When I graduated college, I told myself I will search for a job that is meant for communication arts. It’s not easy as i thought it would be, but it didn’t hinder me to spot a great one.
I remember back then, with help of a great friend and a mentor, Jojo Terencio (former writer of President Fidel V. Ramos, not to forget the other outstanding politicians he worked with and now an executive in an International Company) he asked me if I want a glimpse of the Senate. I said yes in a jiffy 🙂
That on-the-job training under the media office of Senate of the Philippines really opened a lot doors for me. I am travelling from Fairview to Senate (Manila, near Mall of Asia) every single day in public transportation. I am so determined and inspired from everything I see and learn from the Senate until I scored a job under the office of Senator Villar. Although I was torn between due to an offer in a Global network that will train me to be a news correspondent (thanks to Peachie Urquiola, a good friend and executive staff of Sen. Gringo Honasan)
Jojo Terencio & Peachie U
It’s hard to decide, both offer is great. I opted to work at the government. I was thankful for my wonderful friends, Jojo and Peachie who helped me from where I start.
I enjoyed the world of Politics and if you’ll read my previous blogs, you will perhaps remember how happy I am in every adventure I had while working for a Senator.

Moving on, just last year, I decided to join corporate world in a multinational company. There are so many things to learn and I am always going for professional growth. I want to know my limits…
I became a Public Relation Executive at the age of 25. It was all hard work and a lot of trials that really tested me both professional and not-so-professional terms.

On the other hand, it was also the time I first saw my name in a corporate magazine! It was awesome.
One of the magazines, I have my name with 🙂
After all the drama and stuff, I just can simply look at it and remember the good times I had while writing those stories. Even the interview with the executives in the company for internal viewing made me feel so good as it was my first time to feel like a news reporter.
unforgettable MIC 🙂 my bestfriend in covering an event!
All this started from a dream and an inspiration. I am truly blessed for having all these opportunity and from loving friends who believed in me, my mentors (Jojo Terencio, Roy Mabasa, Peach Urquiola, Bryan Edang, Judith Sto. Domingo) same goes with my family that supporter me all the way! My husband and my best friend, Mylene and Amiel. They are my top cheerers!
Now, as I embrace the world of a full time housewife and a part time writer, all for the best in next adventure I am up to that will make me a buy another designer bag, just kidding!
