We all know the story of Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio before he became the People’s Champ and now a Senator. He really did work hard on what he have right now. That is why this man is indeed an inspiration to many people.
Yet in every success he have right now, there are so many stories behind it.
One of the best example that showed how hard life was back then for Manny was his old ID that went viral on Social Media. That ID pertains for being an employee on a construction firm as a “Laborer” at LA Construction Corp.
The said photo was posted by Sarah Joy Gabriel Rivera on Memories of Old Manila on Facebook account. The caption of the said photo goes like this: “ID ni Sen. Manny Pacquiao n’ong nagtatrabaho pa siya sa construction. From rags to riches talaga.”
You can clearly see on the photo some of the main information of Manny. Like his address, position and the date when the ID was issued.
Apart from being a construction worker, Manny was also tried being a “padyak driver” and a “panadero”. These are just some of his works during his early times.
Yet right now we all know that the Manny Pacquiao who had a very hard life before is now a Champion in Boxing, famous all over the world, a Senator and a Bible Ambassador. He is even a businessman and along with all his achievements is that he still has a good and pure heart in helping people who are really in need.
His ID serves as an inspiration to many. Here are just some of the reactions from the netizens regarding the said post:
“Buhay nga naman ng tao, hindi mo alam ang mararating ng taong nakakasalamuha mo. Kaya ‘wag na ‘wag kang manghahamak ng kapwa. Malay mo, pagdating ng araw mas malaking tao pa ‘yan sa ‘yo. O kung hindi man sa kabilang buhay mas mauna pa siya sa langit keysa sa ‘yo.”
“God knows what’s in his heart kaya biniyayaan siya ng sandamakmak na blessings, siksik liglig at umaapaw ang biyaya ni God.”
Salute to our People’s Champ, our Senator, Manny “Pacman” Pacquaio.
