If I were a superhero, my superpower would be…
I guess it would be the power of healing: be it healing someone’s emotional damage, physical health, or even spiritual one. If only I have this superpower, I would use it to save the people that I love, those with great contributions to the society, and those who show kindness to humanity.
Who is someone you admire?
Aside from my Mom, a person that I admire the most is Her Excellency Vice President Maria Leonor Gerona Robredo. She is the 14th Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines and is currently a presidential candidate in our country. What makes her stand out from the rest is that she is not one of the traditional politicians who are usually hungry for power. I can feel her sincerity to serve the people especially those from the “laylayan ng lipunan”. Her leadership exemplifies an honest and clean government that every Filipino deserves.
