Girl Who Took 8 Jobs Just to Finish College, Graduates Cum Laude from UP!

Life wasn’t easy for Geoselle Dela Cruz who experienced everything from going to school on an empty stomach on many occasions, always getting delayed in her school and dorm payments, and having to work at least eight jobs just to support herself and finish college.

She’s done everything from doing tutorials to selling food and pre-loved stuff. She was also a dance choreographer, rappel instructor, and host/emcee in various shows just so she could earn some extra cash.

Indeed, life was hard especially in her fourth year when her mother was hospitalized, her brother suffered from a mental condition, and their electricity was cut off for many months. Yet she managed to complete her thesis, finish all the requirements, and graduate as cum laude!

Isn’t she amazing?
