When it comes to reading documents, I have to admit that I’m very lazy. Give it to me in bullets and I’d be happy to read it. So lately, I’ve been reading up on the Paris Agreement and how important it is for countries to ratify it. Upon my research, I came across the summary of the agreement on the UNFCCC page and decided to make a graphic art out of it to spark more interest and conversations.
Over 40,000 people showed up to the San Diego Women’s March and walked together in peace. We MUST keep the momentum going!

This month, I decided to join Bayani On Wheels team to help build houses for the Gawad Kalinga community in Gabaldon, Nueva Ecija. Our mission was to bike from Manila to Gabaldon in 2 days, covering 200kms of flat paved roads with some inclines. Day 1: Manila to Cabanatuan From Quezon City, we passed through EDSA, then into the cities of Valenzuela, Marilao, Sta.

Some parts were under construction so we were forced to share the road with speeding cars, buses, and trucks. Warning: Watch out for speeding trucks and buses. They do not slow down for anyone.

On October 20, 1895, Annie Londonderry was the first woman who biked around the world. “I am a journalist and ‘a new woman,’” she wrote, “if that term means that I believe I can do anything that any man can do.” Today, we have more women taking on the road to cycle. These women are road SHEroes. The presence of women cycling on the road not only encourages more people to bike, it also brings different issues such as safety, fitness, and environment into everyday conversations. Women on wheels symbolize courage and empowerment. For them, changing your lifestyle means changing the world. Get to know your road #SHEro and what she fights for through cycling.
