Marian Aims to Inspire Other Women With Snow Crystal White Tomato

Marian Rivera is definitely one of the biggest stars we have today.  Yet, no matter how famous she is, Marian remains humble. In fact, she isn’t ashamed to admit that she herself faces some challenges not only as a human being but also as a woman. I learned about some of these when I attended the launch of Vida Nutriscience’s Snow Crystal White Tomato held at the New World Hotel in Makati last July 27. Marian was also officially welcomed as the product’s endorser in the said event. During the event, Marian shared how she began her journey in the show business–from joining pageants as a child and as a teenager to doing some TV commercials that eventually led to more and bigger opportunities.

His Voice Sounded Like a Robot’s and His Story Will Inspire You

Many were surprised as a man whose voice sounded like a robot’s went up the altar during ABS-CBN’s Seven Last Words last March 25, 2016. The said man introduced himself as Engr. Emer Rojas, Global Cancer Ambassador and founder of New Vois Association of the Philippines (NVAP) Engr. Rojas soon explained why he had such a voice. He confessed that he lost his vocal cords due to stage 4 laryngeal cancer. He underwent an operation in 2003 and since then, he has used an assisting device that helped him have a voice. Despite everything, Engr. Rojas considered himself a lucky man. When he was diagnosed of cancer, he was told that he had only five years to live. He was also made aware that only 20% among stage 4 laryngeal cancer patients would usually survive. In other words, he was convinced that he has been blessed with a new life and he could not think of anything but to use it to make a difference in other people’s lives. Surrendering to God Engr. Rojas got …
