What do you think is the most significant contribution Filipino Women make to the country?

Stepping up, embracing change and making a difference. Gone are the days that the role of women are focused mainly on keeping the house and rearing the family. We have women leaders in the government and non-government sector, influencers in social media, women who use their talent and skills to help their fellow men and a long list of women educators.

What’s your best advice for Filipino women to achieve success?

There are three things I would like to share with Filipino women to achieve success.

1. Believe in yourself. When you have faith that you can overcome any obstacle, everything follows. Nobody is perfect, but if you believe you are a work in progress, that mistakes are normal, and that learning is a continuous process, you will certainly be able to achieve success.

2. Love yourself and know your worth. This is not a selfish act. As they say, you cannot pour from an empty cup. How can you love others when you can’t love yourself or fully accept who you are? How can you make others happy when you are not happy?

By loving yourself and knowing your worth, you will not have to depend on others for happiness, acceptance, or even love. By doing so, you will be a bright light of hope to every woman you meet.

3. Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes in life when things do not go as planned, despite the effort we put into achieving them.

Take it as a learning experience or a lesson learned, perhaps to do better next time, to take a different path, or to wait for the right time. The Bible says, for everything, there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven.

ABOUT ME: Tech-smart, business-savvy, down-to-earth. Connector of people & ideas.

I often introduce myself as someone who has failed in business several times since the age of 16, not because I am proud of my mistakes but because I value failure as a catalyst for success. I have since dedicated my life to helping others succeed.

Community, entrepreneurship and technology are at the heart of everything I do. I run a number of businesses and initiatives with a focus on providing a platform for women to harness technology for success.

I was invited by LinkedIn to be part of their LinkedIn Speaker Series and be among the 106 inspiring and innovative thinkers from around the globe. Read about it here.
