To those who became instruments in making this journey possible, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. I can never boast of this moment, this is all by the grace of God. Sa lahat ng magsisipagtapos, let us still consider ourselves students of this life. Never stop learning. When we stop learning, we stop growing. There are far more lessons that we have to discover. Don't be afraid of the process, God is with you. #GodIsFaithful #HeIsAble #InMyWeaknessHeIsStrong

After six years, three courses, nine semesters, one reality TV show, twelve teleseryes and over fifty television shows – I’m finally here today. To be honest, I never thought I’d see this day coming. After numerous struggles that came my way, there were several times where I doubted myself, cried and just wanted to give up. But despite the overwhelming odds against me, someway and somehow I made it with the help of God, my family, friends, professors, classmates and workmates. Like they say… the struggle is real but it’s all worth it. Myrtle Abigail P.

It’s almost Christmas, and if you’re wondering what gifts you can give to your friends or how you can help those who are in need, I’m happy to be part of @unicefphils’ Basket of Hope campaign. ❤️ . WHAT IS IT? For your donation of PHP 500 (or more), Unicef will provide life-saving and life-building resources to underprivileged children. The children will not receive an actual basket, but would be provided what they actually need. This could be in the form of malnutrition treatments, food packs, school supplies (backpacks included), hygiene essentials, and/ or access to clean water. . HOW ARE MY FRIENDS PART OF THIS? When you make a donation, you have an option to send an email to somebody (like a friend). Swipe to see a sample. I have been gifted something like this before (a friend planted a tree in my name) and it was one of the best gifts I’ve received. ❤️ Your friend will not get an actual basket, but would get an email from you that you’ve made a donation in his/her name. If they like the idea, they can definitely donate, too. . HOW CAN I START DONATING? Just go to this link: https://bit.ly/2Qc1c4W .
