Recently, while on his way to a delivery, Ax had to stop because he had to attend his online class. He parked his motorcycle somewhere in Sucat, Parañaque City. He was so busy on his phone that he caught the attention of a fellow delivery service rider, Christian Lorenz Nuñez.

Curious to see the other GrabFood rider so serious on his phone (but definitely not playing online games), Christian asked what he was doing. He was greatly surprised to learn that Ax was actually doing online classes.

Kaya pala pumarada si paps kasi need niya umattend ng online class. Sana matupad mo ‘yung mga pangarap mo,” Christian wrote.

Naaawa rin ako kasi may delivery pa siya tapos biglang may online class siyang kailangang attendan.

Christian hopes that his post would inspire many students out there to try their best because working students like Ax are facing extra challenges so they can attend school.

It turned out that Ax had to work extra hard because his parents could not afford to send him to school on their own.

Pinili ko pong magtrabaho para makatulong sa family ko lalo na ngayong panahon, hindi po ako pwedeng huminto sa pagtatrabaho at sa pag-aaral dahil yung papa ko po ay na-stroke at wala nang katuwang ang mama ko sa gastusin namin sa araw-araw,” Ax explained.

Thankfully, his job lets him work on a flexible schedule so he could continue working to support his studies.
