Hello, My name is Sheryl. :)
I am creating this account because I badly need your help. Not long ago, my Papang (dad) passed away after 4 years of battling pneumonia. I was in my 3rd year Education course that time. My Mother used to work as a helper in Makati Metro Manila for 7 long years. We were left under our Papang's care for all those years. We lived in a small village or hillside in Sultan Kudarat called TANANZANG (Lutayan) were killings seems normal for us. I have 4 siblings, and none of them graduated college. We grew up moving from place to place for our safety. I'm lucky enough that I was able to reach my 4th Year in college, though I wasn't able to finish it because for I was left with no choice. My Yeh (Mom) can no longer afford for my tuition and day to day allowance, that's when I decided to look for alternate ways to provide for my needs but I end up molested.
Life hasn't been good for me that moment, as I failed in most of my major subjects, in order to pass I have to provide for my professor's demands. It was the most difficult time of my life, going to school empty handed and coming home broken hearted. I totally lost my concentration, I felt I was being left behind. Maybe because I had no one where I can run to that time. hayyyy (deep breathing)
Fast forward to my story, I went with my Mother here in Manila to work knowing I can save for my tuition fee for the next school year. After a month of struggling with the employer, my Mom got kicked out and sent home, maybe because she was hurt seeing me working as KASAMBAHAY (Helper) instead of going to school which I totally understand, that's when I decided to a take charge of the responsibility of providing for my family needs.
I left work after 2 years of suffering from a very cruel employer, I lived with a friend whom I only knew thru Facebook.
It's been 4 years now, and I still yearn of going back to school and have a stable job where I can no longer suffer emotionally for self pity because of humiliation and discrimination by the people around.
