Bagong laptop, scholarship, at workshop, handog ng Iba ‘Yan kina Philip at Maricel!

Philip and Maricel are both totally blind. On the 6th episode of Iba Yan, the couple shared their stories and struggles on how they deal with being visually impaired growing up.

Through the help of a certain foundation for the blind, Maricel learned some skills that she can use for a living despite her disability. The couple is working as massage therapists but because of the pandemic that we are facing right now, they sadly can’t do it for the time being.

When asked what else are they planning to do to make a living amid the pandemic, Philip shared his plans on pursuing his music and writing his own. Maricel on the other hand has an online job as an audio transcriptionist.

For the past 5 episodes, Iba Yan never failed to surprise the families they feature and visit. For this episode, the team gave a special surprise to Philip; an impromptu jamming with his favorite singer Mr. Rey Valera.

Aside from this, the team also gifted a brand new laptop to Maricel for her online job and a scholarship for a vocational training for medical transcriptioning from TESDA, NCR! To support his passion for music, the team enlisted Philip in a songwriting workshop from Vehnee Saturno Music Corporation!

It is very evident how Phillip and Maricel give importance to education and because of this, team Iba Yan decided to give them something that will support their children’s education.

Their youngest daughter Jazhmin was awarded an scholarship for any 4-year course of her choice through the help of STI College. Jazhmin will also receive financial assistance until highschool from Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano. Bantay Bata 163 also awarded a scholarship assistance to their eldest daughter for SY 2020-2021!
