A wish comes true

I wish to become an engineer one day.


My name is Richard Pider. I’m 19 years old and I have three siblings. My father is a farmer and my mother is a housewife. Our family income is approximately P5,000 ($130 CAN) monthly.

With the low family income and the high cost of pursuing a university degree, my dream of becoming an engineer would have been impossible, but thankfully, because of Couples for Christ (CFC) ANCOP Child Sponsorship Program and my donors, Narcy and Cely Silla, my wish to become an engineer became reality.

I enrolled in a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Camarines Norte State College in March 2010. I was more blessed when my sponsors financed my review for the Mechanical Engineering Examination, which I passed in 2014.

I thanked my sponsor for being part of my journey and for being my inspiration in striving to succeed. The only thing that came to my mind when I started the review is to pass the board exams, so I worked hard for this goal. God must have seen my hard work because I was able to pass the examination among the 2,960 who also passed.

Also, I have received more blessings from God after passing the examination because God placed me on a higher level and guided me in my search for a job. After a few days of waiting, a company responded to my application as a Petroleum Inspector after undergoing a series of exams and interviews.

I also thank my family who are my inspiration. This achievement would be meaningless without them.
