Homecoming

Last summer, I finally visited my hometown after being gone for 15 years. I was so excited that  I stuck my head out of the car window and loudly shouted, “Welcome Davao City!”  It was something that I wouldn’t have done anywhere else. I was so fascinated with the street scenes and people as I traveled around the city and surrounding areas. I could’ve gone to the resorts and beaches to take pictures (the Philippines really has beautiful beaches) but I wasn’t interested in touristy places. My passion for street photography prevailed so I took pictures of the everyday life scenes as they occur in front of my eyes. Those images are more precious to me because they remind me of the strength of the people and their capacity to endure poverty.

Fun, creative, and humorous are words that describe me. I spend a lot of time with my family which consists of my husband, 4 children and extended relatives. I enjoy making and maintaining true and lasting friendships. Photography, writing, and music help express myself in artistic ways. I love all kinds of sports like basketball, volleyball, and tennis. I am a special education teacher in an urban school district. I feel it's my mission to teach children with disabilities and to be their advocate.
