(Con't.) I replied to Caroline Manguiat-Ubalde: QUOTE RE: Grace Poe. Once people get to know her better, they will realize that she is very intelligent, as she was always on the Honor Roll in the elementary and high school at Assumption College (according to some of her classmates, including my daughter). Yet, even during her school days, she remained simple & friendly & never bragged about her parents being the supposed King & Queen of Filipino movies. She did not like to become an actress or even a worker in the film industry. She chose to study & live a simple life as a "soccer Mom" in the U.S. until her father ran in the now-infamous 2010 presidential election when she returned to the homeland to help in the campaign. At this stage, she is a fast learner and she can attract the help & support of the best minds among the 12-million strong Overseas-Filipino communities because she is a former OFW and she is one of them. Even now that she is a senator, GP has not changed her demeanor & she still seeks the company of her elementary-&-high-school buddies. Even Filipino leaders who studied and partly lived in the U.S, esp. Bicolnon "geniuses" like Raul Roco, Jess Robredo, Chiz Escudero, paid only lip service to Overseas Filipinos. I should know because I met with them several times and sent them our ideas for development but they never took us seriously. Grace Poe hopefully will listen to the Overseas-Filipino ideas, proposals and reform agenda, as she is really one of us. UNQUOTE.
