“ I dream of a Philippines without poverty and I believe this can be done through financial literacy and technological innovations.”
After graduating from a public high school in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental and wanting to improve my family’s life, I asked my parents to send me to a private university for my college degree. Since my parents cannot afford the tuition because we were 4 children in the family, I worked for four years as a working student. I graduated as a consistent outstanding student from freshman to senior. While people were partying and having fun in college I was working.
I wanted to change our family’s situation. We were a family of farmers. Both of my parent’s parents were farmers and we didn’t experience the nice things in life. Growing up, we never had an air-conditioned car. We rarely take vacations and if we do it is usually just in Dumaguete. My parents never experienced the good life.
In college I took the course BS-Accountancy but even when I was in elementary and high school I had a deep interest in technology and computer programming. I can remember when I was in elementary, I was already making small websites. In fact this website domain www.mjtfernandez.com was a domain I owned from my elementary years.
Unfortunately, my parents did not want me to take up BS-Information Technology and thus I became an accountant. Right after college I went to Manila to take the CPA board exam and passed board. My first job was an accountant – as an IT auditor at SGV & Company, one of the largest audit firms in the Philippines. I then pursued my passion in finance, entrepreneurship and computer programming thereafter. To date, I own 4 companies in finance, technology, consultancy and transportation.
Next chapters of my life are being written everyday and this blog aims to share to you the things I learned in my life journey. I love to learn new things especially about finance, economics and technology. Success is a series of small steps and success is relative. My definition of success can be different as yours. Whatever it is, pursue success and happiness because you deserve it. Let’s journey and become successful together.
