Romnick Blanco didn’t let poverty to succeed. His hard work and persistence paved a way to a great opportunity.
Dear Friends of GreenEarth:
We will praise the LORD with all of our hearts, we will tell of His wonderful deeds! -…
Blanco, a native of Sierra Madre and the son of farmers, started taking English and Computer literacy education in 2011 as a scholar of GreenEarth Heritage Foundation. During those times, he braved bridgeless rivers in order to attend classes.
Through the mentorship, Romnick qualified for a scholarship at the International School of Manila (ISM) in 2012. After five years, he graduated and offered four scholarships for his college education – Harvard College, the King Scholarship of Dartmouth College, the Freeman-Asian Scholarship of Wesleyan University and New York University – he chose Harvard.
“This is an honor and momentous occasion for us all who have been bound together by our mission/ vision,” the organization said.
“For those among you who have supported our foundation in many ways, this is a day of rejoicing. Together, we are about to send a farmer’s child to Harvard. We cannot thank you enough for your invaluable partnership,” it added.
