What Is Lia Ocampo’s Inspiring Filipino Story?
Lia arrived in the “Big Apple” or New York City in July 2012, with her things packed up. She left the Philippines behind and migrated to the US. Lia spent 18 years working for the US Embassy with a chance to bring over her children.
People often wanted to know why she chose New York. She was going to work for the United Nations, but that was not in her destiny. One disappointing setback always meant that she fought even harder next time, and she took setbacks as a blessing and never accepted a defeat.
Many times, no matter how hard we try to make something happen, it doesn’t. Sometimes this could be because of external factors like politics or other circumstantial things beyond our control. This can be very difficult and we should accept defeat once in a while to regain our energy and analyze the situation but don’t worry there’s always a silver lining! Failure can be your best friend if you analyze why something failed and use that as motivation! This is exactly how Lia took the challenge.
Lia Ocampo has an admirable vision that encompasses a number of different perspectives. It’s her goal to create a brilliant future, which she believes includes motivating others and creating stronger communities. Lia has always attempted to make positive change in the world through speaking out on important issues or volunteering where she can.
