Public School Teacher from Cagayan de Oro Becomes the Final Shopee Milyonaryo Winner!

It's true that teachers often go the extra mile for their students, sometimes sacrificing a lot for their students—and this rings especially true during these trying times. A 7th-grade science teacher at a public high school in Cagayan de Oro, Amy Malagum is not only a teacher but a mom of three as well with her youngest being born during the pandemic 7 months ago.

Despite the health risks involved, she still goes to school from time to time to distribute modules. Juggling parenting and teaching while her husband is away at work is difficult, but Amy takes it all in stride. 

As the second eldest in a brood of ten, Amy also acts as something of a de facto mom to her siblings who have lost jobs due to the pandemic. “Pilipino kasi tayo e, hindi lang direct family natin yung iniintindi natin. ‘Pag yung mga kapatid ko nangungutang, kailangan kong tulungan kasi nakakaawa.

But it’s financially draining to support both her own family and her siblings. 

With this, Amy tried out for Shopee Milyonaryo on the morning of November 11. That very same day, she won the jackpot prize on Wowowin. 

For Amy, the cash prize is a blessing not for herself, but for her family. Amy plans to invest the money in a house for her children and share the rest with her siblings. “Bibigyan ko talaga mga kapatid ko, kasi blessing yun e. Sana ma-invest nila sa business para kung magka-problema sila, meron silang madudukot na pera.

Shopee Milyonaryo was an interactive lucky draw contest that ran on GMA’s Wowowin from October 25 to November 11. Users got the chance to win up to ₱1,000,000 in cash every weekday. Learn more about past Shopee Milyonaryo winners by visiting
