GRADUATED as Bachelor of Science Business Administration major in Marketing Management
“I was a sponsored student of Young Focus starting in Grade 4. I admit, before, I didn’t know what education really meant. I didn’t know which path I should take. There was even a point in my life when I got confused and wondered if I was still doing the right thing. I decided to stop attending classes in college because I was discouraged after receiving a failing grade. I thought it was the end for me. But Young Focus gave me a chance to prove myself once more. My YF coordinator helped me find and then transfer to a new college where I could continue my education. It was still challenging, but I can say that, as the days passed by, I realized how I should not take for granted the chance that was given to me, a chance that is not given to all young people.
Young Focus taught me how to fight for my dream, no matter how difficult the situation is. I will always be grateful for the training, especially for giving me the confidence that there is a future in education. I learned to consider also my family, and not only myself, before giving up too easily on something. I learned to value my family, my education, and my life, and with this I was able to graduate and find a job.
Indeed, being part of this organization, this family, is a blessing from God to me. I hope that there will be many more students who are inspired to finish their education and pursue their dreams through Young Focus.”
