Board exams are literally every professional’s “new door” to their career. For professions that require a board or bar exam, these are taken seriously by graduates. They enter countless of review sessions, countless sleepless nights just to refresh their minds and pass the test.
Netizens are expressing their utmost praise for this young woman from Sultan Kudarat for passing the recent LET exams for teachers without undergoing a proper review course.
What inspires the netizens is that this woman named Ellen Vida Santos, did not deliberately forego undergoing a proper review course prior her exams.
In an unfortunate event, Ellen met an accident and underwent an operation in her head that caused her to become comatose. She was in a coma for 10 days and was confined in the hospital for over a month.
Ellen was determined to reach her dreams and become a licensed teacher. She did not let the unfortunate trial that happened to her stop her from reaching her goals.
More than a month after being discharged from the hospital, she took up the LET exams. She was not able to attend the review because of what happened but she did try her luck in the exams. She surrendered her fate to the Lord and took the exam.
Over 2 months after the exam, Ellen was surprised to see her named amongst the examinees who passed the exams.

People couldn’t help but be in awe of the determination and inspiration that Ellen brought by her story.
What is LET?
In the Philippines, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), conducts a Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET) to determine and gauge the ability of the college graduates to teach in school and pursue their dreams as a teacher.
The current LET was conducted last September 2017 and the results were released by November.

Caught On Cam: House That Was Once Used As A Hospital Has Uninvited Guests
It’s easy to say that there is a ghost or something paranormal in your home. Sometimes when you feel something, or you “know” that there is something in your house, no one will believe you even if you told them.
This is why a lot of people are setting up cameras to capture what it is that has been bothering them.
In Kent, an eerie moment was caught in that camera that was originally set up to watch over the family’s two French bulldogs.
The house in which the ghost was caught was a Grade II listed building that was once used as a hospital. The family who is living there is now convinced that their house was haunted and that they are sharing it with uninvited guests.
While the family was sleeping, the camera caught a misty figure that came through the door at the back. The owner was wondering what it was because the door where it came from was a private garden.
“Being a skeptic I was thinking of what else it could be but our living room backs onto a private garden so there was very little it could be.”
It appeared to glide from the door to the adjacent room, away from the camera’s view.
But only to return from the bottom of the screen to glide around the living room again.
The family shared that there were also times that one of their dogs would growl without apparent reason.
“On the run-up to the footage our youngest dog kept staring into our hallway and on a couple of occasions growled but we just dismissed this and thought he was still settling in.”
The owner of the house, Stephen Lee, did not believe at first, but after having a couple of eerie things happen after they discovered the video, he is now ready to accept that it could be something supernatural.
“Since the footage we’ve had a couple of eerie things happen – especially since we’ve put up the Christmas tree where lights have flickered on and off consecutively.”

Hardworking Man Only had Php20 Bills in Savings to Buy Shoes, Receives Help from Kindhearted Woman
A hardworking man who went to a World Balance outlet at a mall to buy shoes from his savings received much-needed help from a kind-hearted customer who realized he should be rewarded for his efforts.
In a post that has since gone viral on Facebook, a store associate at World Balance shared the heartwarming story.
According to Caloy Pineda, the man who was later identified as Kuya Rexel, entered their store and began choosing from the shoes on sale. He didn’t look rich but the store associates readily assisted him, anyway.
Caloy described him as an obviously hardworking man who seemed really excited to finally buy a pair of new shoes from his hard-earned money. Finally, Kuya Rexel settled for a pair worth Php1,200 ($23.80).
While the staff prepared the shoes he chose, he took out his money and began to count it on the bench. He had a bunch of money, all Php20 bills ($0.40). It was obvious that the money came from his savings as many were still folded up.
It was at this point that another customer, a woman who goes by the name Lilliam Matteo Quiat on Facebook, went closer and began asking Kuya Rexel random questions like where he was working. She praised him for being hardworking and offered to give him some cash so he could choose another pair that he would really like to have.
Kuya Rexel was hesitant as he didn’t want to take her money but she insisted. After some coaxing, Kuya Rexel finally chose another pair he was eyeing; it costs Php1,799 ($35.65). The woman gave the store associates Php500 ($9.90) and went away without telling them her name.
But according to Caloy, he was able to take some photos and got her name because she reserved a pair of shoes at the store. She would have remained anonymous and certainly didn’t give the money for praise but she was later happy to hear that the story became an inspiration to many after it went viral.
Teen Taking A Selfie Left Severely Injured By Train That Rushed Past Behind Her
It has long been established that selfies can be dangerous. Especially if you become addicted to it that you forget to be careful about your surroundings, in your attempts to shoot the perfect selfie.
May we remind you about the most dangerous selfies that have been posted? Or do you want to read about the man who lost his life because he wanted a selfie with a walrus? Or what about the guy who accidentally killed himself because he wanted a selfie with an unpinned grenade? See, the list is endless.
Adding to that list is this young woman from Indonesia who were taking photos with her friends near the train tracks in Purworejo on December 6.
Ely Hayati, 16, and her friends stopped by the railway track while they were having a stroll along it. They decided to take a selfie, with the girl in front holding a selfie stick when a train rushes past behind them.
Not mindful of the possible danger, the teen was thrown forward for a few meters from where she was by the force of the train. Causing her to bump her head into the concrete slab.
She suffered heavy bleeding and her friends immediately asked for help from the residents around the area.
Hayati was quickly rushed to the hospital where she underwent an emergency surgery in order to stop her bleeding.
Although she is still in the ICU, World of Buzz, it is lucky that she survived the incident and nothing more tragic happened to the girl from South China who decided to take a selfie with an upcoming train who seconds later, eventually killed her on the stop.
The girls managed to take photos of the incident, one while Hayati was still upright and another one where she was already down and have probably already hit her head.
May this incident serve as a warning to those who are taking their selfies. Remember that no matter how “cool” your selfie is, it won’t matter much if you are not alive and well.
