Sister Mary Christine Tan, RGS, was born to an affluent family, but she chose to serve the poor by living in the slums of Manila and help them in their fight for justice.
Modern Heroes for the Filipino Youth are true stories of Filipinos from all walks of life who chose to make a difference. There are currently 24 titles in this inspirational series.
ALEXINE: I read this entire series in one sitting and it was invigorating! These aren't the usual heroic stories you read online, this is a meatier selection which won't get the same viral interest. I highly recommend the entire series for the family.
