I'm a working mum. I wear make up. I dress up. I take care of myself as much as I take care of my daughter and our family. I don't feel guilty pampering myself from time to time. I bring food to the table. I breastfeed my child.
I am a mother who feels beautiful. I am an educated wife. I work my ass up the corporate ladder. I am a super woman. And I am confident.
I feel so proud to live in a world where women are empowered. Where women are confident. Where women are educated and opinionated. Where we are happy.
"A new year marks the beginning of new hopes, new promises, and new ambitions. As we all strive to be the best versions of ourselves, we constantly try to find ways of going beyond beautiful, and transforming ourselves for the better to become the woman we aspire to be. Gone are the days of the Maria Claras, as women are slowly climbing up the ranks and embracing bigger and better roles for themselves. Today, the Modern Filipina has become both a spotlight and a beacon. She has evolved into a fearless and trailblazing individual determined to realize her dreams and make a positive influence in the world."
So join me as I celebrate the Modern Filipina with my fellow Modern Filipinas on Creamsilk Transformations: Spotlight on the Modern Filipina - a glamorous, empowering and inpiring activity-filled event on the 23rd of January at the World Trade Center.
See you there!
