Literature has taught us that every great story is nothing without a compelling beginning. Whether it is an imposing “In the beginning” or a more romantic “Once upon a time,” stories, however it plays out, all start from a seed of an idea, eventually setting the story in motion, exciting readers to no end. But when it comes down to it, we will always find ourselves looking back at page one, constantly flipping to the present and maybe eventual future, just to remember where all things began.
In celebration of MEGA's 25th anniversary, allow me to wax nostalgic on my very own stories.
It started out as a childhood dream.
I looked up to the women I saw on stage and I told myself "One day I'm going to be like them." It wasn't easy, I had a not so stellar career as an actress/model but kept working anyway to support my family. And after three attempts in Bb. Pilipinas I finally got the ticket to represent the Philippines at the Miss Universe stage. Then on that night I saw the stars align in the most surprising way. A dream came true for myself & for the Philippines. This is my MEGA Story. Now, what is yours?
