Poverty is not a hindrance to have success that’s what my role model said.
He came from a very poor family with 16 siblings. He is the 5th child. He is from Anda, Pangasinan. His father is a carpenter while his mother is a loving housewife.
He studied at West Central Elementary School. Because they don’t have enough money, they can’t afford new uniforms. The old uniforms of his brothers are the one he used.
He work hard for his family and for himself to achieve his goals. He sale pandesal and balot. He also became a scavenger to support his studies.
In his secondary times, he studied at Dagupan City National High School, he always belong to the first section from 1st year to 4th year because he is an intelligent student.
He works first before he goes to college. He work as a construction worker with his father so that he could study. He studied at University of Pangasinan. He work at day and study at night. In his higher years he had some troubles about his schedules so he did cross enroll to Luzon Colleges and it is because some subjects are not offered at University of Pangasinan. He transferred at Luzon Colleges on his next semester so that he can work at day. After 6 years and a half of hard-working he graduated with a degree, Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, He continue, to help his father, until his father give him a solo projects, to have more experience in construction. And because he is earning he didn’t find time to take his board examination. He tried to apply in some companies but he was disappointed because the company are looking for a registered engineer. So he save money for his review and he finally take his board examination on May 1986 hoping that the results would be released on November. But because of Edsa Revolution it takes 11 months when the results are released. He passed the board exam on May 1987. He is now a full pledge registered Civil Engineer.
