tried to fit in the town’s Mountain Province General Comprehensive High School and at the
University of the Philippines College Baguio. After college, she became a research assistant
in organic farming at Benguet State University, an educator in a private school in Dagupan
City, Pangasinan and in a public school in Baguio city, Pines City National High school.
