About Me: 

I used to be the underdog with my looks ( brown complexion) plus the reality that I am a girl ( when I was a kid). I am used to being the center of the jokes and ridicules of my classmates and how I wished then to possess the strength of a man.Now , as a female teacher happily married to my hubby , with three kids, I realized that I don't have to be masculine to become a man. I'm a woman and I am enjoying my life. I am the boy scout coordinator of the school where I am currently teaching. It is my desire to improve myself and be of worth to the community where I am.

My Passions: 
driving motorcycles, listening to gospel music, watching good films
My Challenges: 
to become a school head and to improve my economic situation, and be able to sustain the college education of my eldest daughter who is now in her first year
My Vision for the Future: 
a more peaceful world where everyone respects one another
My Areas of Expertise: 
teaching
My Languages: 
English, Filipino
