David Caimoy, a 27-year-old Igorot breadwinner from Bauko, Mountain Province, graduated at the top of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Class 20-2022 "Mandatos" Corrections Basic Recruit Course.

CO1 David Caimoy, a 27-year-old Igorot breadwinner from Bauko, Mountain Province, has always dreamed of entering the uniformed service. After graduating from Mountain Province State Polytechnic College with a Bachelor of Science in Criminology in 2017, he passed the board exam in 2018 and took the Armed Forces of the Philippines Service Aptitude Test (AFPSAT) and passed. He was able to finish his probationary training course in 2019.

However, Caimoy's plans were derailed by the COVID-19 pandemic. With the job market in flux, he was forced to take on labor jobs like delivering frozen foods to earn money for his family. Despite the challenges, he never gave up on his dream of serving the country.

Being the firstborn of four children, he had to step up and help his mother provide for the family since they lost his father in 2012. What pushed him even further to try again for the uniformed service was the birth of his first child in 2021.

In December 2022, Caimoy was accepted into the Class 20-2022 "Mandatos" Corrections Basic Recruit Course (CBRC) and began his training. He faced several challenges during his training, including homesickness, the physical demands of the program, and the emotional challenges of being a breadwinner. However, he persevered and graduated at the top of his class last week of June 2023.

Caimoy's story is an inspiration to us all. He shows us that no matter what challenges we face, we can achieve our dreams if we never give up. He is a true role model for young people who aspire to serve their country.

Here are some of the challenges that Caimoy faced:

  • The COVID-19 pandemic
  • The job market
  • Being a breadwinner
  • Being the eldest of 4 children and losing his father at a young age
  • The birth of his first child
  • Homesickness
  • The physical demands of the training program

Here are some of Caimoy's accomplishments:

  • Graduated at the top of his class at the Bureau of Corrections
  • Passed the board exam for criminology
  • Passed the AFPSAT

Despite the challenges, Caimoy persevered and graduated at the top of his class. He is an inspiration to us all and shows us that we can achieve our dreams if we never give up. He is a true role model for young people who aspire to serve their country.

Caimoy is now a full-fledged correction officer. He is excited to start his career and make a difference in the lives of others. He knows that his journey has not been easy, but he is grateful for the opportunity to serve his country.
