Education: If There’s A Will, There Are Ways

24 Mar

If there are persons I’d like to honor in these days in the field of education, I would give the laurels to Desilyn Banking of Baguio City.

She is, first and foremost, a wife and a mother.

She first applied as a house help until she became a janitor in the school where she also studied. A poor woman, with other responsibilities as a wife and a mother. Imagine these roles, rolled into one person. And above all these responsibilities, still strived to work outside the family to educate herself. Now, at 43, she, together with a daughter graduated from high school.

“Natatawa ako at naiiyak. Para akong naiilang kasi ang tanda-tanda ko nang mag-aral.”

Lorena, her daughter who graduated with her said “wala po ako naramdamang hiya kasi wala naman pong masama kung mag-aral siya kasi ang gusto lang naman niya yong makapagtapos siya ng high school para ma-permanent sa trabaho niya.”

She challenges students “hindi hadlang ang katandaan para mag-aral.”

Very well said maam, hats off!

Truly inspiration. Indeed, if there’s a will, there will be many ways to achieve those dreams.

Congratulations Ms Desilyn and wish you more success.
