Librarians: Already... But Not Yet

As the nursing board exam scandal continues to make headlines—even meriting an Inquirer editorial on "Honor"—I thought of sharing the video of a speech I delivered when I took my oath as a licensed librarian in 2004.

Some people can be very insensitive. And with this latest scandal, it may be expected that anyone who passes a board exam will be subjected to jokes about making it due to a leak or cheating. But as I said before,

It was not luck, but a lot of hard work—whether in the weeks before the exam, months of attending classes while working at the same time, or years of being a library assistant and attending to the needs of husbands, wives and children. We did not win the lottery. We did not get lucky. We deserve to be here.
