MANILA – Michael Prince Del Rosario, a high school dropout and top 1 in the recently released results of March 2016 LET Secondary Level became viral after Carl Balita congratulated him with caption as quoted,
“He was a RAGNAROK addict. Did not go to high School because of this. Took the Alternative Learning System to qualify to college. Finished Nursing and topped the nursing board (#8 with Board RAting of 85%). Now he is #1 in the Licensure Exam for Teachers (92%)!”

He was also interviewed in DZMM, the day after the results were released. He said that he didn’t graduated as valedictorian and even didn’t managed to finish high school due to addiction with online game named ‘Ragnarok’. As quoted,
Hindi po ako grumaduate ng valedictorian, hindi nga po ako grumaduate ng high school.
He also added that due this addiction, he dropped out without telling his mother.
Hindi na po talaga ako pumapasok, sobrang lala po ng ka-addict-an to the point na wala na po. Nag-drop-out ako tapos ang masama pa niyan hindi ko kayang sabihin kina Mama, tinago ko po muna
He just then realized that his batch-mates are ready to graduate, already have good plans for their future and dreams for their family. So he then thought about his.
“Unti-unti ko na pong nakikita na pa-graduate na po ‘yung mga ka-batch ko, na ang ganda-ganda na ng plano nilang mag-college, na ang sarap ng mga dreams nila for their family. Sa isip ko, pa’no ako? Pa’no ko ibibigay ‘yun sa family ko?” said del Rosario.
He also said that he really has plans to be a topnotcher. This is to fulfill the dream of his mother to be interviewed in television.
“Opo, kasi po pangarap ko po talagang ma-interview po ‘yung nanay ko sa TV. Sabi ko para mangyari ‘yun kailangan number one ako, so ayun po natupad na po ‘yung pangarap niya kanina. Tuwang-tuwa siya,”
When asked about his plans after topping the licensure exam, Del Rosario said that he will teach in a public secondary school for him to share his experiences on how he managed to stand up after all his failures.
“Para mai-share ko naman ‘yung experience ko noong high school ako, para marami ring maging katulad ko na noong una nadapa, noong una nagkamali, noong una parang wala nang pupuntahan, pero nakakabangon at nakakabangon basta may pangarap.”
In a post from the same page, Michael inspired everyone with his message. As quoted,
“Passing the board exam is HARDWORK. Topping it is PASSION. Topping it twice? It’s DESTINY. CBRC taught me the perfect formula in acing the boards: CHOOSE your dream. BELIEVE in God. REVIEW well. CLAIM it!”
