Rose Ann


“I want to challenge myself to do something that I haven’t done and that is being able to speak in public confidently. If I can speak well, I will be able to deliver a message coming from my heart through my story to make an impact and inspire others.”


My name is Rose Ann and I'm 29 years old. I come from the province of Negros Occidental Philippines. Even though I was young, I noticed and felt the problems that my parents were facing and struggling with financially to support my six siblings and myself. I became a working student at the age of 13 so I didn’t have to rely on my parents who were already suffering from poverty. I had to stop studying at college in order to work, and I worked as a domestic worker because I had no degree to be accepted in other better paid jobs. I had to work in different houses to survive my family’s needs and at the same time supported my sister to finish her studies until university. 


I was lucky to be employed in a big company in the Philippines, but during the pandemic in 2020, I lost my job. The fastest way to get a job after the pandemic was to work abroad as a domestic worker. I’m proud of my domestic work because I could provide for my family and most importantly for my son.
