In raising triplets, you know you will have three times the trouble, three times the costs, and three times of everything – and for a family in Naguilian, Isabela in the Philippines, it also means three times the happiness, three times the pride, and three times the accomplishments!
The 16-year-old Pascua triplets had just completed junior high school from Naguilian National High School in the top 3 of their class. Ma. Dianah Therese is first honor, Ma. Dianah Florence is second honor, and Ma. Dianah Joyce is third honor.
The triplets’ mommy Mary Joy Pascua revealed that the three have been quite competitive and have always been in the top 3 of the class, simply interchanging their ranks since kindergarten!
But while everyone expects that they help each other out in their studies, the triplets admitted that they are so competitive that they actually study by themselves and only seek help in the most difficult tasks they couldn’t do on their own.
Such attitude has led to their triple accomplishment – but they don’t harbor ill will against each other because they have been used to simply competing among themselves.
The three are headed to Manila for their senior high school and college degree. Asked what they are planning to take in college and their dream job, all three had the same answer: they all want to become a lawyer just like their dad who is now a judge.
Indeed, these three have given their parents triple the joy and triple the pride in their accomplishments – and they would surely be formidable as, perhaps, the country’s first lawyer triplets?
