The “Wheel” to Fulfill

 By Azela Batulan

It was the summer of 2010 when CHMSCians saw him. And since then, he became a head turner for he is a clear picture of a determined person, willing to acquire education despite all the odds.

He is Edson M. Leyte, a 19-year-old student from Purok Tumpok, Zone 15
. And as his wheelchair keeps on moving, his eagerness towards learning and earning a Bachelor Degree keeps him going and continue to flame. His very supportive mother and brother are his strength and inspiration in attaining all his goals.
Way back at the age of 7, Edson encountered an accident which greatly affects his spinal cord, that caused him to stay at his wheelchair. From then on, a new chapter in his life unfolds. Changes occurred that transformed him into a stronger and better person. Despite some difficulties he never stopped believing in his potentials. In fact, he had accomplished a lot because he has the will.
He finished his elementary years at Banago Elementary School and secondary at Doña Montserrat Lopez Memorial High School. After which, he enrolled at RTC TESDA, Talisay taking Consumer Electronics Servicing which paved his way to pass the NC II examination.
Furthermore, he ranked number 1 in the over-all result for enrollment of BSIT- Electronics Technology program for this qualifying school year. Aside from doing well in academics, he does excellently in drawing.
“Physical disabilities are not a hindrance for a person to realize his ambition and for him to be successful.” this said Edson.
He also added that hopefully, five years from now, he would see himself a successful individual in his chosen field and in the future to have either his own company, be it a small or large business to prop up his family’s needs.
