What are you most curious about in life?
I am curious about life in general but nowadays, I am most curious about COVID19 pandemic, the “real” medication to treat the virus, and when it will come to an end so we can go back to “old normal”.
What are the failures that you most cherish?
When I decided to leave my stable job in the Philippines for a supposedly good offer abroad, only to find out that it was a scam. I struggled a lot but by God’s grace, I managed the situation and finally got a better opportunity. Sometimes the wrong choices lead us to the right places.
If you could go back five years, what advice would you give your younger self?
I missed a lot of opportunities because I held myself back so I would have advised myself to keep going, have confidence and believe in myself. Also, no matter how busy life is, you can always find time to further your studies and/or work on your professional improvement. It is never too late to pursue your dreams.
What do you do outside of the work environment?
I spend a lot of my spare time keeping in touch with my family through video calling. I also enjoy watching good movies, and at times, hanging out with my friends.
What is the most courageous thing you have done in your life?
I have always been fond of traveling, exploring new places and try new things but coming to the UAE alone and not knowing what was in store for me was different. It was not easy in the beginning, I was taken aback for a while and made a lot of adjustments.
What is your favourite film/series and why?
One of my favorite movies is “Life is Beautiful” as it shows that life is as beautiful as we want it and as we make it to be, it teaches how to cope up with the unexpected and will inspire you to smile even under the direst circumstances.
