“Life has been difficult, mostly because I have been too giving and kind and extremely tolerant of others. But I have so much more to be thankful for. I am lucky to have found friends who in themselves are priceless.” These are the words of Mr. JDann Yosoya from Candoni, CCS Trainee Batch 1 of NOLITC.
“Jordan” as what his friends call him is a hard working young man. At first glance you will have an impression that he is a happy go lucky type of person. But beneath that physical impression this young man has been through tough times. His story begun when he was still a young boy at the age of 9 selling caramelized banana chips in the street just to make ends meet. He became both brother and head of the family to his family. His father abandoned them when he was still a toddler and the mere fact he didn’t t have any slightest recognition of his father’s physical features. When he finished high school he became a working scholar at West Negros University but he wasn’t able to finish due to financial constraint in the family therefore he needed to find a job . All these were the challenges he had to face while growing up but this didn’t stop him from reaching his goal in life which was to earn and help his family.
He heard about the training for a work scholarship program for call center agents at Negros Occidental Language and Information Technology Center. He applied and passed all the tests with flying colors. He underwent training for 3 months and he was very happy and satisfied with his acquisition of knowledge. The extended training enabled him to land a good job at Transcom as Call Center Agent. Today he is grateful and he misses all the people behind NOLITC. A piece of advice from Jdann to people who struggles with life’s challenges, “THAT’S LIFE! We face our problems and respond to them positively, and refuse to give in to panic, bitterness, or self-pity.”
