I remember a story of a friend in the Philippines; his name is Michael Dodongan. Growing up in a province of a third world country is a big difference if we compare how a young fellow grew in urban areas. Poverty is an everyday view. It is in everyday’s breakfast, lunch and dinner, if his family can afford the three meals a day. If meal is a struggle, so do education is.
In order to finish high school, Michael needed to spend times in selling foods. In a third world country, selling foods on street is a usual business. Others “walk” with food containers on hand and shouting to attract buyers. Early in the morning, he has to sell foods to earn his allowance and tuition fee. There were points in his life that he has to eat once or twice a day either to cut household expenses or there’s no money to buy food.

We dream of things. We dream of becoming someone we want to be. We stay longer than we should facing the mirror of desire and visualize our selves five years from now or so. And the mirror of desires and dreams will turn into windows of opportunity where we are given a chance to live the life we want to live in.
We dream and then we act. One of our actions towards our dream is right education, a high quality education. It is our right. It is our freedom. It is our gateway in turning the mirrors of dreams into windows of opportunities. When you finish your education with flying colors or even with an honor, job opportunities will run after you.
