A learner amazingly inspires his mentor

Finding inspirations from a person who is perceived to have superior knowledge, stronger faith, unvarying motivation, and sound disposition is a customary pattern in today’s circumstances.

Reversely, there comes a time when a mentor surprisingly gets inspired with a learner’s exemplary character and exceptional situation in life.

Other learners may just seem so fortunate to live life with ease and pleasure, a kind of life very far from what Derick Vico has come across.

A native of an island in Batangas City, Derick managed to cling tightly to his dreams that someday he would be able to elevate his status and eventually change the image that other people have stereotyped him.

There were various reasons that hurdled him in pursuing his studies. Poverty was only one of those causes why he dropped out of school after he had hardly finished in the elementary. Being a resident of a far-flung area was another cause of becoming a dropout but the greatest challenge he hardly faced was his condition as a handicapped person.

This condition of him markedly restricts his ability to function physically and effectively. But the power of dreams and burning hopes in him greatly transformed all the imperfections that have long defined him as a person into meaningful opportunities.

Having been a dropout for a couple of years, Derick has then found a slim chance of going back again to the mainstream of basic education when he learned about the Alternative Learning System (ALS).

All the way from Verde Island, his native place, he patiently gets up every Saturday as early as 3:00 o’clock in the morning just to attend the Accreditation and Equivalency learning session in the city where the learning center is. But what is heartbreaking is his way of travelling to reach the learning center. Using his banca, he alone passes through a long seaway of “Matuko” going to Batangas City proper to think that he is deprived of having complete fingers.

“My condition really hinders me to perform tasks effectively but I used this as my strength to strive harder and do what a normal individual does”, Derick said.

This strong determination in him inspired his teacher a lot to help him outdo his struggles and limitations to attain what he truly deserves. His exceptional condition served as a strong drive of his mentor to love more his profession as an ALS teacher.   After more than a year of sacrifices and perseverance, he successfully passed the A&E test administered on April 17, 2016. Everyone could imagine how Derick wrote and answered all the test questions using his bare hands with the absence of fingers.

There was no exact word to grasp to explain and describe the happiness felt by not only this inspiring learner but mostly his proud teacher, Dr. Meniano D. Ebora of JAPMES Learning Center.

There were 697 passers of A&E test who graduated then but Derick’s unique story of optimism, braveness, and fortitude made him somewhat distinctive among all other graduates in the ALS-A&E program.
