Makati City, Philippines
I work in project development at the biggest real estate firm in the Philippines, Ayala Land Inc. I currently live in Makati City—the financial center of the country—where everyone is always smiling, where elegantly-dressed yuppies ride colorful jeepneys to go to work, and where driving to the next block at rush hour takes at least an hour. I hope to take my graduate studies abroad, but only once I have gained significant work experience. Until then, I continue to learn and grow as a person and make a mark in my country, while keeping my friends and family close to heart.
