A Sense of Hope

“I have been given a chance to go Back to Future. A chance to see what my life could actually be if 35 years ago my father wasn’t given the opportunity to emigrate from the Philippines. That could have easily been me today. The Bulacan Project has given me huge awareness of what blessings I have been given and the power I have to make a difference for my people and the world around me.”

Vinelli Rumbaua

Enspire Member Since: 2010
Life Purpose
To give to those who have been cheated out of life. I believe everyone is entitled a right to have food on the table, the right to an education, and the right to feel part of this world we live in as an equal. People should be able to live without struggle, and if there is any way I may be able to assist, I will always go the extra mile.
Passion
To be able to connect to everyone. Whether is it through art, poetry, song, or dance, I want to be able to communicate even if it's through smiles.
Most Enspiring Moment
When the children in the Philippines were playing with a rubber glove and a straw. There was about 3-5 little kids having the time of their lives blowing air into this glove and becoming bigger and smaller. It really hit me that it's not about what you have in life, it's about what you make of it.

Aimee Laurel

Enspire Member Since: 2009
Life Purpose
To be an example, to stand for the idea that anything can happen, and everything is a choice - meaning if we want to change anything in this world, we have to decide to do it.
Passion
My passion lies in communicating between people, between ideas, and connecting all of it together to create meaning.
Most Enspiring Moment
When my father gave me the best piece of advice. It can be easy to devalue advice from your parents, but somehow this one stuck: he told me, "Aimee: get an education. Learn. It is one thing that they can't take away from you."
