Why did you choose to become a broadcast journalist?

The fulfillment of telling stories: about people, about events that shape history, that mold opinions, that make a difference

What do you consider as the turning point in your career?

When Jiggy got hit during the May 1 siege, I was literally “forced”, under the circumstances, to stand in, and deliver my first live report.

If you weren’t in media, what kind of career would you have?

Probably a car dealer

What is your biggest frustration/ regret?

That I am only one voice that can only do so much to effect change in the rotten state of affairs in this country

What is the biggest lesson you have learned as a broadcast journalist?

Every person, no matter how seemingly inconsequential, has an interesting story to tell. .

What is your most unforgettable moment/experience as a journalist in GMA?

Living like a soldier for a day in the jungles of Basilan

What are you most proud of?

Really, it’s being with GMA. I’m proud of the way we do things around here. It’s not perfect, but it’s working quite well.

What do you still want to achieve?

Ultimately, it is to be respected not only as a credible journalist, but as a person who has a genuine heart for people.

What is your advice to aspiring broadcast journalists?

Speak. Write and develop that true passion to communicate.
