From being a humble sinturon vendor, Raymart Reyes is now a summa cum laude who’s ready to face the world.
During his last day as a student, Raymart was able to leave a legacy not only to his school but also to everyone present in the event. Take it from Denver Medina himself who happened to be there to cover the commencement exercises of ABE International Business College. Earlier this week, the latter took to Facebook to talk about and honor the inspirational young man for his dedication in life.

While others take their education for granted, Raymart struggled in pushing through with his studies. That is, even he had to leave his family in Quezon Province to move to Manila. During his years as a teenager, the student spent his days away selling sinturon and wallet from Baclaran to Monumento every day by foot. He didn’t have it easy, obviously, but Raymart was resolved to finish what he started.
Alas, when he finally earned enough, the young man went home to Quezon to study college. But while he sought to finish his studies, he still took a part-time job, making sure that he would have enough dough to pay his tuition fees every semester.

Fast forward to 2018, Raymart didn’t only earn his degree in B.S. in Bachelor Administration, but also finished as the class’ summa cum laude. For this, Medina shared one word: RESPECT.
“Sabi nga, if there’s a will, there’s a way. Patunay siya na hindi hadlang ang kahirapan para huminto ka sa pangarap mong makapagtapos. Kung talagang pursigido kang tuparin ang pangarap mo, handa mong gawin ang lahat – kahit na madumi o nakakahiya basta legal at marangal. RESPECT.”
Meanwhile, netizens who were just as inspired also had a few good words to say to Raymart.
