They basically belonged to the group of international medical graduates, who were being recruited by the medical centers in America. Dr. Bautista decided to pledge his service to the hospital, where he received his training. Elwin made good use of this opportunity to practice advanced medicine and eventually and honed his skills in surgical specialty. He went on to develop life-saving techniques that were acknowledged by the surgeons across the world. With the gradual rise in fortunes, the Bautista couple emerged as the rising millionaires.
They had always believed that regardless of being an immigrant or a millionaire, the core value that ought to be regarded dear, is education. There can be no substitute to successful education as this alone makes a complete individual, who is equipped to take all decisions with the best of intentions.
