Mom also marched!
The graduation LIKE.NO.OTHER.
As we scroll down on our social media accounts, we see different graduates posting their acknowledgements and what life brought them to be whoever they were now. Yeeey!
But this story made a huge difference between any of those graduation posts.
44-year-old mom graduates at University of the Philippines—with her son and daughter at the same time.
YUP GUYS! It’s just.. WOW!
We ought to know graduates march with their parents to simply put medals and receive diplomas but this time, the 44-year-old mom marched with her children for them to receive THEIR DIPLOMAS, TOGETHER.
Lorelei Bernardo Aquino graduated from university of the Philippines with her son, Mark Romeo Aquino and her daughter, Lorielle Ann Aquino with their sablay (graduation sash) on. And guess what? Her children were both cumlaudes!
Lorelei was once a student back then in UP when she stopped because of early pregnancy. But she continue to follow her dreams, taking up Business Administration while her son is taking up chemical engineering and her daughter’s a biology student.
A true inspiration it is! Aspiring for deeper sense of learning to conquer even the hardest challenges in life. Congratulations for this brave mom and for her two cum laudes! WHOOOO!
