In the past few months, we would pass by the Jollibee branch near the house on our way home after hearing Mass. At the drive-through counter, our attendant would often be Jessa. She was always cheerful and smiling. We had come to expect her to be there every week. But lately, we have not seen her at the drive-through counter. So we were surprised when she was there again tonight. We found out that the reason why she wasn’t at her usual shift was that she had gone back to school. I am in awe at her perseverance. She works a shift at the fastfood chain then goes to school the rest of the time. She really wants to get an education to help her in life. I wish all young people were like her in that they value education.
