Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying and most of all, love of what you are doing. – Pele’

I was an HR Assistant in one of the top companies here in the Philippines. But before this happened I was once a fulltime mother of 3 kids. My husband is an OFW so technically I raised my children alone. 

Due to my perseverance to have an achievement in life and to make my kids and my mother proud of me someday, I went back to college. I never thought I would be able to finish my studies in spite of all the hard times I experienced. I became a mother, housemaker, student, employee and daughter all at the same time. 

Along the way, I lost my mother, the time I really needed her most. The negative emotion inside me got really developed. I could not see the essence of finishing my studies when that incident happened. I thought of stopping from school and accepting the reality that my career, beyond being a mother will end up there. 

Not until someone reminded me about what I and my mother agreed before she passed away. I promised her that among her children, I will be the one who will finish studies. So I juggled from being a mother, housemaker and an employee as an OJT in a company. Life is tough but I handled everything under my control. Finally, I graduated! 

I graduated at a late age so it is a struggle for me to land a job I really wanted. Until now I am still chasing for my dreams. Hoping it will come true and could be able to help others who also need help. My pursuit of success does not end there. I learned that the real challenges just been started.
