If I would be asked to sum up my life up to the present, I would describe it as a series of blessings in disguise and one that is directed by faith.
As a child, I have always given value to planning, envisioning a desired future and working hand to achieve it. I also learned the value of prayer and listening to God’s plan. Thus, I already had my life planned out even before I got out of my elementary days.
My first dream was to become a chemist. I loved the sciences and math that led me to a journey that is aimed at getting into the Philippine Science High School in Quezon City. However, even if I passed the entrance exam, some circumstances prevented me from getting into the premier high school. Never a person to dwell on setbacks, I moved on and changed my plans. I ended up studying in Maryknoll College High School (MCHS) in Quezon City after studying first year in UNEP. The worse broke my heart. I didn’t want to be away from family and friends. But again, I adhered to the adage, blooms where you’re planted. So I did.
It turned out to be the best decision my mother ever made concerning my life. Maryknoll, now Miriam College High School is a school where excellence was a way of life. I was an average student where everyone seemed to be best. The academic atmosphere though was not competitive at all. We lived the tagline, “Be the best that you can be.” And I made sure that I did.
It was in MCHS that I started to forge a dream to become a writer. I read a lot and wanted to become a fiction writer. My plan was to study creative writing in University of the Philippines (UP), take my masters abroad and start a career in fiction writing. But again, the Lord had other plans for me. Guiding me, through my own father, I was directed to study Journalism instead, which my dad said was more stable and lucrative career.
I have always been an obedient child and I am proud of it. I attribute my success to this inherent prudence. I admit I have a stubborn streak, but I never risked my life and my future needlessly. I have always valued the wisdom of elders and this has kept me on the path of achievement.
