Patunay si Kyle Clouie Sescon Moseños, 22, na kahit hindi nasunod ang kanyang pangarap ay maaari pa ring magtagumpay sa napiling daan na tatahakin.
Taga-Parañaque City si Kyle, na ang pangarap ay maging isang medical technologist.
Pero dahil hindi financially stable ang kanilang pamilya, pagka-graduate sa high school ay kumuha siya ng Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering sa Polytechnic University of the Philippines–Taguig.
Pagbabahagi ni Kyle sa PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last March 11, 2023 via Facebook Messenger, isang welder ang kanyang ama, at housewife ang kanyang ina.
Panganay siya sa limang magkakapatid.
Gusto ng kanyang ama na maging engineer siya.
Dahil sa kanilang pinansiyal na kalagayan, ani Kyle, “I decided to follow what my father wants me to become.
“I chose mechanical engineering, not only because I’m good in mathematics and science, but because I’m also interested in machines.”
Nagtapos siya bilang cum laude noong September 16, 2022, at nakakuha ng mataas na scores sa dalawang board exams.
Top 6 siya sa August 2022 Certified Plant Mechanic Licensure Examination (CPMLE), at may rating na 87.30 percent. Ang CPMLE ay kinukuha ng mga graduating mechanical engineering students.
Top 7 naman siya sa February 2023 Mechanical Engineering Licensure Examination, at may rating na 92.90 percent.

“HINDI GA-GRADUATE IYAN”
Pero bago niya na-unlock ang mga achievements ay maraming pagsubok na hinarap si Kyle.
Aniya, “My college life was a very tough journey. Sobrang hirap ng mechanical engineering.”
Pangunahing problema niya noon ang panggastos.
“I don’t have enough money and resources, such as a laptop, computer, Internet connectivity, and high-tech gadgets to maximize my potential as a student.
“That’s why I’m always at the library to read and learn.”
Nagpapasalamat naman siya na may isang foundation na nag-offer sa kanya ng scholarship kaya nakapagtapos siya.

Naalala pa ni Kyle na may mga tao noon na hinusgahan ang kanyang kakayahan, at sinabihan siya ng, “Pogi lang iyan, pero hindi ga-graduate iyan.”
HURDLES SOLVED DURING BOARD EXAM
Nang kukuha na si Kyle ng mechanical engineering licensure examination, nahirapan siyang mag-decide kung ano ang dapat niyang pag-aralan at anong topics ang uunahin.
“It’s hard for me to decide because I have to review everything I studied in my four-year degree course in just five to six months."
At tulad noong nag-aaral pa siya, kulang din siya sa resources at budget.
“I can’t afford to rent a dormitory, and that’s why I chose to enroll in a review center and decided to take a weekend class schedule.”
Ang kanyang review schedule ay 15 oras. Pabor naman ito sa kanya dahil dalawang beses lang siyang nabiyahe mula Parañaque City to Manila kada linggo.
“This helped me not to spend too much money, time, and effort.”
At sa tanong kung nahirapan siya sa exam, sagot ni Kyle, “To be honest, the mechanical engineering licensure examination is not that hard because I prepared for it.
“I worked hard for it to obtain my dream license.
“I studied everything that I need for me to become confident on the day of the examination.
“And after the examination, I’m confident that I passed although the result was not yet released.”

PANGARAP TALAGANG MAGING TOPNOTCHER
Aminado naman si Kyle na nangarap siyang maging topnotcher.
Kuwento niya, “Yes, I aspired to become a board topnotcher. I have three main reasons why.
“First, it will give me an opportunity to teach. I want to teach because I want to share my knowledge with other people, especially aspiring mechanical engineers, and with that, I dreamed to become a part-time instructor.
“Second, it may help me to have a better career someday.
“And lastly, as a payback to Him who always guides me, to my family, friends, and other people who believed, prayed, and supported me.”
Bagaman at confident sa kanyang performance sa board exam, hindi pa rin makapaniwala si Kyle na topnotcher siya.
“I’m so glad and grateful. The first thing that I did is telling my family that I did not just pass, but I actually topped the licensure exam.
“And then I suddenly cried because all the hard work, sleepless nights, and sacrifices are really worth it. I thanked God for everything.”

Sa Diyos unang inialay ni Kyle ang tagumpay.
“For always providing me enough strength and courage. Without Him, I won’t be able to do this.
“Second, to my family, who always believes in me that I can do this and always provides me with everything that I need to prepare for the licensure exam.
“Also, to my friends, and to other people who believed, prayed, and supported me on this journey.”
Plano ni Kyle na mas hasain pa ang kanyang industry and technical experience bilang mechanical engineer.
“I will also apply to a university as a part-time mechanical engineering instructor.”
Ang payo niya sa mga kabataang gusto ring maging mechanical engineer, “It takes a lot of time and effort. It’s really difficult to become an engineer, but always do your best and trust God for your plans.
“Always remember that great things come from hard work and perseverance.”
