Sofia Kristianne De Jesus Surat topped the March 2023 LET with a rating of 90.40%, even after her father passed away.

Sofia Kristianne De Jesus Surat is a 23-year-old woman who placed Top 10 in the March 2023 Licensure Examination for Teachers - Elementary (LET) with a rating of 90.40%. This is an incredible achievement, especially considering the challenges she faced along the way.

Surat's father passed away in January 2023, just a few months before the LET. This was a devastating blow, but Surat refused to let it stop her from achieving her dream of becoming a teacher. She put her grief aside and focused on her studies. She also drew strength from her mother, who was undergoing chemotherapy at the time.

With only more than a month to review, Surat knew that she had to make the most of her time. She focused on her strengths and weaknesses, and she made sure to review the most important topics. She also drew strength from her family and friends, who were always there to support her.

"I knew that my father would want me to succeed, so I pushed myself to do my best," Surat said.

Surat's hard work paid off. She passed the LET with flying colors, and she is now one of the most successful young teachers in the Philippines. Her story is an inspiration to us all. It shows that even in the face of adversity, it is possible to achieve your dreams if you never give up.

Surat's story is a testament to the power of resilience. She is a topnotcher who defied all odds to achieve her dream.

Her advice to future LET takers is to never give up and to always believe in yourself. She also says that it is important to have a strong support system.

"Be open to learning new things," Surat said. "And most importantly, never lose sight of your goals."

Surat is a graduate of Saint Louis University in Baguio City. She majored in Elementary Education.

Surat's story is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope. She is an inspiration to us all, and she shows us that anything is possible if we set our minds to it.
