Being an educator and a counselor, there are two social concerns which I consider close to my heart.
- EDUCATION. Given the current state of education in the country, I try my best to do what I can, in any way that I can. I teach would-be teachers at the college level and I try to expose them with the realities of the system. It has been eye-opening, frustrating yet enriching.
- WOMEN’S ISSUES. I have worked with abused women, particularly survivors of domestic violence and rape. And it’s really frustrating but challenging. In my own little way, I try to help contribute to women’s empowerment and emancipation through counseling and consciousness-raising.
