Student chooses a goat as graduation gift instead of gadgets

These days, it can’t be denied that kids spend more time in front of computers, tablets, cellphones and other gadgets instead of spending it with friends or family members. Plus, kids often ask for gadgets as a gift for special occasions. Well, this kid begs to differ with the majority as he asked for a goat as a graduation gift instead of expensive gadgets!

In an article of Buzzooks, The kid’s big brother named Alvin Gaoiran Robiniol shared how he was surprised when his younger brother, Alwytz Robiniol Gaoiran, asked for a goat; thus, he happily granted the boy’s wish and got him a pregnant goat so he would have more animals to care for soon. Alvin added on his Facebook post that he is proud of his brother and is looking forward for his achievements in the future!

Reports also claim that Alwytz loved taking care of animals but his father, Ronnie, who is a farmer at their hometown in Buyon village, Bacarra, Ilocos Norte, could not afford to buy farm animals. His mother, Brigida, works as a domestic helper in Kuwait, but her salary is barely enough to make ends meet for Alwytz and his seven siblings.

Alwytz enjoys taking care of the family pets but had always wanted to have his own goats. He asked their OFW mom last Christmas for a goat, but their money just wasn’t enough to get him one.

So, on his graduation day, big brother Alvin finally fulfilled his dream – and the big smile on his face was proof enough that this was truly the graduation gift he wanted.

Congratulations, Alwytz! May you continue to be humble as you slowly achieve your dreams and aspirations in life. Remember that humility is a virtue that will stay with you forever.
