Props to Puso To Puso: Second Episode!

This past Saturday, August 15th, we were pleased to present the second episode of our three-part “Puso To Puso Talks” which was our organization’s response to having to postpone our 2020 Annual Fly Pinays Leadership Summit.

Prioritizing the need to continue holding space for our Fly Pinays community, our student leaders conceived of our “Puso To Puso Talks” which were to be short, 60-90 minute live episodes focusing on one of our three Fly Pinays themes: Mental Health, Ethnic Identity, and Personal Development.

Last Saturday, on the topic of “Personal Finance” we were joined by guest speaker Derica Malaca, a trained Financial Coach and Nonprofit Professional, that shared how she paid off her personal debt with a series of different strategies related to tucking away a percentage of her income, cost-saving, and looking for ways to passively grow her money.

In addition to hearing and learning from Derica, we would like to give special love to the many, many Fly Pinays organizers that helped to ring in the success of our second “Puso To Puso”:

  • Omilani Alarcon, our hostess with the mostest, our emcee!
  • Adelina Tancioco, Founder, Surrendered Healing for leading our Grounding Activity and Opening Meditation
  • Mer Curry, Founder, AdvancED Consulting for leading our Closing Activity
  • And to our Fly Pinays organizing committee: Marissa Martinez (Fly Pinays Director), Isabel Bagsik, Jessica Yumul, Camille Ann Valerio, Chloe Agdipa, Jenn Cayanan, Michelle Dionisio, and Maxine Gutierrez.

In community,
