Supporting a college student is not easy

Hubby and I are thankful that our daughter was able to avail a scholarship for without it there is no way we could enroll her to the university she now loves. We are paying half of the tuition every term. It’s still a big amount considering that we only rely on my husband’s salary and some commission that he receives not for wholesale printing but from computer to plate services. We are keeping our options open in case something affects my daughter’s scholarship. But my daughter is really determined to keep her scholarship by studying hard. Here’s the proof of her being a hardworking student. We are proud of her.

Entrance exam update

My daughter took an entrance test in a university in Manila last year. She passed the IQ, Math, English and Science tests but her scores did not meet the school’s required cut-off scores. Even if she qualifies to enroll we may not be able to send her to that school because we cannot afford the tuition fee.


Last Saturday, she took another exam for a different school. My daughter said the test was much easier compared to the first one. And they waited for less than an hour to get the result. She passed the entrance examination and qualified for admission. This university offers the course that she wants to pursue. We will try to look for a scholarship to assist us with the expenses. I know it’s going to be tough for all of us next school year.

My goal

My mom always tells me to do my best while in school. She said that our future depends on the education that we can avail while we are young. I will follow my mom’s advice because I want to have a better future and I want a better life for my family. Mommy knows how I strive hard every school year to be included in the top 10 of my class. I really made her happy and proud. It is also her dream for me and my brother to study in the University of the Philippines. That would be my ultimate goal two years from now. I hope the school offers easy scholarships so I can avail the program. I heard that when one is under a scholarship program, there are certain standards to be met including a grade limit that should be maintained. In two years time, I will be a college student. I’m excited and a little bit nervous because I will be facing a totally different life. But with my parents’ guidance I’m sure I’ll be fine.
