Topping the Board Examination

I was watching ABS-CBN News Bandila when the successful bar examinees were flashed on the screen complete with interviews. It was reminiscent when I passed and top the PEE Board examination.

I have been waiting for the results of the board examination for the past weeks, when I woke up that morning, I was hoping to finally see the results. I went to the news stand to buy the Sunday edition of Manila Bulletin. When I saw on the front page that the Electrical Engineers board examinations results were already released, my heart beat pounded faster. It was due to excitement and nervousness.

I have been hoping to become a PEE to be able to perform the full scope of Electrical Engineering profession. In the Philippines, only a PEE is allowed to practice full scope of Electrical Engineering.

To add more suspense, I did not read the articles details yet. I paid for the paper and upon leaving the counter, I nervously continued reading the article and saw my name as number 1. Unknowingly, I jumped off and shouted, “YES!”.

The people around me might have been wondering why, but I did really. I was in Cloud 9 then. Passing the PEE board examinations was a jump start of my professional career. I owed it to my persistence and diligence in preparing for the examinations. Now, I am reaping the fruit of my hard works.
