I am Nenette Nielsen, 46 years old. An employee of a private company in Makati City.
I would like to say thank you to my cousin Purita Banila, she has been there all this time throughout my life journey. I’m proud to say that we are best of friends. She’s my consultant in anything and everything about life. She has been my kids tutor and has been very helpful.
She has been working as a teacher for almost 15 years already, 11 years teaching nursery in a private school and 4 years up to present teaching grade school at Barangka Elementary School in Marikina City. She’s now 47 years old. As a teacher, she also does volunteer work like summer camps and remedial classes. She has 2 kids who are both in college and her husband just recently passed away. We all know how hard it is sending kids in college specially in a private school. I know that she’s doing everything to make sure they both graduate and find a good job after.
I can say that I can always count on her for whatever problem comes my way. She has been a good listener and adviser. We never run out of topics to talk about – from art, food, places, politics. Maybe because we are close. I look up to her because she’s a positive person and always has a ready plan in every upcoming family occasion.
In return, I try to do the same to her – honest, caring and also a good friend. To be there anytime if she needs someone to talk to.
I am very thankful having her as my cousin. What we call OUR ME TIME is our coffee break time. We both love brewed coffee over chit chats.
I look forward that you will choose my story for her to receive your surprise coffee package!
