Graduating from college is a step that marks a new chapter in students’ lives. It means they have accomplished their dreams and are now ready to embrace the new challenges and find suitable jobs.
These precious moments of joy are even more special because they are shared with the ones we love the most.
Sadly, for a student named Jeric Rivas from the Philippines, who graduated from La Conception College in the city of San Jose del Monte, getting the degree was a bittersweet moment.
He was there all by himself as nobody from his family showed up at the ceremony.
