VIRAL GRAB DELIVERY RIDER GRADUATES MAGNA CUM LAUDE

 Francis Jan Ax Valerio, a delivery Grab rider who impressed us all, graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in communication at Adamson University in Manila.



In September 2020 his photo went viral after he was spotted attending online class by the roadside. 





The 23-year-old Valerio, in his social media post recalled that he juggle several jobs such as delivery food rider, service crew for a popular fast food chain and virtual assistant. Back in high school, he used to sell sticky rice cakes and graham balls at schools.



"Gumawa (rin) ako ng mga assignments at activities ng mga kaklase ko kapalit ng konting halaga para lang may pang baon ako sa eskwela," Velerio wrote in a Facebook post.



He explained that working while going to school wasn't easy, "hindi naging madali ang lahat. Mag-deliver umaraw man o umulan, mapuyat sa gabi para pumasok sa isa pang trabaho, sabay na rin dun yung paggawa ng mga school works."



Added that, "Kaya nung nalaman kong ga-graduate ako ng may latin honor eh hindi ko talaga napigilang umiyak dahil alam kong naging sulit ang lahat. Sulit ang pagbibilad sa ilalim ng tirik na araw, sulit lahat ng luha kasabay ng pagbyahe sa gitna ng malakas na ulan, sulit lahat ng puyat maipasa lang ang mga kailangan ipasa sa eskwela."




Valerio thanked and dedicated his achievement to his parent who gave him support.




And to the joy of people across the social media world, one said: "Good job, you are an inspiration to struggling students."



Another comment wrote: "Now that is determination. Good job, young man."
