From street kid to a college scholar in Germany


He was a street kid who sold roses in the streets to go to school and now he is in Germany for college.

Daniel Dejapin was only 6 years old when he decided to run away from home because of his parents' lack of care and affection towards him and he could not understand why many people went in and out of their house regularly.

He then lived in the streets, selling roses instead of sniffing harmful substances, like what other street kids did, to send himself to school.

He strived so hard and finished high school with the help of his teachers. Despite the bullying he experienced from fellow classmates, he did not give up on his dream to finish studying and to have a good life.

Dejapin is a brilliant boy and he was able to acquire a scholarship from Aguinaldo International School where he graduated as a high school student. He did not stop there, he wanted to further his studies as he knew he could have more opportunities if he finishes college.

After months of relentlessly looking for scholarships, a United World College scholarship was given to him, enabling him to study in Robert Bosch College in Germany.

He is currently living in Germany, studying in the said college. His hard work and perseverance paid off but he is not stopping there as he gain more goals to fulfil.

Rappler interviewed Dejapin for his amazing story and he shared life lessons that will inspire all of us.

"Gusto kong malaman ng mga tao na... Ang batang kalye kasi pag binigyan mo sila ng oportunidad na mailabas yung talento nila, na mailabas yung kung anumang kaya nila," he said.

"Nagbabago siya kasi bawa't oportunidad na binibigay sa isang bata, lalo na sa batang kalye, kailangan lang talaga palakasin yung loob, palakasin lang yung paniniwala nila. Magbabago din sila. Katulad ko. Kasi kung wala yung mga tao sa paligid ko, isa pa rin ako sa kanila or isa pa din ako sa mga batang nagtitinda ng bulaklak," he added.
