you go girl!
woohoo, i just learned from my highschool yahoogroup-mate that we won the miss international 2005 beauty contest and i was just so proud when i read how she answered her question :
Q: "what do you say to the people of the world who have typecastedfilipinos as nannies?"
A: "i take no offence on being typecasted as a nanny. But i do takeoffence that the educated people of the world have somehow denegratedthe true sense and meaning of what a nanny is. let me tell you what sheis. she is someone who gives more than she takes. She is someone youtrust to look after the very people most precious to you- your child, the elderly, yourself. she is the one who has made aliving out of caring and loving other people. so to those who havetypecasted us as nannies, thank you.it is a testament to the loving and caring culture of the Filipinopeople.and for that,i am forever proud and grateful of my roots and culture."
GREAT ANSWER! YOU GO GIRL! i've never been this proud being a filipino ^_^
