In real life, a good, honorable job is not about the glamorous titles. It's often about the hard work and integrity that you present on the job, regardless of what field it may be.

Marga Santiago Suobiron, a Dentistry graduate from Iloilo Doctors College, is proud of having a tricycle driver and a farmer for a father. In her Facebook post dated July 5, 2020, Marga shared how her dad would wake up early in the morning to start working in their farm before dropping her and her sister off at school and proceeding to make rounds as a tricycle driver. "Kada kita niya sa pasada nilalagay niya yung tig 5-peso coins sa ibabaw ng drawer. Iniipon niya," she shares. "Then 'pag may babayaran sa school doon siya kumukuha. Minsan hihingi ako 500, 1k, 5k, [hanggang] sa humingi ako one time ng 20k pambili ng materials ko sa school."

"Nang dahil sa TRICYCLE DRIVER kong tatay nakagraduate ako ng, elementary, high school, college, at naging dentista. Naka graduate ang kapatid ko ng Pharmacy dahil sa tatay kong 'TRICYCLE DRIVER LANG.'

"I am not giving all the credits to my father sa paggastos sa'min sa pag-aaral. Nandiyan ang mama ko, tita ko, pinsan ko na tumulong din sa'min. Pero alam ko yung hirap ng tatay ko kakapamasada. Mainit, maulan, may bagyo o wala, alam ko ang hirap ng isang tricycle driver. Alam ko kasi nakikita ko ang tatay ko."

She also shared that her parents were able to put her sister--who just graduated with a Pharmacy degree--through college, too.

Marga decided to share her story on social media after an influencer called Buknoy Glamur went viral for making a remark about tricycle drivers, claiming that people who take up such jobs, "ay walang mararating."
