Since the end of the school year has passed, many proud graduating or graduated students have shared their stories of success on social media. One such tale that became a sensation on social media is the inspirational story of a housemaid who finally received her diploma after years of hard work.
Being a working student is a difficult feat for anybody; prioritizing your education while working for your pay at the same time is enough to break anyone’s spirit. People who managed to succeed in both fields deserve respect and one of them is Roselyn Pacia.
Her inspirational story has been circulating online ever since it went viral on Facebook. Pacia works as an all-around housemaid while at the same time working hard for her degree. Based on her viral Facebook post, the journey was a difficult because of the difficulty in balancing a demanding work schedule with her education.
Working as an all-around housemaid for a large household was difficult, but fortunately for Pacia her employers were very understanding. She completes her household chores during the day while she studied every night at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina. She pursued a degree in Business Administration.
Since she couldn’t take all units at the same time, she worked a bit longer than expected until she managed to complete all of her required classes.
There are still times when she cracked under pressure, even though she was used to this hectic schedule. In her elaborate Facebook post, she revealed that she sometimes cry due to exhaustion and pressure from her work and studies.
Back in the province, things weren’t looking good for Parcia as well. Her heart was broken when she found out that her father and sister died just months in between. Even though she was ready to give up, she did not lose her sight on her ultimate goal.
In the end, all of her efforts paid off when she finally graduated from college! Her sleepless nights and exhausting days were all leading to her graduation day, when she got to receive her college diploma. It’s really amazing what perseverance can do to a person.
The housemaid’s story serves as a beacon of inspiration to other people who are also struggling. Motivated by her hard work, netizens saluted Pacia for a job well done.
