In a statement today, 2017 September LET 2nd placer Anthony Geromo revealed that his mantra in life is “1% ambition, 49% hardwork and 50% prayer.”
A transfer student from Silliman University, Geromo began his CTU career in 2013 when he felt it was the “best choice” for him not to burden his family.
“I don’t have enough. My father has a small business; he butchers cows and sells the meat. My mom is a housewife. And I’m second of five siblings.”
The determination to dream big welled in his consciousness and its fruition is indeed incomparable to all the hardships.
Closer to home, CTU Malabuyoc offered him a choice not found in CTU Samboan back then, a BEEd degree. This he thought was the way to go after leaving the path of a mechanical engineer in his previous school.
Though resources were “extremely limited” yet he believed “CTU pointed me where to look and what to look for.”
Honed at CTU Malabuyoc as the Student Supreme Council president, he would always have something to impart to his future students.
His humble take on the achievement resonates his being a true servant as he declared the next step—to teach in a public school.
Geromo first learned of the news from a friend and also a passer Flordelez Macion. He thought of it as a dream that would never be a reality. RM
