To my family and friends all across the world, thank you! *Special mention to my family from Antique for the never ending support! My lola and lolo, I love you.
And to you.
It humbles my heart whenever I get acknowledged by people who talks about what I have shared. Wether its an invitation to one of my fundraising events, an encouraging post on social media, or any of my achievements which I fail to recognize myself at times. This is why I truly believe that we will rise together. It takes a village, right? You may think that this is nothing, but knowing that what I voice out is being heard means that I am truly here for the right reason no matter what the outcome.
I know that I cannot do this alone. So, thank you, my team glow! <3
