It’s graduation season again! For the past few days, we see hundreds of social media posts about students finally making it to their most awaited day – their graduation. Of course, it has already been a practice to celebrate this rare event even with just a little preparation. However, it is also a fact that not everyone can afford to do so.
Just like in the case of this father who sincerely apologized for not being able to prepare anything for the graduation of his son who graduated while being a working student.
Recently, the Facebook page “Sulit De-senyo” has shared the story of a loving father who apologized to his son for having no celebration on his graduation day.
According to PhilNews, the poor student was identified as Jay-ar Cañete Pangan worked as a service crew of Chowking Gaisano Mall Butuan, according to the social media page.
In the photos, it can be seen how the working student strived and endured the hardships just to graduate in college to help his family. The conversation between the dad and the son went:
Tatay: Anak, pasensya na wala tayong handa ngayong araw ng iyong pagtatapos.
Anak: Ayus lang po tay, mahalaga nakapagtapos ako sa kolehiyo at matutulungan na kita, hindi na kita hahayaan pang maghirap at susuklian ko lahat ng sakripisyo mo sakin..
Because of his story, many netizens expressed their admiration for Jay-ar and extended their congratulatory messages to him.
Kudos to Jay-ar! May you inspire more people with your story of proving that poverty is never a hindrance to success. We wish you a progressive professional journey ahead and be the blessing that your parents need you to be!
