Bulacan Gardens founder Margarita Santiago only finished third grade, but she was a brilliant businesswoman. She started as a sidewalk vendor selling plants in the public market and continued to work hard to build her business.
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 22 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.
