About Me: 

My awareness and concern of poverty in a developing country like the Philippines where I was born and raised, are great influences to my strong advocacy in helping people. I now live in New York as an immigrant, and I carry with me the value of making a difference to people’s lives. I advocate women's rights, social responsibility and volunteerism. I look for organizations and group of people whose common goal is to give an impact to the community and individual person. I connect myself with them, and I use my role as a citizen journalist to let other people know their stories and the importance of what they do. That is the inner voice - the voice to tell stories, influence, inspire and make an impact to the world.

My passion for journalism and dealing with people have strengthened my mission as an individual. As an advocate of women's rights and other important issues, I live that mission. I started as a citizen journalist with Allvoices. I elevated my voice and became a CNN iReporter since August 2010. In my photos, I capture beauty. In my stories, I talk about life.

New York is not only the center of business and cultural diversity, but it is also a haven of global events, opportunities and solutions. My eyes are always open for positive news, and my ears are always alert for positive voices. The power of my voice as a citizen journalist and the voices of people who have common goal to transform and make the world a better place to live - is the path to strong voices of our future.
