"From a small island upbringing to global advocacy, my journey through hardship and resilience has shown me the strength of community and the power of perseverance. Together, we can shine a light on the invaluable contributions of domestic workers and fight for the recognition and justice we deserve."


My name is Jean, and I had a unique upbringing on a small island where my father was the only man in our household. I grew up as the fourth of six sisters, and thanks to a scholarship, I attended university and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Management Accounting. After completing my studies, I joined the Millennium Challenge Corporation, a non-governmental organisation focused on assisting underprivileged countries. The Philippines was one of the beneficiaries of this project.

Driven by significant financial need, I seized an opportunity to work abroad in Cyprus as a factory worker in 2020. My life here took a difficult turn, when my employer brought me to the UK in 2023. Fortunately, I was able to escape the abusive situation with the help of the Voice of Domestic Workers, an organisation devoted to aiding individuals in similar circumstances. Now, I am an active member of the Voice of Domestic Workers, specifically involved in the education group. As part of this initiative, I aim to bring attention to the real experiences of domestic workers and highlight the vital role we play in society. My goal is to make a positive impact in the lives of domestic workers worldwide and advocate for justice and recognition of our contributions.
