Stop The Power of Stigma #GreenRibbonCampaign #cerebralpalsy

I was moved by what we are… PWD? Disabled? A girl living with cerebral palsy rode on a jeep. The passengers judged her that she could not understand everything. The innocent looks at her eyes were looking at them; one of them laughed, others were questioning through their eyes, but a man helped her. The girl spoke to her mom. Her mom and grandma were just ignoring the stigma of a cruel society we are all in.

#REALTALK That girl is obviously me 🙂 By the grace of God, I handle every judgments very well. Thank you for the patience Father God!

What is a stigma?

a mark of disgrace associated with a particular circumstance, quality, or person.

Help me in telling people about cerebral palsy.  Help me eradicate the stigma of being a PWD. We are not Persons with disability… we are persons with different abilities… we are able . . . we are special . . . we are the people who needs your compassion not your pity. we are the people who needs your understanding not your judgment. we are God’s workmanship too… so help instead of laughter . . . love instead of cruelty . . . care instead of gossips.

We are Persons with different Abilities . . . we need your understanding, care, and love.

Stop the stigma against Cerebral Palsy…

Stop the stigma against AD/HD, Down Syndrome, HIV Patients, Blind, Mute, Deaf . . . disabilities!

we need your help! Help us stop the stigma!

God bless you!

I love my work #GoForwardBinanFoundation

It had been a surprise seeing me working in a real office with real office mates. It was surreal but I enjoyed the pressure of capturing the smiles of those people. Go Forward Biñan Foundation is a non-profit organization that catered the needs of every Biñanense.

I enjoyed the company of new friends too. I hope I could encourage them in every way I can. I considered them  family. 🙂

In the span of two weeks, I was part of:

  • Distribution of Tricycle-Type Wheelchairs
  • Pre-elementary Graduation ceremonies
  • Assessing a SPED school
  • Gatecrashed another department’s birthday party LOL

Thank You, Father for giving me the opportunity to experience employment 🙂 Thank You for the crossroad with Ms. Des Dimaguila. Thank You Father God for another field to sow! You gave me a very nice birthday gift even though its one month late . . . Your clock is always on time. I know I know.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Ms. Des for making all of these possible. I thank the Lord for your life. It is truly an inspiration.

I got to know more of my officemates (sounds legit! because it is legit!) We had bonding sessions during lunch breaks and coffee breaks.

To God be the glory!

Be blessed by being a blessing to others. 🙂

Divine Appointment with Mrs. Des Dimaguila: Meeting A Woman of Substance

Supposedly, I was just in the municipal hall to get my PWD ID before we go to PCSO to submit the requirement for Dad; but the Lord had other plans for me and my mom. We were about to go out from the PWD office when I saw a sophisticated lady looking at me; she stared at me and asked me several questions which led to a job, a volunteer work which I prayed for. So, she offered me to write for her; I grabbed the opportunity right away because I wanted to help the community especially the people with disabilities residing in Binan. Afterwards, I saw myself in a desk of GAD Office.

I think, the Lord worked in our meeting because they needed a writer. To cut the story short, I started a real job today!

I met new friends too; Echo, JN, Ruv and many more. Yay!

But wait, there’s more . . . I was about to be interviewed for the said position but we have to go to a school in Sto Domingo with Ms. Des, Ruv, JN, Echo, and my ever supportive mom!

We assessed what SPED schools need. And that I really enjoyed. Having been in a SPED classroom with SPED kids amazed me; it’s really a divine appointment.

I want to thank Ms. Des for the trust she gave me. It’s really something to look forward to.

We met people by chance; or it could be God’s perfect time for another work to do, missions. To God be the glory!
