“It’s not a shame to fall; when and if you fall, get back up and dust yourself off and go again… Remember that most of what you’re stressing over now will be irrelevant in a year. And when you had a bad day there is always a new chance to make next time or tomorrow better.” -Unknown
“As women, we have unique characteristics given by God for us to be productive citizens. We have to stand for what is just and we have to join meaningful advocacies. We must use our skills, talents, and influence to the betterment of society. It is a blessing that we were born Filipino because here in our country (Philippines) there is lesser gender discrimination (compared with other countries), and women are also given a chance to have quality education, to be employed as company executives, and to become politicians (we have Filipina presidents). Learn from our history. Your past, your disabilities do not define you. Speak up. Be a light. Believe in yourself. Discover your passion. Heal yourself, and always improve yourself, remember: you can always seek help. A great professor once told me, the outlook of our country men should be to look beyond the essence of a woman (of just merely to give birth) that is, to value who she is, what she can do, and what she had accomplished. There are lot of women who have discovered their passion and who are working towards the fulfillment of their calling. Make a stand. You are beautiful and amazing by being real. You are meant for greatness. Acquire quality education, and live a life with purpose.”
