ARTICLE | A Personal Look Back On 2016


In a few minutes, 2017 will step in. I would like to look back on my whole 2016 and see what has transpired with it. In hindsight, I know that 2016 has become a shaky year for me, testing my limits and faith on the universe. Thus the reason why I would like go back in the past 12 months.


January 2016




Could it be that you thought you would be leaving the Philippines quite soon. You were positive about it. But at the back of your mind, something is pulling you back. It is not yet time. You had to listen to the voice inside you and keep the faith.

It was all faith that made me firm all throughout. But it wasn't an easy stand. There were many a time when I thought all hope was lost. But I just kept moving on. I kept praying that I may be an instrument for a larger plan.

In January, I started the "Sewing Machine" fund drive to help the less privileged community adopted by my alma mater. It was a rather unusual start with me literally bumping with Ms. Forneste, my former teacher in Morality.

In that corner, we exchanged pleasantries and she mentioned about donating to the community. I took it as a challenge and gathered all the resources- time and money, to mobilize my batchmates and be able to procure the sewing machines. 

The plan was only for one sewing machine, but in the end we were able to donate three.
