Jaysee becomes a Story Catcher for a cause
I went out a bit earlier from work than usual last August 27. I was going to attend a blogging event.
I am part of the writer’s circle for a project of Dilaab Foundation. Knowing that it was just a very healthy walk from IT Park, I decided to proceed immediately St. Jerome Bible Center in Seminario Mayor de San Carlos.
I arrived a bit later than 6 after being lost for quite awhile. With constant communication from my Cebu Blogger Society (CBS) friends who arrived earlier, I found myself in awe of the place. It reminded me of my old school or something. I felt like a grade school kid once again.
We were greeted by the Project Assistant, the very bubbly Ms. Jenny Tan. She was very friendly and elegant. She had a vision for the country and the world and I'm glad I could be part of it. She invited us to have the chance to change lives one story at a time and who was I to turn that down. Aside from dinner, we were even treated to an authentic European espresso which had very interesting taste.
What excites me about this opportunity is the fact that we are asked to write a story of the real people we will feature. It will then appear on the foundation's web site and magazine. I love heartwarming anecdotes and life stories because I think inspiration is what makes us human. How we deal with our lives still remains a mystery for most and being able to be invited into someone's life to help share his or her story gives blogging a whole new different perspective.
The meeting was mostly about introducing ourselves, conceptualizing the project, getting to know the Foundation and most of all fooling around. When CBS members like Kuya Mark, Ate Wil, Angeli, Ate Mikyu, Kuya Iggy and Ate Agnes gather, fun is sure to follow. It was also my first time to meet Ate Milafel.
