VIRAL: Parents surprised, overjoyed to learn that son will graduate in May

by | News

An unsuspecting couple thought their son would not graduate after he failed one of his subjects. They were, therefore, surprised when he told them he will be graduating next month.

Rofherson Canones Suzon shared on Facebook the emotional reaction of his parents after he told them about his graduation.

“I surprised my parents na gagrad ako this May 2018. Akala nila di ako gagraduate on time because i failed one subject last semester. But, still, God is amazing,” his post read.

Suzon, a student at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, took up 11 subjects during his final semester just to be able to qualify for graduation this year.

After Suzon handed them his certificate for candidacy for graduation, Suzon’s mother cried while his father rushed to hug him in joy and surprise.

Suzon said he wants to inspire other students to never give up, whether their mission to graduate this semester is a success or a failure.
