A man from Cebu known as Joyce Dublin is finally going to finished his studies after being held-up for many years.
Now at 30 years old, Dublin is finally going to earn his bachelor's degree, thanks to a passenger he had met while he was working as a "Habal-habal" driver many years ago who helped him reach his dreams.
The passenger offered to pay for his education, after admiring his impressive school performance during his high school years. Dublin was known to be his class' valedictorian.
His mother has been selling bread just to make both ends meet but it wasn't enough to support his education. Dublin has been in multiple jobs to support his family's financial needs, even made a living as stockroom checker in a supermarket for five years.
Joyce is about to graduate as Magna Cum Laude with a degree on Bachelor of Secondary Education, Major in Mathematics. Dublin said that life's struggle is like a math problem: it takes hard work and a whole lot of faith to arrive at the right formula for success.
