How do you describe yourself?
A happy go lucky type of person. Cheerful and talkative. I’m very optimist and positive in handling my everyday routine and also people around me. I love to help people who are in need and always persuade myself to be non judgmental towards anyone. I love to learn new things and I really like challenges because learning how to overcome challenges teach me the true meaning of life.
What do you want to be when you’re still a child? Why?
When I was a child I always wanted to be an astronaut. This is because I want to travel and explore our universe as well as enjoy the beauty. They say that earth is in circle form so I want to see it to believe their word.
What makes you work in this field? Why?
At first, I joined the workshop just for fun and to spend my free time in a n useful ways. Then I began to go to juvenile schools, juvenile homes, orphanage homes and I began to see that the resident from these homes and schools need help. They need information, they need support and the most importantly they needed someone that they can talk to regarding their personal matters and about sexual and reproductive health. There are so many people out there talking about religion, crime, and environment but there are so few people who speak and advocate for sexual reproductive health continue to volunteer in this field because I think it is not too late to save what I can for a better future of young people in our country.
