is a free­lance writer and fresh­man at the up Col­lege of law. The for­mer Cosmo in­tern and for­mer NGO worker wrote “When Change is Com­ing (From you),” p.86 be­cause she be­lieved she had an im­por­tant story to tell her fel­low Cosmo girls. “Writ­ing it was a good re­minder that even or­di­nary cit­i­zens are ca­pa­ble of mak­ing a dif­fer­ence, although it comes with sac­ri­fices. A lot of us want to see pos­i­tive changes in our coun­try but aren’t sure how to be part of it or where to look. Our re­spon­si­bil­ity to help goes beyond our ba­sic du­ties such as vot­ing and pay­ing taxes. We need to go the ex­tra mile, too.” “We Cosmo Girls are in the best po­si­tion to help up­lift the lives of our fel­low Filipinos. If you’re read­ing this right now, it means you’re def­i­nitely more #blessed than most. Change doesn’t hap­pen overnight or come from just one per­son. It should def­i­nitely be­gin with each of us be­cause we are still a de­vel­op­ing coun­try, and there’s no bet­ter timeto start than now.” Cos­mopoli­tan july 2016
