Because YOLO

What does humanity mean to you?

A good friend once said, “Humanity is being able to empathize and care for another human without asking anything in return.” I truly believe in this, because good intentions are intentions, but good deeds are deeds. At the same time, for me, humanity comes when we learn to understand everyone’s situation before telling on them. The freedom and explicit acceptance without giving big doubts on someone’s capacity to survive the diversity of life. It’s letting people move to where they want to go and helping them grow in simplicity. Humanity includes everyone living on Earth. And its more like letting everyone live in harmony with no limits, but with fair guidance to produce good and kindhearted people.” – Mari Lucris Diploma Bernardo,HR,Traveler

 

The Yuppie

 

Mari Lucris Diploma Bernardo, born in Quezon City, lived in Cavite for 5 years and Iloilo. She studied at Assumption Iloilo since Prep to 4th year Highschool but graduated at Central Philippine University taking up BS Psychology.

“I have two nicknames, childhood is Angel and Lucy in highschool. Oh yah, my birthday, February 8, 1989. Just do the math to get my age. Hahaha!”, she said during the interview.  She was an agent for one year and a month at Convergys Shaw, she is currently an HR Assistant for AMA Corporate Office. She is what you call a typical yuppie, living the corporate life.

After a year of working as an agent, she felt the need to leave and explore the things she only hear or read about. So, through her friends encouragement, “ I started traveling with my friend October 2013. I really dont have the means but my close friend made me realize its a good feeling and you’ll learn a lot, not just the environment but everything about life. I travel with friends yah but I’m planning to do a backpacking solo trip before the year ends. I can’t go with big groups but I am helping myself out of it. Well yah. I’m a starter for traveling but I hope to travel more in the coming days.”
