Chicdriven Speaker

Around two weeks ago, I was blessed enough to have been invited to speak in front of a crowd at Alabang Town Center and talk about my struggles, challenges, and workaround about being a single Mom. It was a little nerve wracking because I was with other women who were far more impressive than I was and they led perfect lives, you know, happily married with kids and yet making a mark in the fields they were in.

I was far from being half of what they were so when I was invited to be part of the panel, I was really grateful. I just hoped that I would actually make sense and be able to share something that was worth listening to.


The talk went by pretty fast and I think I did pretty well if I were to based it on the reaction of the audience. I was able to give out pointers that I felt could help women and Moms out there who are struggling with their time in balancing life, being a Mom, and being a woman.

I hope that I can get more chances to do these kind of things. I feel that my experience can actually help out others. After all, they did say that learning from your mistake is smart but learning from others mistake is wise.

  5. I was just thinking the other day about how I would like to get back into public speaking and hopefully start doing some motivational speaking. I am so happy for you that you got to share your story. There are a lot of single moms and getting to listen to someone who knows the struggles and can offer some encouragement is great.
