Fish Vendor Sends Son To Medical School Despite Meager Earnings




  • A single mother wanted to make sure that her son would live a better life.
  • Unfortunately, her work as a fish vendor could barely pay for her child’s education.
  • Nevertheless, she worked hard and managed to send her son to medical school.

A mother will always do anything for her child. This is why a simple fish vendor made sure that her son would get the best education possible. The single mom managed to send her boy to medical school despite her meager earnings.

Nanita Ronquillo is a fish vendor in the Philippines who works at the market every day. Although the 55-year-old mom only earns a small amount on a daily basis, she didn’t let it stop her from helping her son John Nico Ronquillo from achieving his dreams. Nanita worked hard from the wee hours of the morning until late at night so she could afford to send her boy to medical school.

Nanita would spend more than 12 hours selling fish to pay for her son’s education.

There is little doubt that Nanita has lived a difficult life. She had left her husband after she found out that he was cheating on her and already had a new family. Nevertheless, she never gave up on John Nico, who aspired to be a doctor. But in order for her son to get a better life, Nanita had to work long hours just to earn enough to pay for his education.

Nanita typically leaves the house at 5:00 AM daily to sell fish at the local market. She would keep working as late as 6:00 PM in order to make enough to pay for her son’s tuition fees. Despite her hard work, there were times that John Nico had to quit school because they couldn’t save enough money.

Nanita is now the proud mother of a young doctor.

Luckily, Nanita’s hard work all paid off. John Nico graduated from medical school although it took him six years to finish a four-year course. She certainly is proof that hard work and dedication will eventually help you achieve your dreams.
