Hi, I know I haven’t posted in awhile and this is how I would want try to reintroduce myself in a more detailed way. Well, why you ask? I just feel like I have to connect more with you guys in order to reach out to each and everyone of you, in any way possible; about my dreams, advocacies, aspirations and current well-you-know “life” hehe.
I don’t think I’ll have any stalkers anyway right? So let me tell you a bit of my life by making it into a short story.
I was born in the Philippines, yes I am a Filipina. I am currently 22 years of age, which means I was born on 1997, the month of hearts, February and on the 9th of it. I grew up with my mom and our relatives, mostly mom’s side taking care of me and my older brother. My dad is an amazing dad, he had to leave the Philippines so he could work abroad and provide a better life for us. I never really had an ill feeling towards him for leaving, my parents have been the best that they could be during those times. They never forgot to remind us how love is and how it should be. I remember sending tons of letters to my dad as if he’s just around, I remember him arriving from the airport knowing he’d only stay for 2 weeks as his vacation.. at some point it was heartbreaking.. so I guess everyone just got tired of that scenario hahaha so God blessed us with the opportunity to go there. I guess I was 8 or 9yrs old when my family went to Saudi Arabia, ahhh finally! I get to be with my dad, it wasn’t really that hard to adjust. It actually feels amazing to live in Saudi, everything was cheap! We have winter and summer, I really don’t like the rain to be honest so it all worked out! We had a Filipino community that welcomed us there, church mates that were also Filipinos, a mall filled with Filipinos, Filipino stores, Filipino food, everything Filipino! My heart was full, Saudi Arabia became my second home!read more
