Australia Awards empowers Filipino teacher with global perspective on educating Filipino learners 
A Filipino teacher reflects on her Australia Awards journey 



What lessons are you excited to bring back to our country? 

 

My Australia Awards journey has opened doors of unlimited opportunities for me to grow professionally and personally. My university enables me to think beyond the box and upgrades my teaching competencies as an educator. It has also enabled me to have a global perspective on educating Filipino learners. Through Australia Awards, I am able to expand my network of people who share the same vision of making a positive impact in our respective countries. I am inspired to share success stories from diverse cultures around the world.  

 

How do you intend to make a difference in the Philippines after your Australia Awards journey? 

 

I believe that every child deserves to be educated and that education is a powerful tool to fight poverty and juvenile delinquency in our country. When I go back home, I will reach out to the underprivileged urban poor especially the out-of-school youths. Through collaboration with DepEd Alternative Learning System (ALS), I will help in providing our Filipino learners a chance to access and complete their basic education. The future of our country is in the hands of our youth; therefore, we have to equip them to become the next-generation leaders.
