“To my most beautiful mother! Ma, your eldest has graduated I hope you’re happy in the presence of God. I finished school because this is what you wanted. I love you very much.”

The tweet was met with thousands of comments from netizens who were touched by Paulo’s love for his late mother.

Paulo, who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, told Coconuts Manila that it was his dream to graduate with his mother by his side. However, she sadly passed away in 2016 due to complications from pneumonia. He told the news portal,

“I had that standee made so that I could at least feel my mum’s presence on graduation day because my graduation from college was our dream.”

Paulo was very specific with his requests to the company that made the styrofoam cutout for him, instructing them to make sure that it measured to 5 feet and 2 inches (approx 157cm) to match the height of his mother.

He brought the cutout to his graduation ceremony as a way to pay tribute to his mother, saying,

“She was a single parent [for a few years]. She sent me to private schools. And we were very close to each other. My mother didn’t ask my stepfather to send me to college. All of the money came from her and my aunts who helped out.”

“When I brought it (the cutout) to my graduation, I was so happy because I really felt I was with my mum.”

While it’s certainly a tough loss to deal with, we’re proud of Paulo for successfully earning his degree and honoured his mother in this way!
