Among the 83,000 who passed the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) was a sad yet inspiring story of Jessa Ganigan, who died a day after the release of LET results.

Jessa Bustinera Ganigan was an aspiring teacher from La Union. She was born and raised as the eldest child of Angelo and Melody Ganigan.

The family was leading a provincial life as her parents were just a simple farmer and housewife.

It was on June 2018, while Jessa was focusing on review for the exams when she was diagnosed with Chronic Renal Failure Stage 5 and was admitted to the hospital. Albeit the woes of her parents, Jessa continued to pursue her dreams despite struggling with her health. 

She undergone numerous dialysis treatment and was even admitted in intensive care unit. But she was still able to attain her baccalaureate degree, and furthermore, attend review sessions for LET every week for four months.

After three months of waiting, the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) announced the results of LET. Although she was bedridden in the hospital, Jessa celebrated her success with her family and friends.
