A reward is something that could motivate a person, especially if it is something they really love and usually students are the ones who receive a reward after trying their best to attain high grades.
A Facebook user, Mary Joy Piquero, shared a photo of her card and 1,100 in peso bills with a caption of her short conversation with her eldest brother.
Kuya: compute-in mo lahat ng grades mo sa final grade.
Thankkk Youu, kuyaaaa luuvvyouuu!
Unexpectedly, the money was the reward from her eldest brother for being an honor student.
Mary Joy Piquerro is a grade 9 student of Tinejeros National High School and lives in Malabon. There are four siblings and Mary is the youngest among the siblings. Her brother, named Mark Piquerro, happens to be eldest who rewarded her with the money. Currently, he is working as a Quality Insurance Associate at Bellavita.
In our interview with Mary via FB messenger, she said that all she thought was that her brother was just joking upon giving her the money because she didn’t even expect any reward.
It all started one morning in their residence when her mother and brother were having a conversation about her grades. Then suddenly, his brother asked her to sum up all her grades in her final rating. With her obedience, she just computed the grades and didn’t have any idea what his brother was up to. Then after adding her final grades, she wrote it in a piece of paper the total, which is 1,089. To her surprise, her brother gave the money equivalent to her total final grade summation which made her so happy.
Mary recalled the time her mother called her attention when her 3rd grading grade did not meet the qualification of an honor student and she encouraged Mary to do better with her grades. So Mary promised her mother to cope up with her grades as she witnessed how she tried her best to be back in the honor roll.
With perseverance, Mary achieved her goal by ending the school year as an honor student and receiving an award is what she deserved for the hard work and perseverance she gave to her studies.
