A fishball vendor has earned admiration and praises from netizens after he successfully sent all his four children to college all by himself.
The inspiring story of the fishball vendor was recently shared by his youngest daughter, who was the last one among her four siblings to graduate from college thanks to their father’s fishball business.
In a heartwarming post written by Girlie Versoza, she described her experience being laughed at when she and her siblings were younger because of their father’s job.

“I can not forget those people who told us that ‘It’s just a child of fishball vendor,” Girlie wrote.
She added that not many kids wanted to be friends with them “because they were not on the same level” as other kids from affluent families.
In spite of that, she just brushed it off as her father told her to be kind to others.
“Daughter, you don’t have to be ashamed of yourself. Don’t force yourself to befriend others, just be kind,” she continued.
Thanks to the words of wisdom that her father told her, Girlie ignored those who mocked her.
After all, everything that her father sold was so good and delicious!
Even when she went to high school, she was still being teased for being the daughter of a fishball vendor.
However, she never felt ashamed of her father’s job and found friends who accepted her for who she was.
When she further her studies in college, it got even more difficult as the college fees were costly.
But then, all of her siblings would accompany their father to help him sell at town fairs, graduations, pageants, and concerts.
Not only did they manage to sell everything but it was also a great time for them to bond with each other!
Now that Girlie has finally graduated from college, she is proud to share with everyone that it was because of her father’s fishball business that she and her siblings got to graduate from college.
A big congratulations to Girlie and her hardworking father!
