I started as a lady guard in AIM for almost 10 years. Afterwards, they got me as a telephone operator then eventually as a receptionist for 20 years now. I get to meet different people like ambassadors, top executives, foreign students, and, sometimes, even presidents of the Philippines. Even if I don’t travel abroad, I can see different people and discover different cultures. Also, even if the students are already professionals, they still treat me as their ‘Ate Cecile’ and still remember me when they come back.
