that's my dad


I am not sure if I have mentioned in any of my posts that my father is a professional mechanical engineer and that he works at a sugar milling company. Career-wise, he actually had humble beginnings where he started from a mere rank and file employee who works hands-on with bearings,  vise accessories and other industrial supplies and equipment that I am not familiar with, until he got promoted to a supervisory position. Today, even when he is already past the age of retirement, he is still working, although now I heard he is already holding a consultancy position (sort of). I am proud of my dad's achievements especially that I am aware that he worked really hard to earn his title. He's not from a well-to-do family; so, he had to work his way to get to college. I remembered even when he already got promoted in supervisory level, he's still willing to do manual labor if he deemed it necessary. He also has a lot of friends at work and this is because he didn't forget where he came from. Definitely, he knew how to keep his feet on the ground!

You would know who will be successful when they age, those who had a hard life. During those times they are the ones who strive to have a better life. Congratulations for having a dad who's humble and I bet he taught you this value too. :)

Looks like you are really proud of your dad. I think this only shows how education is important. Like in his case, he started so low but was able to go up in his career because of his degree.
