RESULTS ARE OUT! – PRC Official Website
My heart almost stopped beating when I knew about the result of the CPALE2018. Lahat ng hirap and sacrifices nag-flashback…
When I took up BS Accountancy, first year palang pressured agad because I am surrounded with high school achievers para silang mga pating na pwede akong kainin anytime. Sabi ko noon, mapasa ko lang ‘yong Basic Accounting masaya na ’ko, I can still remember those nights na iniiyakan ko ‘yong adjusting entries kasi hindi ko talaga maintindihan noong una. Here comes Financial Accounting 1, ang bumago ng pananaw ko sa buhay na hindi pwede yung “pwede na” at “bahala na” kung talagang gusto kong ma-survive itong pinasok ko. I started to discipline myself, as in talagang kahit ilang ulit kong basahin at sagutan ‘yung mga libro, hindi ako tumitigil hangga’t hindi ko naiintindihan ‘yong concept. Kahit mahirap laban lang! Kailangan mong sabayan lahat ng alon na humahampas upang maging matatag ka. Tons of coffee, sleepless nights, hard work, perseverance, and faith – those are the things that keep me going. Surprisingly, I found myself na minamahal na ‘yong Accounting and I actually enjoyed what I am doing. I managed to reach the required grade to proceed on the next level and I also passed the qualifying exams that enable me to finish the Accountancy program.
During review days, I started doubting myself, “ready na ba ako?” “paano pag di ako pumasa?” “anong gagawin ko?” I always felt like I wouldn’t make it and that I was not good enough. But He kept and still keeps proving that I am wrong. If there is one thing that you must have and definitely be your advantage in this battle is your fighting spirit.
October 6 and 7, four out of six subjects done! October 13- the final wave, feeling ko Bar Exam na ‘yong itatake ko dahil sa pinagsamang RFBT at Taxation. Until now I can’t still believe how I managed to survive those three nerve-wracking days. Of course after every exam, I went straight to the Church para magpasalamat at humingi ng guidance na kung ano man ang maging resulta ay kaya kong tanggapin nang buong buo.
October 23, 2018. Kalmado ang karagatan pero ako’y kinakabahan. I asked someone to look for my name and I couldn’t believe that I passed the CPALE. I burst into tears that night because I already have those three-letter title after my name. Cliche as it may sound pero ang sarap pala talaga sa feeling na gigisingin mo ang parents mo at sasabihing “CPA na po ako”.
Sa wakas nakarating na ako sa aking destinasyon. Pero alam kong may mga mas malalaking alon at malalakas na bagyo pa akong kakaharapin sa aking patuloy na paglalakbay sa malawak na karagatan.
Before ending this one, let me tell you something… when I was a kid and since high school one of my greatest dream is to be seen on national TV as a reporter like Kara David and Mariz Umali. I never imagined myself as an Accountant. Sometimes life doesn’t give you what you want not because you don’t deserve it, but because it is not what you need and His plans are better than you could ever imagine.
Believe in Him, believe in yourself, study wise, pray hard… you’re another step closer to your dream.
