Ariel is an ordinary boy living an ordinary life. He grew up to poverty in Ilocos Sur, and lost his father when he was 12. Ever since then, he had dreamt of becoming a soldier to help others out, and to ultimately serve his country. But what's more admirable is that he never let the circumstances in his life affect his goal, even if it seems that life is against him! He tried his hand at PMA twice, but got rejected eventually. Still, with the help of his supportive girlfriend Margaret, he tried his luck once more, and got in.
