One of the most fulfilling and happiest moments for parents is to see their children graduate from college, but much more rewarding is knowing that their children passed the board exam and are now full-fledged professionals.
But what would you feel if your children not only passed the board exam but also landed in the top ten?
Just like the daughter of an Empanada vendor and welder who recently passed the Nursing Board Exam and was ranked 10th among all board passers. The said board passer and 10th placer were identified as Shannara Mica Guta Tamayao, a nursing graduate from Laoag City, Ilocos Norte.
Many Filipinos, particularly students, are inspired by this young woman because she proved that poverty is not an obstacle to achieving one’s life goals. Her hard work, perseverance, and the support she is receiving from her loved ones make her achieve the goal she is only dreaming of back then.
Shannara also deserves to win the 10th placer because she has always been an honor student from elementary school to high school. After her efforts and with the help and support of her parents, she graduated with a nursing degree from Mariano State University in Batac, Ilocos Norte.
