"Shoot for the moon", says Cong. Mark Villar

On the 15th day of March during the 11th Commencement Exercises of the Nueva Vizcaya State University, Congressman Mark Villar was invited as the guest speaker representing his mother, Sen. Cynthia Villar. He was welcomed by University President Florentina Dumlao, Congressman Carlos Padilla and Governor Ruth Raña Padilla.

Villar was determined and willing to deliver his speech to the graduates that in spite of some problems he encountered during his travel, Villar still pushed through with the engagement.

“Education is the key for not only our personal development but also for the development of our country. Kung aayusin natin ang ating mga eskwelahan, maaayos din natin ang ating bansa, kaya naniniwala po kami na kaya natin yan,” this was statement given by Villar during his speech that promotes his family’s advocacy in education.

And in line with the Villars’ advocacies, the congressman also shared the life story of his father ( Sen. Manny Villar ), also promoting their advocacy on entrepreneurship.

“Nung nagsimula si Papa sa negosyo sa housing, ang minimithi niya talaga ay maging Largest Housing Developer ng Pilipinas, and it took him 20 to 30 years bago siya nakarating dyan, and eventually he was able to become one,” Villar said.

From that shared experience of the congressman’s father, Villar encouraged the graduates to set their goals as high as they possibly can and that every day; they have to make sure that they do something to bring them closer to their goals.

“Shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you still fall upon the stars,” as Villar ended his speech wishing the graduates the best in life. #GP
