According to Richel, “Five years ago he could barely turn on a computer, we even created an e-mail account for him so he could submit his enrolment documents. He was so shy, he was culture shocked, but was very determined with his unbelievable wit ( Grabe ka bright! ), despite the lack of enough financial and educational preparation.
Now, he is graduating BS Electronics Communications Engineering, CUM LAUDE, Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan. Glory to God!”
