Life is hard especially when you are living in the poverty line. Not only that you struggle getting the basic commodities in living every day, you have to put extra effort compared to those who belong in the middle to the elite class.
With situations like this, some children have no choice but to work instead of solely focusing on their education. This is the case of a young girl that netizen Jade De Luna shared on her social media account.
According to her post, she was riding a jeepney when a young female student boarded the vehicle, carrying a bag of rags.
They were all surprised when the girl asked the driver if he can accept his rags as his fare for the ride. The driver refused her offer.
One of the passengers saw her plead and insisted that he will pay for her fare instead. The young girl thanked the man for lending help.
“Pagkatapos ay kinausap po siya ni manang na katabi niya po. Sabi niya nag- aaral daw po siya saTala High. at ang kaniyang mga magulang ay nag titinda lang din po ng basahan,” Jade said in her post.
She also saluted the student for working hard by selling rags while studying.
“So, ayun nakakaiyak na nakakatuwa lang po na di siya huminto sa pag aaral kundi pinag sasabay niya ang pag aaral habang nag titinda ng basahan.
Eh yung iba nga saatin ay pa chill chill lang at sagana pero nagagawa paring mag cutting classes at yung iba pa diyan tinatamad pumasok. Sana gayahain natin si ate gurl and sana maging insirasyon siya sating mga studyante,” Jade said.
She also said that she did not post this to gain likes and shares but to inspire other netizens.
“Diko pinost ito para sa LIKES.
Pinost ko ito para naman maging isang inpirasyon sa mga estudyanteng katulad ko at para nadin matulungan si ate gurl. Sana hipuin ang inyong mga puso at matulungan si ate kahit pang baon lang or gamit sa school.
So, Hello ate gurl ingat ka parati kung sino ka man po. Pagpatuloy mo lang yan, aral ka pong mabuti ikaw din aani ng pag sisikap mo para sa future. GOD BLESS!!” Jade said.
Netizens were indeed inspired by the young girl.
“Saludo ako sa you ate.. Mag aral kang mabuti ate,” Jovelyn Sartillo Cadungo said.
“Go girl. tuloy molang yang kasipagan mo,” Jhamille Montes said.
