Dreams don’t have expiration dates.

A 71-year-old woman in Taytay is pursuing a college eduction to fulfill her dream of becoming a social worker, and Taytay Councilor Kyle Gacula is very impressed with her.

In a Facebook post, Gacula lauded septuagenarian Teresita Arca for enrolling in ICCT Colleges to get a degree.

Gacula said Arca had long wanted to be a social worker, and her dream has not left her especially after seeing first hand the problems of the community as a barangay worker.

She decided to go back to school to be better able to help the people, he said.

She is proof that as long as you have the heart and the dedication, you can overcome challenges and accomplish anything.

She is a role model!

“Tunay ngang hindi hadlang ang edad sa pagkamit ng pangarap. Ipinamalas yan ng pinakamatandang iskolar ng bayan natin sa Taytay na si Nanay Teresita Arca.

Sa edad na 71 taong gulang, kasalukuyang nag-aaral si Nanay Teresita sa ICCT Colleges Cainta upang ipagpatuloy ang kanyang pangarap na maging social worker.

Noong kabataan pa niya ay ginusto nang maging social worker ni Nanay Teresita.

Ngayong nagtatrabaho siya sa barangay para sa lupon, mas nakita niya ang mga problemang kinakaharap ng ating mga kababayan. Kaya naman nakita niya ang pagbabalik-eskwela bilang paraan na mas pagbutihin pa ang kanyang paglilingkod sa ating bayan.

Patunay si Nanay Teresita na basta may puso at determinasyong mapagtagumpayan ang mga hamon sa buhay, lahat #kayanggawin. Saludo po kami sayo!” Gacula posted.
