Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
Her life as a peace and human rights advocate began in June 2005 when she started working for the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process as a Project Development Officer for the Government of the Republic of the Philippines Monitoring Committee (GRP-MC) mandated to monitor and ensure compliance to the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL). This brought her all over the Philippines as she supervised and coordinated the project for the continuing education and information campaign for the government security forces on human rights and international humanitarian law. Aside from these, she coordinated and monitored awareness raising and capability-building efforts as part of the the establishment of local monitoring bodies and peace networks. These monitoring bodies and peace networks are community-based mechanisms to help address human rights violations and provide education on peace and development strategies at the grassroots level.
Being young in the field of peace and human rights advocacy, she has undertaken various training to deepen her knowledge and skills in peace, conflict, HR and IHL. Among them, the Second Southeast and East Asian Teaching Session on International Humanitarian Law (SEATS – IHL) jointly organized by the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and the Training Workshop on Monitoring and Documentation of HR and IHL violations, Peace and Conflict and Negotiation and Mediation sponsored by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process, among others. She submitted her application to the Rotary World Peace Fellowship to enable her to be a more capable and valuable peace and human rights worker, which she hopes will contribute to the Rotary’s objective of advancing research, teaching, publication, and knowledge of issues, peace, goodwill, causes of conflict and world understanding.
It is now her fervent desire to make a greater person of herself by being able to do more for individuals and communities in conflict-affected areas and to empower them to work and fight for the peace they are entitled to. Furthermore, it is her desire to make a greater nation of her country by working at building and keeping an environment where individuals and communities are able to fully develop their potentials and progress freely, exercising their rights with due regard for the rights of others being equally mindful of their responsibilities. By keeping the peace in her corner of the world, it is her hope that she will be able to do her share in making this world a finer world to live in.
