Marc Joseph Escora: the polio survivor

He had worked as a jeepney barker since he was 12 to support his studies.

He had lived in a public market in Libertad for seven long years.

He had been among the 223,615 scholars assisted by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) through its Training-for-Work Program Scholarship Program.

He is Marc Joseph Escora, a 25-year-old polio victim trained at the Negros Occidental Language and Information Technology Center (NOLITC) in Bacolod City.

He was featured in a three-minute video that the institution entered in the 1st Tatak Tesda Video Making Contest last May. It won in the Best in Video-School category and Escora was offered a scholarship in return. He took the opportunity to study the Finishing Course for Call Center Agents.

Escora is now a supervisor at a business process outsourcing firm, the PanAsiatic Solutions, in the aforementioned city.

“I was bullied and discriminated because of my condition. Despite this, I never stopped dreaming.” ~Mark Joseph Escora
