Some of you may already know this but for those of you who don’t, I have been a Filipino folk dancer for 15 years with a not-for-profit organization known as Folklorico Filipino Canada (FFC) and for the last 10 years, a principal dancer.

We have performed on stages in Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, & Estonia to name a few. A lot of time and dedication from the production team, parents and alunmi dancers to keep the FFC afloat. To them, I am forever grateful.
Without them, I would not have been given the amazing opporunity to share my love for traditional Philippine folklore as the Cultural Leader for a group of women performing an adaptation of Filipino Folk Dance at the #PanAm #ClosingCeremonies. Today, we learned that we will be sharing the stage with Kanye West, Pitbull & Serena Ryder!
