13 Reasons Why Filipina Ship Capt. Che Javellana is ‘Beauty and the Best’

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Master Mariner Ma. Kristina ‘Che’ Javellana, our Sailing Republic’s newly crowned ‘Beauty and the Best’ queen.

Her majesty joins the rank of female sea rulers Capt. Jasmin Labarda and Chief Engineer Nina da Silva. In fact, they all graduated from the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP).

The truth is, the dear captain has got not merely my attention. After some research and online interview, (just a little change; small, to say the least) her peerless personality captured my keen interest and respect.

Like Belle of the hit movie Beauty and the Beast, Che is a beautiful person you would like to hang-out with. She is strong, confident and bright. Capt. Che doesn’t need a beast though, to unleash her best. She have had courageously traverse the oceans and sailed continents from coasts to coasts. She spent most of her time at sea, away from her beloved family, friends and even without prince charming. As a seafarer myself, I must say her highness’ journey was never been a fairy tale.

Perhaps, you’re aware that to toil at sea is not easy (a tale as old as time, true as it can be) but through the years, Capt. Che built herself a prominent queen. She certainly (certain as the sun, rising in the east) composed herself well to reign on time.

She had been on the battlefield for years. With iron boots on, she fought the hardest to help serve the global economic boom. Amidst stormy seas, she sagaciously led her men to execute their mission. Filipino migrant workers like her are indeed prolific and world class (a tale as old as time, a song as old as rhyme).

As a seafarer advocate, I was able to meet a handful of women sailors but candid Capt. Che is exceptional among others. In our fun chikahan, we can learn these 13 valuable life skills from her:

1.BE WHO YOU ARE
