Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Editor’s Letter -


We were floored and moved by top pho­tog and Cosmo fa­vorite Shaira Luna when she spoke at Cosmo’s Fun Fear­less Life event in Cebu re­cently. The for­mer child prodigy (she was one of the ge­nius Promil Kids who rose to fame in the mid-90s) told us her touch­ing story about how she strug­gled to break free from from her par­ents’ and so­ci­ety’s ex­pec­ta­tions. Groomed since child­hood to be­come the coun­try’s youngest doc­tor, she bravely dropped out of col­lege to do what she re­ally wanted—to be­come a pho­tog­ra­pher. Shaira in­spired our Cebu read­ers that day to sim­ply forge their own paths in pur­suit of their dreams for a hap­pier and more ful­fill­ing life.
