To begin, I am now 3 years in TTSP as a Design Engineer in Accommodation Piping (AP) team.
Looking back, I was a Jollibee crew and a full-time student for four years, struggling to make both ends meet. I worked 8 hours a day and studied 6 hours or more. It was the hardest job I had because every task must be carried out swiftly in accordance with strict standards of food preparation. I was always under pressure at work, plus, the demands of my studies. There were times I lose hope of becoming an Engineer.
One time, my professor reprimanded me to choose between working and studying because I always fell asleep in my subjects. It was tiresome and I felt so much pain emotionally with my struggles. However, I still continued with what I thought was the right thing to do. I worked even harder as a Jollibee scholar and as an Engineering student. I could only thank the Almighty for the strength, as well as my family and friends for the support in helping me surpassing my trials.
My experience as a fast food crew helped me to be stronger and quick in decision-making. The demands of work helped me to be strong physically, mentally and spiritually. It contributed to my effective time management and helped me to be flexible with different kinds of people. It has become easy for me to get along well with my current workmates, especially to my teammates.
Now, I am honored to have become a part of TTSP, which is a reputable ship designing company. It was a great opportunity for me to be dispatched to Japan last year 2017. I am thankful that TTSP gives importance to employees and their respective families. It affords work and family time balance which I didn’t have in my previous job.
Thus, to those who are still struggling to realize their goals, I encourage them to never lose hope. Make prayer an important part of your journey for strength and guidance. Be humble always and have patience. Strive for your dreams despite the hindrances. I made it and so you will.
Thinking that I finished college, paying for my own tuition with my meager salary was a great achievement. I am proud of what I have overcome in my hurdles. To all working students out there, I wish you God’s blessings.
