I am Jim Carl J. Primo, 24 years old, graduated from University of Makati, Philippines with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education major in General Science. I’m blessed to be one of the honor students of our batch and a proud pioneer of K to 12 Program in the country. I was awarded by Caritas Manila Inc. as one of the Most Outstanding Student Servant Leader. I’m a consistent servant-leader at school, in the church and even in the community.
I am the eldest son of Jaime (55 years old ) and Carmen Primo (54 years old). My father is a carpenter while my mother is a housewife. I have 5 siblings; 3 brothers and 2 sisters.
ANCOP scholar story
I was an ANCOP scholar for about 3 years. The Child Sponsorship Program of ANCOP helped me a lot in my financial needs at school. It may not be enough to provide everything that I needed, the financial assistance made it possible for me to finish my studies.
My family is my greatest inspiration in everything I do, especially in my studies. The challenges that I face everyday fuels me to strive to be better and do more so that I can give my family a sense of pride. Our financial status challenged me to graduate on time so I can land a stable job for my family.
If I can give an advise to my fellow scholars, it would be this:
“Always strive hard in whatever you do. Consider all the challenges as an opportunity to improve yourself and be better. Rest when you feel empty and tired, but do not quit! Remember, quitters don’t win in any battle. Endure the pain and suffering that comes your way, you will gain something good from it in the future. Lastly, do not forget to thank all the people behind your success. “
I enrolled at a Review Center after graduation to prepare myself for the Licensure Examination for Teachers. If I will pass the exam and become a full-fledged licensed teacher, I will apply for a job right away. I want to be financially stable after 5 years so I can make my dreams for my family possible, the soonest that I can.
To sponsors and ANCOP Canada
To my sponsor who made my scholarship possible, thank you so much. I will always include you and your family in my daily prayer. May God bless you more so that you can give more.
To ANCOP Canada, you are making a great difference in many people’s lives most especially to us, the ANCOP scholars. May God bless you more so you can help more less-privileged people like me. More power! Keep leading! Keep transforming people’s lives through education!
