Apayao and my Mom

Yesterday, performed my first public role as GDP Business Development Manager in front of schoolchildren, teachers, and superintendents of the Department of Education in the province of Apayao.  In doing so, I am acknowledge my northern roots, with Mommy being an Ilocano and with myself surrounded by her fellow Ilocano-speakers.  This first public role paid homage to my northern roots and I beam with pride for my Mom, for belonging to her.
