His success now is backed up with his perseverance and his humble beginnings. Lapides is from a family of five living in a two-bedroom apartment situated at a relocation site in Rodriguez, Rizal. His father is a construction worker and doing part-time jobs to provide enough for them.

Topping the board way back in 2011 has led him to a lot of opportunities abroad but he chose to stay here in the country and hoped to land a work in Philippine General Hospital (PGH). He is a graduate of Philippines College of Nursing (UPCN) in Manila for his bachelor’s degree in Nursing and University of the Philippines-Manila for Doctor of Medicine program.

And in a double celebration, his girlfriend, Baby Lyn Ann Tanalgo, also passed this year’s PLE. She is a graduate of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila College of Medicine in June 2019. Lapides scored 88.67 percent and along with him on the top list is Tiffany Uy, who holds the highest grade in UP Diliman with 1.004 general weighted average when she graduated in 2015.
