The Philippines has become a body-exporting country. Why not? We are ranked among the top workers in the world. But what are the social costs of that?
Our country is being brain drained... we leave our families...our children are being taken care of by nannies.
But what choice have we got?
2 years ago, i was an fresh grad stuck to the thought that working abroad was the only way to professional, financial, and personal freedom.
When I was finally in another country, I thought i was happy. I thought I was finally realizing my dream. But i was wrong. There were social costs i had to pay and i wasn't ready for that.
I came back to the Philippines. I was changed. I started to actively involve myself in looking for ways to realize my dream without having to do unnecessary sacrifices.
I am so happy I found one.
