Almost three months after she was retrenched as a field reporter for ABS-CBN’s Lingkod Kapamilya, Bernadette Sembrano remains in high spirits as she continues work as an anchor on TV Patrol which she joined in 2015. The 44-year-old broadcast journalist remembered her journey towards becoming a broadcaster after running into former ABS-CBN journalist turned politician Gilbert Remulla last weekend.
On her Instagram account, she wrote, “’Bumped’ into #gilbertremulla today and apt reminder of how my broadcasting career began. In 1998, he was still a journalist then and he interviewed me, a fresh grad job hunting amidst the Asian currency crisis. His cameraman, kuya Rolly planted the seed in my head ‘Pwede Kang maging reporter.’ I was a Business Administration graduate but How open I was then about ALL job openings and possibilities! Today we are ALL reminded of that. Every day God is opening doors. Every day is a brand new day full of possibilities and encounters. When somethjng is tugging in your heart, say YES and GO GO GO! Sending you the positive vibes . And yes , hold on to the joy in your heart and share it with others :)... as another door opens for me — my journalist’s heart will stay true - it’s always about their story and always for God’s glory. OUR story grew wings.”
In a previous post, the TV Patrol news anchor shared how she will always choose to live life without regrets and keep positive no matter what happens. She wrote, “Today, I remain grateful. I am a changed person because of my fieldwork and I know that every moment I had as a field reporter, wala akong inaksayang panahon. So, I hope you choose the positive that happened today to remember each day and remember to be grateful.”
Bernadette is married to Emilio "Orange" Aguinaldo IV who is also the great-grandson of prominent historical figure and the first President of the Philippine government in 1898, Emilio Aguinaldo.
