Making her mama proud: Pinay achieves her immigration dream to Australia at the age of 23

Emmabelle's success story to Australia

Nueva Ecija—Having always been an achiever, it may not seem surprising to see 23-year-old Emmabelle fulfill her immigration dreams at such a young age.

A graduate of Bachelor of Arts in International Studies of Far Eastern University, Emmabelle studied foreign languages like Spanish and Mexican. She worked as an Accounts Executive in the Philippines before finally deciding to make the big move to Australia.

The main reason she took her chance to study in Australia through The Visa Center’s student visa program is all for her love for her mom. To quote Emmabelle in a post she once directed to her mom, “I hope someday I make you proud.”

Raised by a single-mom, Emmabelle wants nothing but the best for her and her mom’s future.

Fortunately, even with the COVID-19 pandemic disrupting order across the globe early this year, she still managed to fulfill her immigration dreams.

Her visa application got approved exactly during her birthday last March 2020.

On that same day, The Visa Center relayed to Emmabelle what she now considers the best gift she could ever have—her granted visa application.

On the live video posted on Facebook by The Visa Center - Nueva Ecija, Emmabelle shares her first reaction upon receiving the news.

“Nung tinawagan ako, nasa trabaho ako nun, kaya sobrang na-caught off guard ko noon… Iyak ako ng Irak noon sa phone. Iba yung emotions or feelings na naramdaman ko kasi yesterday birthday ko rin. So, ‘yung pagka-grant ng visa ko rin ay parang bigay rin talaga sakin ni Lord. So, I consider it the best gift rin na binigay nya sa akin.” Shared Emabelle.

During the interview, Emmabelle was joined by her mother, Belen.

“Sobrang happy and thankful [ako] sa Lord at sa inyo sa The Visa Center, thank you,” said her mom.

After receiving the approved visa application, Emmabelle travelled to Australia a week after to start with her international studies.

Emmabelle’s advice to those who plan to start their immigration journey with The Visa Center: “Ang payo ko lang, kung ano ‘yung hinihingi ng The Visa Center, just trust them. Kasi they know what’s best for your application. So, ‘pag may hinihingi sila na mahirap kuhanin, try your best! Kasi alam nila na itong requirement na Ito ay ang talagang magpapa-grant ng visa ninyo.”

She said the process was not done overnight and the waiting can sometimes make you feel uneasy, but in the end, it’s all worth it.

“If you are really interested to go to Canada and Australia [or any European country], trust them…. Also, dapat maging patient. Masakit ‘yung dibdib mo tuwing naghihintay ka pero at the end of the day kapag na-receive mo ‘yung good news, sobrang laking ginhawa sa feeling. Thank you sa guidance ng TVC,” shared Emmabelle.

Her immigration consultant Ms. Isabelita Talens also shared some warm words that truly reflect the pure objective of The Visa Center in being your partner in shaping a better future.

“Sa mga clients namin na patuloy na nagtitiwala, sa bawat pagpasok ninyo sa aming [opisina] kasabay ng pangarap ninyo, kami po ay dumadalangin at nagdadasal na sana ‘yang pangarap ninyo ay making kabahagi kami,” shared Ms. Isabelita.

Currently, Emmabelle is in Australia; making her mama proud, every day.
