My Job, My Career
I'm a social pr practitioner..that's it. I never imagined that this is the career for me. When I was younger, gusto ko maging doctor (yeah, you heard it right, i wanted to be a doctor). but when I reached highschool, I changed my mind, said I want to be an artist/painter. So I took a test in UST and had my examinations and actual drawing. But I was not lucky then, the department said , mas mabuti ako sa masscom - my 2nd choice - so I take that as I failed the drawing test:(..
After that, I decided, I will take Marketing or Advertising to make use of my creativity - kung di ako mahusay sa drawing, at least sa strat/concept - babawi ako.
I took tests from a lot of Universities - Miriam, Holy Spirit, CE, La Salle, St. Scho, St. Paul Manila - then I chose St. Paul. I made a very good decision at this school (i think:) a lot I learned from my part time professors (they work in Pepsi, Nestle, SGV, Unilever and others). di ko na ikwento ha kung bakit ako lumipat sa Letran - (sneak: had to transfer to another school after giving birth to my first daughter..yun na)
The pr agency I am connected to right now is the 2nd "serious" job that I have. Mind you, Social Marketing is not easy, it's very challenging but it changed the way I see and approach life. I believe I can do more, I can do great things..and I can do well. and that's why I'm sharing 2 photos as "PROOF"...It's almost lunchtime and I have to finish 2 media plans and then I saw these photos..and I want to share it, simple things can really make you feel great...
