Tricycle driver works, studies at the same time for Master's Degree

SHARE:

This hardworking tricycle driver was spotted studying for his exams while waiting for his passengers.

As the old saying goes, the road to success is never easy. But for Rafael Yurag, he's more than willing to take the hard way if it means attaining his goals. Even at an old age, Yurag still perseveres not only in his job as a tricycle driver, but also in his study to finish a Master's Degree in education.

It is rare, but not unusual to find old people studying. During his youth, Yurag was not able to finish school due to poverty. He's now 47 years old with kids of his own, however, his dream to finish school did not cease. As a matter of fact, he even made a way to sustain his education while working.

At first, his live-in partner Renelyn Pencosas expressed her disapproval against Yurag's decision to continue to college. After all, working as a tricycle driver only gives him P400 a day, an amount which is not even enough to provide for their daily needs. In spite of that, Pencosas saw Yurag's determination and finally agreed.

But how exactly did he manage to do it? Yurag exerted double effort to juggle his work and studies. He even works extra hours to provide for his family and sustain his schooling. It definitely wasn't easy as it seems, especially because his work is always on the way. However, Yurag learned to manage his time well.

While waiting for passengers, Yurag takes advantage of the time to study. His worn-out book is strapped to the handlebars of his tricycle, making it accessible for him to study while working. When he's not on the road, he always sticks his nose to books to study his lessons.



After years of working, he finally made it through college with a Bachelor's Degree in Education. But his thirst for knowledge doesn't stop there. Yurag decided to aim for a Master's Degree and today, he is on the second semester of his first year. He is looking forward to teach at their place in Angono, Rizal.

His struggle to maintain balance between his job and his education inspired thousands of people who came upon his story on social media. Recently, Yurag was also featured in television when someone took a photo of him studying and sent it to ABS-CBN. His story was broadcasted nationwide and he received tons of support and prayer from people who were touched with his story.
