Exemplary Life of Cayetano Arellano and Florentino Cayco Sr. Countless people have discontinued education due to financial difficulties and other factors influencing their decision to stop and work. And this is our reality, and we have no power over it. However, Florentino Cayco, Sr., and Cayetano Arellano shows that deprivation may also be used as motivation to continue studying. As I read the exemplary life of Cayetano Arellano and Florentino Cayco Sr., I realize that we are the only hindrance to achieving our dreams. Instead of using every time we have to learn and read, we let our lethargy rule our lives, and time passes without doing anything. Mr. Cayco Sr.'s attitude is something that every youth must possess, and it may be very stressful, but life is not always easy. Mr. Cayco and Mr. Arellano's unceasing hard work and dedication resulted in Arellano University, which was constructed with an insatiable hunger for knowledge, a desire for truth, and a respect for academic independence. Arellano University's purpose was to foster an intellectual climate conducive to debate and discourse, directed only by the rights and best interests of its students and employees. I may be new to this university, but I chose it not because of the budget-friendly tuition but because of the positive comments I received on various social media platforms. As an aspiring Accountant, one of the most important elements I evaluate when selecting a college is the teaching style and environment of the university where I'll spend four years. And this instution proved that this was worth choosing for.
