ZEDRIC ZARAGOZA, ito ang aking buong pangalan na inilagay ko bilang tatak ng aking mga tsinelas na abaca. Isa itong maliit na brand na nakikipag banggaan sa malalaking pangalan sa industriya ng mga sapatos. Sabi nga ni Kris Aquino kung may babanggain ka dapat yung pader para hindi nakakahiya kapag natalo ka,” he explained.

He explained that he’s sharing his story to inspire other people, particular young people who are poor because he grew up in a poor family. It was his goal to take his family out of poverty – and that made him strive harder to reach for his dreams.

Nais ko lamang sabihin sa mga kabataan ngayon na tulad ko na hindi kasalanan ng magulang natin na pinanganak tayong salat sa buhay. Sapagkat kung ano mang mayroon ang magulang natin binibigay nila lahat sa atin hanggang sa wala ng matira sa kanila, ganun kasi ang magulang,” he wrote.

Ako ay nangangarap na sana magkaroon ng maliit na marka ang aking mga abaca sa industriya ng mga sapatos. Lagi kong sinasabi sa sarili ko na darating ang araw na maisusuot din ng mga kilalang tao at personalidad ang aking mga abaca. At hihintayin ko ang araw na iyon. In God’s perfect time.
