Jay Nelson Corbita made his family proud, most especially his father, after topping the mechanical engineering licensure examination.
 
According to ABS-CBN News, Jay's father Nelson worked as a grade school janitor and had to retire early to use his retirement pay for the education of his kids. 
 
“I felt pressured while taking the exam because I know other people expected me to top it. But I told myself that even if I will not top the exam, at least I knew I did my best to pass it,” Jay stated.
 
Jay garnered a rating of 92.20 percent in the board exam. He graduated summa cum laude from Xavier University in Cagayan de Oro City.
