Yes, VONJOBI, I am a Filipina and I will always be one. I will continue doing exemplary works as a Filipina Teacher here in America because I want to give glory to my country. I am involving myself in this movement.
Yes, I am one of the Filipinos with the Great American Dream. I am one of the Filipinos who set out on their journey to foreign lands to fulfill their dreams. I am one of the Filipinos who have the aspiration of coming to America and earn dollars to realize the Great American Dream. I am one of the Filipinos coming to the United States to uplift their social and financial condition and to help those whom they left behind in their own country.
"I may take advantage of whatever opportunities come my way. But I will come home. A borderless world doesn't preclude the idea of a home. I'm a Filipino, and I'll always be one. It isn't about just geography; it isn't about boundaries. It's about giving back to the country that shaped me.
And that's going to be more important to me than seeing snow outside my windows on a bright Christmas morning. (“Blonde and Blue Eyes”, Patricia Evangelista)"
I still dream the Filipino Dream. Who will make it happen?
