A retired teacher who continued to live with optimism despite having to work as a volunteer and a cleaner of classrooms to provide for her family will share her touching story this Saturday (September 16) in “Maalaala Mo Kaya.”
In her community, Pacita (Chanda Romero) is known for her bravery and dedication to her work and her loved ones. After being raped and left by the father of her son, Anton (Aljur Abrenica), she successfully juggled her roles as a teacher and a good mother to her son.
Her son’s welfare remained her priority until she retired, as she used her retirement pay to build a house and buy a tricycle for him. However, she seemed to have lost everything when her house got burned down by a fire, which prompted her to go back to school as a janitress.
How did she overcome this trial in her life?
