During my first visit to meet my Rose in the Philippines, she asked me if I could be her escort during her graduation day for her master's degree. It was an honor so I said yes. I think most of the people in her work were shocked because she did not tell anyone that she has a foreigner boyfriend.
I am so proud of my wife for her resiliency and perseverance in attaining her education. Wish I have that drive when I was younger.
