What I like about the month of March is the celebration of the success of many students. Every year, I read stories of students from poor and impoverished families whose diligence and perseverance brought sweet fruits of getting a degree and honors . I also read stories on how parents work hard to provide for their children's education and to see their smiles when March comes as their kids will finally receive that small paper that may change their lives.
This year is no different. I already read several success stories of poor students who are graduating with honors like the girl who will be graduating magna cum laude in Laguna whose father is a garbage collector, and another finally finishing high school after a stint in drug rehab like Jiro Manio. March seems to bring happiness and hope to every student, may it be from elementary, who are excited to lay their dainty little feet on the high school grounds to experience high school life, to high school graduates who are mixed excited and nervous of going to college, and those of college graduates who are hopeful and doubtful whether they'll get the job they want, or if they're ever going to get a job.
Whatever the month of March brings, it is surely one of the memorable moments that every one of us had and will have experienced.
To all the graduates of batch 2012, congratulations and good luck!
