Six friends in Abra have achieved their dream of graduating from college together with magna cum laude and cum laude honors. Clarissa Villareal and Erika Leysa Krizza graduated magna cum laude, while Camille Buenafe, Jhedy Diane Coloma, Glen Balneg, and Marylou Daena Seares graduated cum laude. All six friends graduated from Divine Word College of Bangued with double degrees in Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.
The friends were all inspired by each other's academic success, and they supported each other throughout their college years. They studied together, helped each other with assignments, and cheered each other on during exams.
"We didn't want anyone to be left behind," said Seares. "We had a rule that we didn't tolerate students who were not academically motivated. We chose to surround ourselves with students who were also driven to succeed."
The friends' hard work paid off, and they all graduated with magna cum laude and cum laude honors. They are now looking forward to their future careers, and they are confident that they will be successful.
"We are very happy that we were able to achieve our goal of graduating together," said Seares. "It is a testament to the power of friendship and the importance of surrounding yourself with positive people."
The friends' story is an inspiration to others who are pursuing their own academic goals. It shows that anything is possible when you have the support of your friends and you are willing to work hard.
