Super Mommy Pursuing Education

Just like our Super Mommy, it’s never too late to get your education, pursue your passion and achieve your ambition. Dreams do come true for as long as you do not give up and stand firm to achieve your goals.

Mylene C. Sumague, a mother of 3 and a “kakanin” vendor, aspires to be a teacher. Despite her busy life and schedule, she decided to pursue her studies to make an impact on her kids. She is currently enrolled at NTC, taking up Bachelor of Elementary Education.

According to Mylene, “nagpatuloy po ako mag aral kahit ako’y isang magulang na para sa aking mga anak. Gusto ko ipakita sa kanila na hindi hadlang ang edad at kalagayan sa buhay para makamit ang pangarap. Gusto ko pong maipamulat sa mga batang kaisipan nila na patuloy mangarap at mag-aral para sa magandang kinabukasan.”

Mylene wanted her children to understand the value of education. She wanted to underscore that you do not need to sacrifice your dreams for as long as you have a personal vision of excellence despite personal struggles. She wanted to be a teacher to hone young minds and help them realize that education will help us realize our dreams whatever state you are in.

“Pangarap ko pong maging isang butihing Guro. Sa NTC ako nag enroll dahil alam ko po na marami akong matututunan at pinangarap ko po talagang makapagtapos sa National Teacher College,” said Mylene.

Indeed, discouragement or uncertainties often hound us and hinder us from pursuing our dreams. Yet, Mylene was able to ignite the inspiration and find ways to chase after her passion. There are times when she would attend her online classes while selling her products. Yet, her teachers noted that she is very active in class and can juggle being a mother, a vendor, and a student at the same time.

“Isa sa mga pagsubok na dumating ay ang kawalan ko ng kaalaman sa paggamit ng mga makabagong gadget at kawalan ng hanapbuhay pero sa tulong ng Panginoon unti unti akong natuto at sa ngayon nakakaipon ako upang makabayad sa aking tuition fee,” said Mylene.

Yes, there are many reasons to give up. But, as they say, you can always find a way to do it if you want to do it. Mylene shows us that our dreams don’t have an expiration date. Finding the right inspiration can develop the right behavior, adopt creativity, view the world positively, and find the potential you need to pursue your passion and achieve your ambition.

NTC, a premier institution under a Yuchengco-Ayala educational partnership, ensures that Filipinos will have access to quality education at a reasonable cost.

NTC Partnered with experts in remote learning to ensure the effective delivery of its remote learning. These include: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)-JWEL who works with member organizations to promote excellence and transformation in education to address global opportunities for scalable change in education; Mapua University, one of the pioneers in distance learning, has been continuously improving learning connectivity online even before ECQ; Derrick Latrielle ran learning and development operations for blue-chip technology, telecommunications, and BPO companies operating around the world, especially in South America and Southeast Asia; and, Dr. Edizon Fermin is a member of CHED’s Technical Working Group on Remote Learning.

NTC’s learning continuity plan is clear: stay safe at home and learn meaningfully with assistance from our responsive remote staff, either through calls, texts, social media messages, or emails. The world may have changed drastically, but NTC’s commitment to providing accessible and quality education remains steadfast.
