Roselyn Gunnawa

Instead of the traditional bouquet of flowers, Roselyn received a unique gift from her mother, Regielyn, in Tabuk City: a bouquet comprised of 150 pieces of P1,000 bills, amounting to a total of P150,000.

Gratitude Amidst Challenges

Roselyn, who completed her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Major in Marketing Management with Specialization in Business Analytics, expressed her gratitude for her mother's thoughtful gesture. Despite not graduating with honors, Roselyn's academic journey was not without its challenges. She candidly shared the difficulty of maintaining her grades, particularly after the loss of her father in April 2022.

Financial Wisdom and Future Ventures

The cash gift from her mother holds both sentimental and practical significance for Roselyn. While the monetary value is substantial, Roselyn plans to use it wisely, prioritizing savings as she embarks on her post-graduation journey. With aspirations of entrepreneurship in mind, Roselyn aims to invest in her future endeavors, including her dream of opening a store specializing in cakes and baked goods.

A Heartfelt Message

In a heartfelt tribute to her mother, Roselyn expressed her deep appreciation for Regielyn's unwavering support and love. Her message reflected the strong bond between mother and daughter, strengthened by shared experiences and triumphs.


Roselyn Gunnawa's graduation day was made even more memorable by her mother's unique gesture of presenting her with a bouquet of cash. This extraordinary gift symbolized not only her achievement but also the love and support of her family.

As Roselyn looks ahead to the future, she carries with her the fond memories of graduation day and the encouragement of her loved ones to pursue her dreams with determination and resilience.
