With the school calendars shifting, Facebook graduation posts are flooding social media from all over. Likewise, social media users couldn’t hide their admiration towards a mother who stepped onto the graduation stage not only once but twice in a row, after her twin daughters both clinched distinctions.
Yesterday, twin sisters Bernise and Denise Catuncan both received their diplomas after finishing BS Accountancy in Batangas State University. Not only did they finish on time, they also graduated summa cum laude.
But achieving such recognition did not come easy for the two and their single-mom, Bernadita.
When their father left this world a couple years ago, Bernadita swore to her five children that she will do whatever it takes to give them a bright future.
“Sinabi ko, ‘I’m gonna find a way to raise you all.’”
Thankfully, her sacrifices didn’t go unnoticed and were matched by the twins’ own. It turns out that Bernise and Denise both had to give up their dreams of becoming an architect and a chemical engineer, since both courses are costly. Also, to further lessen their mom’s financial burden, they opted to apply for scholarship programs.

“Sobrang hirap po talaga, dumadating po kami sa point na mangungutang tapos ‘yon, as in umaasa po kami sa scholarship,“
The two also dedicated their achievements to their late father whom they miss dearly.
Now Bernise and Denise will be preparing for the CPA board exam this coming October.
Many social media users commended the young ladies and their proud mom. Read some of their comments below:
