DUBAI: Camilla Iman have had her share of the homesickness that most Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) like her go through.

“It was due to some circumstances that were really hard to handle,” Iman, community advocate, life coach and a charity/outreach mission organizer, told The Filipino Times.

What made her bounce back was a flash in her mind telling her that she was brought to this world not to be a loser. “Sabi ko, hindi ako susuko. Sa dami na ng pinagdaanan ko, ngayon pa ako susuko?

“Yun ang naging turning point ko; nun ko nakita kung bakit ako dumaan sa ganuong stage: Kasi mai-encounter ko pala ang mga taong ganun ang problema,” Iman said.

Henceforth, Iman saw herself organizing support activities at the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), giving meals provided by sponsors like West Zone Supermarkets, Chowking, Union Cooperative, Chicking and some other Filipino food chains.

“In addition to providing meals and toiletries, me and my team also provide free counseling and personality development trainings for our fellow OFWs suffering from depression and anxiety,” Iman said.

“I’m doing this program because I want to influence every individual to move on with a strong will and a positive outlook that no matter how dark the tunnel as it goes, there is always a light at the end of it. I want to share the positive energy I have,” she said.
