Freshman in College
Davao City, Philippines
University of Mindanao
Irene's father died when she was a baby. Her family lost everything in Typhoon Pablo and had to relocate to Davao City where there was some temporary assistance for typhoon victims.
"I finished Elementary and High School in different schools and places almost each year in Davao City and in Davao del Norte as we moved from place to place to survive. After High School, I was not able to go to college right away due to the financial incapacity of my mother to send me to college. After high school, I was out of school for five years waiting for any chances for my college. During those years I helped my mother make Filipino food delicacies so we could somehow be able to buy our daily needs such food, etc. Right now, I am currently enrolled as First-year college student with a major in Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Mindanao in Davao City. I want to be able to finish this course as I desire to be a Psychologist one day to be able to help other people. Also this way, I can work and earn good pay so I can help my parent too. My course is a four-year degree and my anticipated year to graduate will be 2021 as I am not categorized as an official first-year due to lack of funds." —Irene
