We all have our stories of struggle in order for us to attain great achievements in our life. May it be struggling to get by every single day, struggling with grades, or with criticisms from everyone, just name it and each of us surely has their story to tell.

Rizal Gutierrez recently graduated from Senior High School via an “online graduation” which was held by La Consolacion University Philippines last June 13, 2020.
Gutierrez recalls having had a lot of problems while studying. He has always been a boy shy because of his speech impairment. He even experienced bullying and discrimination because of his physical appearance.
But, these did not make him falter from his goals but instead, this served as his inspiration to still continue fighting every single day and be a day nearer to his dreams.
He persevered with his studies and even confessed that finishing elementary school was one of his wildest dreams back then. But now, he is only a few years away from finishing a college degree!
He even plans to take Architecture as he always had this fascination in structures.
Indeed, Gutierrez is the epitome of these three words “never give up.” We should not limit our dreams, but let our minds soar to as far as it could and condition our minds to foresee ourselves in that position.
After all, life and all the hardships it entails are all a matter of perspective.
