One Great Person came down on Earth to show us how to live and love unconditionally. This Great Person is my inspiration in writing poems. Therefore all my poems have tints of spirituality and sense of caring. Poetry serves as inspiration for me. I love to write poems, inspire myself and share with others. I am a native of the Philippines. While doing graduate study at the University of the Philippines, Los Banos, Laguna I had the opportunity to be a part of a team that trained Peace Corp Volunteers assigned in the Philippines in 1961-1962. I left the Philippines in 1967 to live and work as Nutritionist in several Royal Lao Government Hospitals in Laos during the Vietnam war for six years from 1967 to 1973 when I migrated to the U.S. and became a U.S. Citizen in 1979. The Citizenship Council of Metropolitan Chicago honored me as Outstanding New Citizen of 1979-1980 ."for her deep concern for her fellow citizens and her belief that there is always a place for those willing to care and share." Presented September 17, 1980 observing Citizenship Day and Constitution Week as Proclaimed by the President of the United States. I hold a B.S. Degree in Home Economics. I am a License Dietitian Nutritionist in Illinois, a Certified Dietary Manager and Dietetic Technician Registered. I work as an Associate with Cynthia Chow and Associates, a Dietary Consulting Group based in Chicago, Illinois. Writing poems is one of my hobbies that include photography, taking videos, gardening, cooking and needlecrafts. My personal philosophy: "Success is how much of yourself have you given for others in need". My Economic Philosophy: "Buy what you need and not what you want", this I copied from my brother Orlando. My Faith Journey: "Be Faithful, remain attached to the Vine, and be a fruitful branch."
