Erika Maybelle Cuizon – Customer Service Support

erika-cuizon-vaI am a Registered Nurse; I graduated in 2011.

My College life was the most fun part of my life so far. I just had a blast with all of my classmates, but in my 3rd year I realised that I might not be made to be a nurse. Sure, I am the most caring person I know, but being a Nurse meant you have to be responsible for the life of another. I just felt that that’s too great a burden to bear for someone like me. I had a rough childhood, my parents are separated, I experienced bullying in High School and I just felt like I deserve a happy and simple life. So when I graduated I felt like I was at a dead end. I felt like my life stopped. I did not know what to do.

When I discovered the BPO industry, I saw a glimmer of hope. I felt like there is a room for me in the world. I decided I can make a career out of it. So that is when all of the magic happened. I envisioned that it is such a wide field and that I can do whatever I want and still make a decent living out of it.

This has always been my dream: “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”. I always say to people: Do what you love, follow your bliss, listen to your heart and intuition, and know that by doing so, success will have no choice but to follow.

I have always chased challenges and I always thrive in areas where there is a considerable amount of challenge. I like the satisfaction I get when I gain the Client’s trust or when the client is impressed by me. I always aim for more because I know I can offer more. I always push myself to be my best. I do not compete with anyone, I compete with myself. I think that this world is big enough and that there is room for everybody. We do not have to hurt one another in the process of trying to move up the ladder.

At this point in my life, I am proud of myself – that I remained a happy and positive person despite all the drawbacks and obstacles in my life. Drawbacks and obstacles are inevitable, but we can control what we are within. 🙂
