Roselle Ambubuyog is blind yet pursued her education and graduated valedictorian with a BS in Mathematics summa cum laude from a top university.
Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth are true stories of Filipinos from all walks of life who chose to make a difference. There are currently 22 titles in this inspirational series.
ALEXINE: I was able to interview Roselle for a school paper in college, she was confident and seemingly unencumbered by her lack of vision. She definitely did a lot better than me in school! This series won't have the usual heroic stories you read online, this is a meatier selection which won't get the same viral interest. I highly recommend this entire series for the family.
