Bago pa man dumating ang graduation ng High School, nag-set na ako ng plano sa aking buhay.
I was aware that sending me to College would be expensive for my parents. This was my basis to come up with a decision in taking a 2-year course first, then find a job and continue my education for a 4-year degree course.
I prayed to God and submitted my dreams to guide me and show me the right way to walk through. I was surprised when I received a letter from MSC regarding my 100% scholarship for a short course in Computer Operation. I was surprised … then I grabbed that opportunity.
On 1997, I finished my 2-year Computer Technology Course, which was full of training and hands-on experiences.
Ang hirap mag-apply ng trabaho! Buti na lang nandyan ang MSC para pansamantalang kanlungan at lalo ka pang bibigyan ng mga actual training. MSC gave me priceless skills and abilities which I treasure up to now. Ito ang nagamit ko sa aking kasalukuyan trabaho upang mapa-bilib ang mga boss ko, Akala kasi nila magaling ako, ang di nila alam MSC ang nagturo sa akin noon.
I was recommended by the President of MSC, Sir Ike to CARD Bank, Inc. I was interviewed by the President of CARD Bank and hired as (probationary) IT Assistant. After 5 months I received my regular appointment and later promoted to IT Officer.
After five years of working with CARD Bank, I decided to resume my studies and took up Accountancy. I was promoted to IT Manager, and later graduated from College.
What drives me to improve my career? Maybe I was influenced by my late father who was a teacher. My father was a working student. Magtatapas (coconut farmer) siya sa umaga at napasok sa gabi. Naging 2nd honor siya noong high school at 1st honor noong college. Hindi naging sagabal kay itay ang pagiging mahirap para makapagtapos.
I may have not received any honors during my study like my father. He may not see me now and witness what I have accomplished. But I hope he is happy for me and proud of me, “My son is now a Certified Public Accountant!”.
