A Facebook user named Aeb R Ose or “Bea” has shared her inspiring story from being an ordinary kamote kahoy to a call center agent. Her post immediately circulates online and garnered various reactions from the netizens.
According to Bea, she is a former street vendor selling kakanin, kamoteng kahoy and rug. The young lady is selling goods to help her parents pay for her tuition fee at school. Her family lives on the brink of poverty in the province.
“Nakapagtapos ako dahil sa pagbebenta ng mga kakanin, kamoteng kahoy, mga basahan. Tinutulungan ko ang aking mga magulang sa pagbebenta para din may pang bayad sa school. Napakahirap ng buhay ko at nang pamilya ko noong nasa probinsya pa ako kasi kahit pambili ko ng shampoo ay wala akong pambili at pag na rerecall ulit iyon ay tumutulo nalang ang mga luha ko,” Bea said.
The young lady has decided to go to Manila to apply as a call center agent although she has no idea about the BPO industry. She diligently go to work every day and endured hardships during her training.
At first, she received distasteful remarks from her trainer because of her lack of knowledge but it gives her inspiration to work hard. Eventually, she overcome it and now working as an agent for technical support.
“After my birthday nag decide akong pumunta sa luzon para mag apply as CALL CENTER AGENT, honestly wala akong kaalam alam sa pag ca-call center kaya nagpursigi akong pumasok araw-araw para matutunan ko ang proseso nito kung papaano. Masalimut din ang aking naging experience during trainings and leap kasi doon ko na ramdaman na ang bobo ko palagi akong di nakaka intindi sa product sinasabihan ako ng masasakit na salita and minsan pag na cocoaching puro mali ang nakikita but moving forward I used it for me to be better and strong,” Bea added.
