I met my Filipino mentor in first year high school at the heights of the popularity of
Top of the world, The first time ever I saw your face, I don't wanna lose you, If we try,
How can I tell her, And I love you so, Skyline pigeon, To love somebody, Alone again
naturally, Touch me in the morning, You are the sunshine of my life, Yellow brick road,
Rosemary blue, Solitaire, and many more. I was 13, she was 26.
SOLLY as fondly called by her co-teachers and friends is a good singer and the most
favorite where I attended my secondary years somewhere in Laguna. She served as my
sole inspiration as I was away from my mom and dad because of Martial Law. My favorite
personification is still my friend to date as we have constant communication through
all the years. Just the other night, she called me and we talked for nearly an hour.
I will always appreciate what she did to make me a better student at a time I needed
someone the most. People come and go but she remains in my existence in her best capacity.
