I am currently in my brother's room using his computer since my netbook's keyboard is not in its best function. I felt an urgency to speak for what I'm feeling right now. Thing is, I am very grateful for the chance to speak before the graduates of the schools where I spent my elementary and secondary years.
I once told myself to go back to these schools because it's where I started honing myself to become who I am today. But I only thought of going back in a reunion or something else. Not as a guest speaker.
Nevertheless, I am truly grateful for life's way of bringing me back to these schools, these very dear schools: Ma. Cristina Elementary School and Dapitan City National High School. It's where I first spent my tender years of education and learned the true essence of struggle. The schools where I also learned many things about myself and had second parents. Upon arriving on their graduation day few weeks ago, I felt at home.
Of course, being given the chance, I placed my best foot forward in transpiring the words of acumen that would inspire the graduates to pursue their education. I do hope, that with the humble experiences and meaningful struggles and lessons I narrated, I have inspired them.

Some of my dear high school teachers. I wonder why they're not getting any older..!!
