“EXCITED AKO!” … what about you?  Do you dare believe in the power of “YOU”?  Do you believe “na MAGALING KA?”  Do you ever tell this to yourself?

YES YOU ARE! “MAGALING KA!”

Let me prove it to you! See how you’ve given out your best in these pics:

So, tell it to your SELF now: “Aba, MAGALING PALA AKO!”

Our beloved 17 Grade Six and 36 Preschool Graduates, Congratulations!  It is indeed an honor for me, NOT AS YOUR GRADUATION SPEAKER  but as GOD’S MESSENGER to this Highly Significant occasion.

Our Honorable Directress DR. ELISA G. CHUA, esteemed Teachers, supportive Staff, valued Parents of Batch 2016 Graduates of SPARK Academy of Global City, “Merci Beaucoup!”[French] … “Thank you very much!” … “Daghang Salamat!” … “Mil Gracias!” [Spanish] “a thousand thanks.”. “Maraming Salamat po!” This momentous event could not have been possible if not because of you and the many ways of saying “thank you” could never be enough to reward what you’ve done to these graduates!

YOU WERE THE “HANDS that HELD” each of your child’s CONFIDENCE.

You were there while they were having difficult times.  Everytime they commit mistakes, you extended your patience to correct and guide.  Even if you have your own problems, your commitment never gave up  because there within your heart … YOU LOVE! … and for that, YOU ROCK!

And hey, NO MATTER what circumstances and in HOWEVER WAYS, your PERSISTENCE made them gather more than just memories that will forever leave a legible mark on who they are right NOW:

GRADUATES, could you recall how you’ve felt in those pictures?

… ‘yong mga panahon na gusto mo pang matulog pero ang kulit nina mom/dad sa panggigising sayo?  … times na di mo pala nagawa assignment mo or may nakaligtaan kang gawin dahil sa dami ng mga activities mo? .. or yong iba, dahil sa kaka-dota, kaka-fb, atbp 😀 … yong mga pagkakataon na nave-very good ka or napapagsabihan din nina sir at mam; … times na halos mag-friendship over na kayo dahil sa mis-understandings … atbp …

Through the years, months, weeks … there were experiences na malungkot, may masaya, may nakaka-bad trip, may nakaka-good vibes … EVERYTHING HAPPENED FOR A PURPOSE!

“Ang galing nyo dahil lahat ‘yon, nalagpasan nyo – kaya eto, MOVING UP na kayo! Pero UMPISA PA LANG LAHAT ito NG PWEDE NYONG MAGAWA!

“Kabataan Mula sa K to 12, Tagapagdala ka ng Kaunlaran sa Bansang Pilipinas” FROM THIS DAY ONWARDS, you will be MOVING UP to another level in your life.

Tandaan mo lang: Kabataan, may sikreto kung paano ka magiging parte “kaunlaran na ito!” Ask me HOW?  … let me share with you this parable :

Kabataan, ang sikreto kung paano ka magiging Tagapagdala ng Kaunlaran sa Bansang Pilipinas?

BE LIKE that PENCIL in the Parable!

1st, BE HELD IN GOD’S HANDS.

WAG KANG MANIWALA LANG na magaling ka; instead, MAGTIWALA KA that we have our GOD na tutulungan kang makagawa ng magagandang bagay para sa kung “ano ang gusto mong MAGING” … teacher, doctor, engineer, entrepreneur… ALLOW GOD to work in your life para magawa mo ang PURPOSE MO.

2nd,  DON’T COMPLAIN KAPAG NAHIRAPAN KA.

That pencil needs to be sharpened as needed para magawa nya ang task nya: TO WRITE! Masasaktan ka habang tinatasahan, pero pagkatapos ay magiging mas maganda ang sulat mo para mabuo mo ang istorya ng buhay mo na walang ibang susulat kundi IKAW!

3rd,  OKEY LANG MAGKAMALI, PERO AMININ MO na NAGKAMALI KA!

God has given you an ERASER para maitama mo ang bawat pagkakamali NA HINDI SINASADYA!  Yes, make sure na hindi mo sinasadyang ulit-ulitin ang pagkakamali kasi ang eraser kapag lagi mong ginagamit sa iisang mali, nauubos, nasasayang.

4th,  ALWAYS “SELF-CHECK” ANG “GANDA NG KALOOBAN MO”!

“Whatever is inside of you” will come out in your words and in your actions and what God wants: that you MAKE YOURSELF STRONG in the INSIDE para hindi ka madaling mabali kahit na minsan o madalas ay mahihirapan ka.”

5th,  CREATE YOUR MARK and MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

Ipakilala mo “kung sino ka”, Wag mong pigilan ang mga pwede mong maisulat na maganda tungkol sa’yo kasi remember, “YOU ARE HELD IN GOD’S HANDS”!

Katulad ko, maging EXCITED KA na isulat ang pangarap mo!  Maging EXCITED KA SA KUNG ANO ANG KAYA MONG GAWIN … kasi, “MAGALING KA!” … “YOU ARE AWESOME”

Tell it to yourself NOW: “I AM GREAT, I AM AWESOME”

Do you know WHY? … kasi “YOU are HELD IN GOD’S HANDS!”

At ang pinakahuling sikreto: makalimutan mo man ang LIMA huwag lang ito: LISTEN – not just with your ears; but with your heart!  YOU AS THAT PENCIL, you can only WRITE WELL if you LISTENed WITH YOUR HEART!

GRADUATES, kung naramdaman ninyo sa puso nyo ang halaga ng ilang taon na pinaghirapan ninyo, ng mga magulang nyo at ng SPARK ACADEMY OF GLOBAL CITY para sa inyo …at kung pinakinggan ninyo ang PAGMAMAHAL nilang lahat na hindi nag-give up sa inyo hanggang sa araw na ito, YOU, AS THAT PENCIL COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE  –you will eventually be able to fulfill your ROLE AS A YOUTH: kakayanin ninyong magdala ng Kaunlaran sa ating Bansang Pilipinas dahil una nyong pina-unlad ang inyong sarili – you can only give what you have!

And for that, please don’t miss the chance [as you sing later on] to pay gratitude to God, to your parents and to your mentors. Give them your warmest hug and your sincerest “thank you” – but most importantly, keep such gratefulness deep within and tell yourself, this SPARK will always remain in me: Spiritual.Patriotic.Artistic.Responsible.Knowledgeable!

Once more, our Honorable Directress DR. ELISA G. CHUA, esteemed Teachers, valued Parents of this Batch and 2016 Graduates of SPARK Academy of Global City, KUDOS to you all, God is smiling at you, CONGRATULATIONS!!!
