"I once asked myself, how history was written. I said, "I have to invent it." When I wish as now to tell of critical incidents, persons, and events that have influenced my life and work, the true answer is all of the incidents were critical, all of the people influenced me, everything that happened and that is still happening influences me."
It's very hard for me to describe myself but this, I guess, is difficult for everybody. I think I'm a relatively thoughtful and quiet person,
Especially towards people I don't know very well. However, people who I call my friends, know me as a very lively and talkative person.
Basically, I think I'm a positive and life-affirming person. In my mind, everybody can reach nearly every goal, in case he/she really believes in it.
You just need a great portion of staying power, motivation, and enthusiasm - and I think, I do fulfill these "requirements".
At least till now, I was able to turn most of my dreams into reality - and some are still waiting to become reality.
I also believe that I'm patient and relatively calm - in the past, this wasn't necessarily the case but certain events in my life changed this behavior. Even so, sometimes I still can be very quick-tempered.
Furthermore, I think that I'm quite quick-witted - I often come up with an answer like that and moreover, I do not just sit down and take things (especially those that bother me) like that. Unfortunately, that's not always favorable - sometimes I have the feeling that people get a wrong impression of me - the impression that I always have to have the last word.
Apart from that, I'm curious and therefore I get relatively easy enthusiastic about certain ideas, things, etc. I also do not shrink back from challenges - on the contrary, most of the time I love to accept challenges.
Although I'm able to be spontaneous, I rather prefer to think over certain things in advance. Therefore, I sometimes have the problem of racking my brain over things, which do not occur in the end. But meanwhile, I'm working on this "problem".
Moreover, I'm very reliable - if I promise something I'll keep it. That's why I can't stand unreliable persons - if he/she is not able to hold onto things promised, then he/she should not promise anything.
I was born on July 24th, 1984, in the province of Daet, Camarines Norte in that part of Bicol-Philippines.
My father was a printing press operator and my mother was a fish vendor. We led a hard life, almost like peasants. During my childhood I had a long, actively spell of enjoyment and my happiness has always been present.
When I was six and already able to read and write, my parents motivated me to go to
Elementary since I already finished primary school and Kindergarten. At that time I discovered very interesting education in Bagasbas Elementary School. I plunged into the lesson and classics of the knowledge. Reading became a passion with me as well as writing. I carried books and pen hidden under my clothes and read and write wherever I could. My education in Elementary was maintained throughout six years with honors and awards each year.
I was quickly preparing to enter the secondary. But unfortunately every year in that level except in fourth year was always transferring into other school; from Moreno Integrated School to Lady of Peñafrancia College and to Camarines Norte National High School.
Apart from my secondary education I had to help my mother at the market to sell fresh Fishes to support our family in our everyday living.
I loved these diverse occupations since nobody checked my spare time, which I was able to devote entirely to business. By the age of seventeen I started to work at Jollibee-Daet as my part time job while I was studying at AMA Computer Learning Center of the same place. I was very proud to myself that time for the reason that it was very impossible for me to be able to work since I was just...
