“A dream is a vision of a possibility which requires a driven mind and a resilient heart to turn such dream into a reality.”

That’s the message of netizen Jarel Barcelona Tadio, a Deans’ Lister and a Magna Cum Laude from Cagayan State University.

According to his viral Facebook post: “Honestly I can’t still believe that this day would come; that a simple working student from TUAO, CAGAYAN VALLEY would become a consistent dean’s lister and would stand in front of THOUSANDS of people sharing my thoughts of inspiration.”


Jarel is a proud kasambahay (house helper) and a proud Magna Cum Laude.

He shared his experience before achieving his dream of finishing college.

“All the years I thought I was only dreaming of a very simple dream: to give my family a better life and improve our living status. That was the dream I considered my humble dream since when I was a kid.” he said.

Like many, his childhood dream was simple – to provide his family, especially his parents, a better and happier life.

At one point in his life, he was discouraged because of hardships. He thought he can only go as far as high school.


Furthermore, he shared that due to their circumstances, he voluntarily quit school and decided to just help his parents.

However, his parents at that time did not want him to put hold his education. But, Jarel insisted because he did not want his family to go in debt.

He then started working as a house helper. He goes to school in the morning and work at night.

His story touches a lot of netizens, almost all are proud of him and are inspired by him.

As of this writing, the post already has 340K likes and 121K shares.

Jarel graduated with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Hospitality Industry Management.
