalaman na dahil sa pagtitinda nya nakapag tapos sya ng High School at nakapag enroll sa college. Tinanong ko sya kung sinong gumagawa ng paninda nya, sabi nya silang dalwa ng nanay nya. Nakakataba lang ng puso kase di mo akalain na isang crim student pa ang gagawa nito. Saludo ako sayo, dahil sayo mas lalo akong na inspired mag aral. Na hindi talaga hadlang ang kahirapan upang di mo makamit ang pangarap mo. Di ko nalaman pangalan nya nahihiya kase ako hahaha!

While her group was on the way out of the classroom after an exam, the said guy asked them if they wanted to buy graham balls.

Since Ms. Alpuerto loves graham balls, she opted to buy some. Interestingly, she learned that the hardworking guy was able to graduate from high school because of selling graham balls. The same source of income also enabled him to enrol in college.

Ms. Alpuerto was amazed by the guy's determination and entrepreneurial motivation, so she posted this photo on her Facebook account.
