Filipino farmer’s son gets full scholarship at Harvard University

The following story is a clear proof that with hard work you can overcome any obstacle in life. This is a story about the son of a Filipino farmer. The boy did not only get accepted at Harvard University but he also got full scholarship. Lots of people lose faith just because they are not given the opportunity they need, but with hard work you can achieve anything. Feeling helpless because you think you have bad faith was not something this boy did.

Being born in poverty is a physical and mental challenge. Even though his family was poor, this boy continued getting his education even though he had to cross a river every day on his way to school. His father supported him in his goal of getting proper education and he worked really hard.

The boy’s name is Romnick L.Blanco. He was one of the best students in his school. He was supported by a charity called Green Earth Heritage that helps other students like him. This charity is also providing computer classes and literacy to students. Due to his good marks and intelligence, Romnick was given scholarship by the International School Manila where he got the highest marks on every subject.

He soon caught the attention of lots of universities including the most prestigious such as Wesley, New York and Dartmouth University. However, he accepted the scholarship from Harvard University.

Romnick recently started his studies at Harvard and he is still doing very well. After he graduated in 2017, he took a year off to travel around the world and he visited many countries. Even though he currently studies at Harvard, he still remembers his roots. He has planted more than 1,500 plants in his father’s field. His parents could not be more proud or happier that their child is succeeding in his life.
