NAME: Janelle Lazo Tee
MUNICIPALITY OR CITY: Davao
Describe your childhood/growing years: I grew up with strict parents who carefully guarded us with set of rules to obey. My mom is very particular when it comes to cleanliness. As a child, all you want to do is play and have fun! I had a different one.. it's play, have fun and CLEAN! She trained us to always make our surroundings neat and clean. She would always tell us that everything starts at home and cleanliness speaks a lot about your personality.
In life if you know how to be responsible by cleaning the mess around then, you'll be able to handle life's turbulent flows. Big things starts from simple and small ones.
The lessons that I've learned then are the ones I still live by now. Respect your parents, be responsible, give & share your blessings
What lessons did you learn from your childhood/growing years?: Respect your parents. They always know what's best for you. We may have our own decisions in life but, we should respect their ideas and opinions as well. Be responsible. We are accountable with our own actions and decisions. Life is tough. We should always have that initiative to be responsible about everything. Give and share your blessings. You must be willing to give wholeheartedly in order for you to enthusiastically receive as well. Share your blessings to your family, friends and those who are in need. Be an instrument of inspiration.
What is your most memorable moment?: My most memorable moment is when my mom was rushed to the hospital on Valentines Day last year. It was a unique way of celebrating it that despite the problem still, our family was one in praying and supporting one another.
What is your environmental advocacy?:
My advocacy is Organic Vegetable Farming – turning biodegradable wastes into organic fertilizers.
I chose this advocacy because it won't just help the environment to be clean and green, but it will also help hone the entrepreneurship skills of people and will introduce a healthy lifestyle to participants as well. – Rappler.com
