Edcel Angelo J. Salangsang – CSR and Sales Specialist
I am from the City of Golden friendship here in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines. I have been married for 2 years and blessed with a baby girl. I was a product of a broken family, which is really hard – longing for the love of a father. But my mum supported us financially and emotionally, and she is a father and mother at the same time. She inspires us and gives us counsel, and taught us how to work hard. I learned that life is not easy but with God, everything is possible. Poverty is a common problem these days. I strive hard to get out of it and provide necessities for my family. We will do everything we can, in Gods way to achieve a higher objective in life.
The most significant work I had experienced is being a missionary for two years and serve my mission in Tacloban. That experience shaped my character and my personality as a disciple and follower of Jesus Christ. From that event of my life, I saw people of different status, on how they raised their family from a financial crisis. The higher achievements you will have the better opportunities you will get. I believe that God has a plan in each of us, and we have our own timetable. Our decision today determines our destiny, and I want to make sure that my plan is in accordance with the will of the Lord.
I discovered before that I have computer skills when I was an internet attendant of my Aunt Internet Café business. With these skills, this will be an advantage of today’s higher demand for workers in this era of competitive technology.
I was once a sales agent for a telecommunications company – a challenging experience to be able to communicate and persuade people to buy our product.
Another opportunity I grabbed was being hired as a Reports and Analytic Coordinator and admin in the office. Because of this working experience, this enhanced my skills, proficiency in MS Excel, data entry and organisation.
I believe that if I work hard and also love my job, amazing things will happen. We all have dreams and ambitions in life. I remember a quote from one of our Church leaders, he said: “If today you are a little better than you were yesterday, then that’s enough”. It is like climbing a ladder – step by step towards progression and success.
