Filipina Working Mom in Australia Graduates Summa Cum Laude From Law School


If you keep your eyes on the prize, as this working Filipino mother in Australia did, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Zarah Denese Magpantay-Tenorio received her Bachelor of Laws as SUMMA CUM LAUDE from Charles Darwin University.

Being a working mother is difficult enough. Imagine juggling the demands of caring for your children while also being a student. Zarah Denese, on the other hand, demonstrated that anything is possible if you put your heart and soul into it.

Zarah Denese faced the difficulties of being an immigrant in Australia in 2013. She eventually found work at the Northern Territory Ombudsman’s Office years later. Despite the numerous responsibilities of being a working mother, she excelled in law school.

She expressed her surprise when she learned she would receive the highest honor – the summa cum laude – in an interview with TFC News Australia’s Annalyn Mabini.

Zarah Denese said, “Parang nag-flash back po lahat ng pagpupuyat, pag-aaral at pagsisikap ko for the past four years.”
“Sobrang overwhelmed po ako, dati pangarap ko lang, ngayon nandito na,” she added.

It wasn’t easy for her to achieve her goal. She had to meet deadlines while also dealing with stress, according to the hardworking mother.

She recalled, “Mahirap po kasi, e. Nakakapagod, nakaka-stress at minsan parang walang time to complete everything within the deadline.”

Zarah Denese urged other immigrants to hold on to their dreams, no matter how far-fetched they may appear to be.

“I hope my fellow Filipinos po na makakabasa nito, take the time to get out of their comfort zone and pursue their passion,” she said.
“Kung may pangarap po kayo, work for it. Do it for yourself. If you don’t want to do it for yourself, do it for your children,” she remarked.
