A 12th grade Humanities and Social Sciences (HUMSS) student who's interested in pursuing law in the future decided to reach out to Atty. Chel Diokno for some much-appreciated career advice, and to his surprise, the human rights lawyer actually responded. 

A now-viral Facebook post from the page Philippine Jurisprudence Official shared the letter of Atty. Diokno to 12th grade HUMSS student Hans Kasilag. Hans is an avid fan of the lawyer and educator. As one of his inspirations for pursuing law in the future, Hans decided to contact Atty. Diokno to ask for his advice to aspiring lawyers like him. "I emailed him on September 1 and got a reply from his EA, Ms. Rina Bello, six days later, acknowledging my email. And two days later, September 9, at exactly 12:59 p.m., the email containing Atty. Chel's letter came into my inbox," shares Hans in an online conversation with Candy.

In his e-mail response, Atty. Diokno expressed his excitement about Hans' determination to pursue the profession. "Let me say how happy I am to see that you're not just dreaming to become a lawyer--you're actually working towards our dream by learning more about the profession even this early."
