From garbage scavenger to ‘Iska’: Nicole Maga’s story

For the young Nicole Maga, going to college seemed like an impossible dream. The 16-year-old grew up in the slums of Malabon, where she scavenged for anything she could sell to the junk shop so she can help feed her family.

Now, she is set to enter the University of the Philippines Manila as a freshman and scholar of the SCG Sharing the Dream program of the SCG Foundation. 

“[Instead] of letting myself down with the situation, I used it as a motivation to strive harder and hope that someday, our lives would be better,” said Maga.
