Money was tight when Andrew's parents were raised in the Philippines, so tight that as children they would study by candlelight because their families couldn't afford electricity. Both parents, knowing the value of an education, pursued and instilled that same value in Dimond HS graduate Andrew Lastimoso. Andrew now shares his journey for the Alaska Performance Scholarship with the rest of us.
