Pearl of the East
is a self-reflection of how I see myself as a Filipina in this day and age. The characteristics of each element interpret what makes me proud as a Filipino. It can be challenging at times to accept, but there will always be moments that I can say that I am proud to be Pinoy. I always adore how our culture revolves around colorful and passionate traditions and celebrations and how warm and hospitable we can be during these events. For me, these are the things that make us who we are.
From our colorful fiestas and warm get-togethers accompanied by good food and loud celebrations to our unending resilience to rise above all the challenges life has to offer.
