“Di ko inakala magagawa ko ito kasi naman kakaenrol ko palang sa BM marami na nagsasabi ang hirap ng thesis diyan, maraming bumabagsak sa course na diyan (hirap daw kasi),” she recalled.

Hidilyn revealed that she was advised by countless people to move to another university which offers a faster completion date for her degree. The weightlifter didn’t budge and wanted to finish it at CSB which has been supportive of her endeavors as an athlete.

“Magshift kana ng courses at dun ka na sa ibang school na pwede kang makapagtapos ng pag-aaral by 1-2 years pero pinilit kong ipagpatuloy ang pagaaral sa @dls.csb dahil ang dami kong natutunan sa courses at sa mga instructor namin na mga magagaling sa field nila,” she shared.
