As a businesswoman I believe I have moral obligation to others especially those working for the company. I help them see the importance of patience, hardwork and loyalty. I make them realize that there is no shortcut to success and that everything comes in the right place at the right time. No matter what the situation is, just like this pandemic I make it a point for my team to see the opportunities on how to rise above the crisis. I teach them not to just whine and lose hope because I believe that blessings sometimes come in a difficult situation. During this uncertain time, we all need each other and it is not all about money. We can also share our time, ideas and energy. Kindness that is passed on can multiply. So, we advocate to take just a few minutes anytime and do kindness for another person. It can be something small for the start of something big. We are always reminded that kindness and helping others come back like a boomerang to those who are genuinely kind. It might come back to you from a different direction. Sometimes the return is immediate or sometimes it takes years to come back but it always returns.

CerviQ firmly believes in the power of helping even without expecting something in return. We are aware that helping others is not only good for the receiver, but it also gives satisfaction to the giver because it creates stronger community ties and build a happier society for everyone. Our group CerviQ is a social enterprise that aims to end cervical cancer in the Philippines relies mostly on donations and sponsors to help us conduct cervical screening. However, being naturally resourceful we combined it with fund-generating activities in order to augment the expenses and to sustain the operations to meet our goal. About two weeks ago, we were invited to meet with Captain Aries Williameer Villaester, a young visionary warden of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) in Naic, Cavite. His prime advocacy is called Sponsor-A-Release-Program wherein persons deprived of liberty (PDLs) are trained to produce visual arts like paintings, sculpture, woodcrafts to fund the release of qualified and deserving PDLs. We got an in-depth overview of his project and the worthy meaning of his advocacy. Villaester boastfully presented to us the works of art made by the PDLs and we were impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of their works. The paintings are comparable to known artists in the country. This prompted us to design an avenue wherein we can help them sell their crafts.
