Anak ng isang magsasaka, pumasa sa 13-prestigious Universities at makakatanggap ng tumataginting na 11-M - The Daily Sentry


Anak ng isang magsasaka, pumasa sa 13-prestigious Universities at makakatanggap ng tumataginting na 11-M




Kinabibiliban ngayon ang talino ng isang graduating Senior High School student na si Benjamin Arches Baui matapos nitong mapagtagumpayang maipasa ang hindi lang basta isa o dalawa kundi labintatlong sikat na mga Unibersidad bilang isang scholar. Pito rito ang mula sa mga kilalang prestihiyosong International Universities at anim ang mula sa mga sikat na paaralan dito sa bansa.  


Gumawa ng ingay ngayon sa social media ang kanyang pangalan at achievement dahil ang alok na scholarship award sa kanya ay aabot sa tinatayang PHP11 million.


Anak ng isang magsasaka si Benjamin na Tubong Sto. Tomas, Isabela, pangarap niyang kumuha ng kursong Architecture sa napupusuang unibersidad na papasukan sa Ohio, USA.



“Ang plano ko po is grab the opportunity in Xavier University. Yun po yung pinakamataas na na-receive kong scholarship, which costs PHP1.5 million per year, into five years of my course…. Then probably it will cost me, I will receive [a scholarship] approximately PHP7 million,” 


Hindi mapantayan ang tuwa't saya na kanyang naramdaman na aminadong hindi naging madali ang pinagdaanang mga proseso para makakuha at maipasa ang scholarship grants ng mga kapita-pitagang unibersidad.


“Nag-pay off naman po yung hardship ko from writing recommendations, application letters, letter of appeal, from examining…” 


“Sa libu-libong mga aplikante na natanggap at nasuri ng Admission’s Committee, ako ay namumukod-tangi. Sobrang puno ng puso ko ngayon. Ni hindi ko alam kung paano ilalabas ang halo-halong emosyon na nararamdaman ko ngayon,"


Ibinahagi rin ni Benjamin na nagka-ideya lamang siya sa ganitong malalaking oportunidad makapag-aral abroad dahil sa isang Facebook post at doon na rin siya humingi ng tulong.



“Ang makamit ang isang pangarap ay napakagaan sa loob. It is only a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so I’m really willing to grab it,” he added.


“Inaamin ko na magiging mahirap para sa akin ang mga bagay dahil kailangan kong kumita ng sapat na pera upang manatili sa Estados Unidos.” 


Nagbigay rin siya ng payo para sa lahat ng mga katulad niyang nangangarap lang din noon mabigyan ng pagkakataong makapag-aral sa prestihiyosong paaralan. 


“Ang pinaka importante po sa lahat ay maging disiplinado po sa pag-aaral and maging responsable po. And don’t let your anxiety deter you from achieving your dreams,”


“Wag kang mapaghinaan ng loob sa mga bad feedbacks from other people, don’t doubt yourself and you should find strength in yourself to achieve your dream po,”



“Back when I was a child. It was just a dream. It all started with a vision and now I achieved it po,"


Handa niyang tiisin ang mapalayo ng matagal sa kanyang mga magulang para tahakin ang malaking oportunidad para sa sarili at para sa kanyang pamilya na nais niyang maiahon ang mula sa problemang pinansyal.


Narito ang kanyang kahanga-hangang post:
