Work Background
I started to work in my early age at 16. I had a few different experiences working in factories in Manila, making candies and construction materials. I also worked as a caddy girl at Mimosa Golf and Country Club, as a dishwasher for a catering service, and finally before I entered, I worked in an institution which helped clients that had been abandoned, abused, and assisted unwed mothers.

Present Ministry
During my Postulancy, I was sent to the Aetas, at Villa Maria and Barangay Diaz for three months, and the same place for four months during my Apostolic year. I was also assigned a school ministry at Lubao Community and assisted Sister Zenaida in our small library.

Interests/Hobbies
I like playing guitar and keyboard, playing volleyball, and eating.

What drew me to the Adrian Dominican Sisters
Being part of Adrian is an opportunity to live out the Gospel truth in our lives through formation. When I entered the Remedies Chapter, I never knew about the beginning of our Congregation, they only discuss this after entrance. I am very grateful to know that a small family I found is a big family on a distant shore. 

What excites me about religious life today
It is the mission of Christ on earth, being part of the cross, to love the people of God, to embrace those people who cannot accept the person as I am. To serve and not to be served. To live out the Gospel of Christ in my life and to share good things so that the people of God will see the presence and face of Christ in me. That in all things, God may be glorified!
