How fast time flies! Aly Medalla meets recipient of dad’s scholarship at wedding
Quezon City Councilor Aly Medalla was pleasantly surprised to meet at a recent mass wedding a woman who was able to graduate from college because of her father, former councilor Ramon Medalla.
In a Facebook post, Medalla said knowing that the bride finished her studies because of her father made the wedding at Barangay Payatas even more special.
“Isa sa mga bride, si Ma. Theresa B. Abarrientos, ay scholar pala na nagtapos ng kolehiyo sa tulong sa scholarship program ni Coun. Toto Medalla! Ngayon, kami naman ang magkakasal sa kanila ng kanyang asawa,” she shared.
“Nakakatuwang maging bahagi ng kanyang personal growth: una sa edukasyon, ngayon naman sa pagsisimula at pagbuo ng kanyang pamilya,” Medalla added.
The councilor said the knowledge that she helps change people’s lives is one of the reasons why she chose to be in public service.
