Farmer’s son who spent 8 years to finish college gets top 6 on board exams


 Dreams do come true, especially for dreamers who don't give up for Bryan Eric Olitoquit comes from a poor family in San Fernando, Camarines Sur.


His father Marcial  is a farmer while  his mother  Lourdes is a barangay secretary it took 8 years before he was able to finish college.


Bryan finished his agriculture engineering degree at the Central Bicol State University of Agriculture. Instead of five years, it took Bryan 8 years before finally graduating. "Grabe din kasi struggle noon nina Mama tsaka Papa sa pagpapaaral po sa amin ni Kuya. Nagkanda-bagsak bagsak pa ako at napaulit sa thesis." Bryan said.


According to the dutiful son, he saw how his parents strived hard to make ends meet. Bryan said, "Kita rin po kasi namin yung struggle ng parents namin para makahanap ng pang araw-araw. Tsaka di lang po sila, natulungan rin po kami ng relatives namin dito. Nahihiraman pera pampamasahe, or panggastos sa school."


Landing top 6 in the licensure exam was something Bryan described as "unexpected." He already told his parents that he wasn't confident because the exam was tough. But now with his success, no one could be prouder than Bryan's parents.


He had always believed that education will be his key to success and this will be the way to help him improve the life of his family. His story is truly an inspiring one. It only goes to show that when someone is eager to make his life better and achieve his goals in life, it’s possible and nothing or no one can stop him.
