Introducing myself and my journal: A Woman from the Masa
I grew up in a small, undeveloped fishing village on the island of Bohol in the Philippines. I was born of the Masa, the poorest of the poor. To help my family break the cycle of poverty and to save my own two girls, I became an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW). I spent 20 years overseas in Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong working as a Nanny and domestic helper. Both my girls graduated college.
In Hong Kong, an eight year old Chinese boy under my care taught me to use a computer. Today, I own and operate a successful technology based outsourcing company in Davao City, Philippines.
As a woman empowered with technology, I am compelled to act on behalf of the sisters I left behind. Others keep telling this is not begging, but fighting for a cause. I hope that is true. http://igg.me/p/620262/x/1082425
Advocacy for Migrant Workers and the fight against human trafficking.
Not enough time in the day to do all that needs to be done.
My Vision for the Future:
One day, the least among us will be empoered with technology to help themselves and those around them.
My Areas of Expertise:
