“Hindi malalasap ang tamis ng tagumpay kung hindi paghihirapan.” former honey collector Edrian Bangngayen of Mabungtot, Sal-lapadan challenges his fellow youth. After graduating with honors from high school, Edrian will now pursue a seaman course.

During his elementary days, Edrian and his siblings collected honey and wild orchids to help their farmer parents Chiquito and Feliciana Banggayen pay for school fees. In 2014, he was featured in GMA 7’s I-Witness documentary and became a scholar of Kara David’s Project Malasakit.

Edrian encourages his fellow youth to continue chasing their dreams despite the trials in life.
