Recently, the University of Cebu awarded Ababat with a scholarship for helping the mango vendor. The university also made the nursing student a role model because of her heroic act.

“So, we decided to make Angyl Fayth as our model for a marketing poster this month. Angyl showed exceptional act of kindness during the neck-slashing incident last Monday, January 30.

Good job Angyl, you serve as good example of a true UCnian that cares. You’re a real ‘HERO’. The whole University of Cebu community is so proud of you!

From a role model, Now you are a real MODEL!,” UC wrote.
