Meet the poor boy from Tondo who topped PNPA graduating class of 2019

Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray was not wrong when she said that it is not poverty that kills a child’s dream, as this poor boy from Tondo was able to reach his goals despite life’s challenges.

To put it simple, Cadet Jervis Allen Ramos, 24, had a difficult life. He lived in a small single-bedroom house in Tondo wherein he lived with his mother and two other siblings, reported Inquirer.net.

Ramos lost his father, who used to work as a jeepney driver, at the young age of 13. Since then, his mother Priscila has resorted to selling home-cooked spaghetti and pancit palabok on the streets to make ends meet.

However, this did not stop him from achieving great academic feats in life. Later this month, Ramos will be graduating the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA).

What’s more impressive is that he topped this year’s graduating class which is composed of 200 other members of the Sansiklab Class, or the Sandigan ng Mamamayan na may Sigasig na Itaguyod ang Kapayapaan at Ipaglaban ang Bayan.

But even before he entered PNPA, he already earned a degree on Criminology from Unibersidad de Manila and ranked third in the Criminologist Board Exam in October 2014.

Ramos said that he has also faced some troubles as a student but his family’s situation became his motivation to achieve his academic goals.

He also said that he would like to have a career in the field of law enforcement since it was his father who had a dream of becoming a policeman and this dream was something that ha has passed down and instilled in him.

Ramos said that the next items on his bucketlist is to buy his mother a house and to travel the country with his family.
