Superwoman tricks of the trade

MANILA, Philippines — Who is the modern-day Filipina? She could be anything from the skateboard enthusiast next door to the poised and graceful ballerina applauded on the stage. She could be a stay-at-home mom who always makes sure her kids are well fed and happy or a high-profile CEO at an advertising company. 

What makes all these Filipinas modern is their dynamic quality. Gone are the days of the cookie-cutter Maria Clara personality, where girls were one thing and nothing more. These days, women take on as many roles as they can manage, like mother/ entrepreneur/ wife/ yogi/ daughter/ boss/ consultant/ friend. Which begs the question: how do they find the time for them all? 

Most of the time, what women accomplish on a day-to-day basis can really be nothing short of astounding. In this day and age, women could truly become superwomen. 

The Philippines is a nation of superwomen. You can find amazing, multi-faceted ladies who are achievers as well as down-to-earth individuals. Mother/ sister/ cousin/ neighbor/ girlfriend/ wife/ boss/ officemate — all of these could describe the wonderful women in your life, or it could simply describe one. That is how diverse the Filipina is.
