Pedro grew up in the slums of Tatalon, Quezon city in the Philippines. Through sheer hard work and dedication Pedro was able to get into the renowned De La Salle University in Manila. Pedro will always remember his humble beginnings in the slums and the adversities that he faced. He is immensely grateful to the support from AkarakA.
“Having my tuition fees sponsored was a huge help to me, also the additional support of living expenses also ensured that I felt a sense of belonging to such a renowned University and studied and worked like a normal student”.
