.A very hectic schedule did not hinder Chelle from reviewing for the exam despite being a working student at BSU.

Chelle’s mother is a plain housewife while her father is a farm technician. They inspired her to take agriculture.
Her mother praised her, “Chelle was an active student and she was very good academically and also in extracurricular activities. And she was a good student.”
“We are proud of her. Sana, she will continue na maging ganun and she will pursue para sa kanyang kinabukasan. Ano man ang mangyari, ang gusto namin ay, she has to remain humble,” her father said.
Both parents areproud of her because she isn’t just a hardworking student but a good daughter as well.
Chelle is now encouraging young ones to study agriculture.
“Kumakain tayo araw araw… so kailangan natin ng sustainable food everyday, healthy food. So, kailangan natin ang mga farmers, agriculturist, and scientist. So I encouraged the younger generations to go into agriculture kasi maraming matututunan.”
