Lola Paciencia Proves Her Patience to Graduate in College

When I watch the local news on TV that an 80 year old women is getting a college degree I was so happy and felt like if she did it why others can’t. I’ve been more happier and teary eyed when I heard that Mrs. Paciencia Pacibe Tamayo is from Pangasinan too and it truly made me proud that she is from the “Bangus Capital of the Philippines” while me is from the Pilgrimage City of Manaoag.

Lola Paciencia you are a true inspiration and you are the living proof that it is never too old to fulfill your dreams. This should serve as an inspiration to others too, don’t be lazy because I believe there is no dumb person they are just lazy. Am I right? LOL!  😀
