Covering Tatak EDSA, the #EDSA25 Celebration
February 25, 2011
Today is the 25th anniversary of People Power celebration. On my hand is the People Power Commemorative coin (10 pesos) that I kept after all these years. Holding this commemorative coin is quite symbolic. The hope of the country lies in our hands, the power of an active citizenry. The spirit of EDSA 1 showed our capacity for greatness and willingness to sacrifice for the country’s good. It is inherent in each one of us. I thought it was enough to have a wonderful president and let her do the job. I failed to be vigilant, remaining apathetic about politics. I know now that the hope of our country lies in an empowered citizenry.
I was eight months pregnant with my first baby, Lauren when EDSA 1 happened. She is an EDSA 1 baby.
Too bad I was not able to join the People Power in EDSA. But this time…25 years later, I am given media access together with some #Blogwatch bloggers to cover the 25th anniversary of EDSA 1 People Power celebration . Schedule is here. I will live blog here if I can but for now, here is what Twitter is talking about #EDSA25

Her personal blogs such as aboutmyrecovery.com (parenting) , pinoyfoodblog.com (recipes), techiegadgets.com (gadgets) and benguetarabica.coffee keep her busy outside of Blog Watch.
I am an advocate. I am NOT neutral. I will NOT give social media mileage to members of political clans, epal, a previous candidate for the same position and those I believe are a waste of taxpayers' money.
I do not support or belong to any political party. I was part of accredited media covering the Office of the Vice President and Leni Robredo as she ran as a presidential aspirant in the 2022 National and local elections.
On August 5, 2021, YouTube announced that I was selected as one of 50 Program participants of its Creator Program for Independent Journalists
She was a Senior Consultant for ALL media engagements for the PCOO-led Committee on Media Affairs & Strategic Communications (CMASC) under the ASEAN 2017 National Organizing Council from January 4 -July 5, 2017. Having been an ASEAN advocate since 2011, she has written extensively about the benefits of the ASEAN community and as a region of opportunities on Blog Watch and aboutmyrecovery.com.
