Socially Yours

Spearheaded by yours truly, the ‘seaambassadors’ have been actively advocating positive change that benefits both local and global Filipino communities.

I am humbled to enumerate a dozen of accomplishment:

1. THE SEAAMBASSADORS’ REPUBLIC BLOG
Recipient of OBRA’s Outstanding OFW Blog Award in 2014, The Seaambassadors’ Republic (ex EXPAT-ON-THE-SPOT) Blog promotes the welfare of Filipino people.

On how this blog aims to be a significant catalyst for positive change, read this post.
On what compelled me to start blogging, here are few lines from my acceptance speech during the OBRA’s awarding ceremony held in Manila.

“I started writing a blog not just for fun but primarily for the purpose of becoming a Pinoy sea ambassador. Marami po kasi sa atin ang hindi alam kung what it’s really like to be a seafarer or kahit pa ang mga kasamahan natin sa industriya, kulang ang kaalaman with regards to the things which make us proud to be seafarers… Read more

2.) APOY AWARD
APOY Award is a special recognition personally crafted by yours truly to recognize humans’ souls on fire. Every year, a high school student is given the distinction. Read more

3.) SHE’S FAIRER AS A SEAFARER (#SFAS)
SFAS is an original concept and my personal initiative to pay tribute to our Filipina seafarers. They are arguably significant for a more diverse and dynamic maritime industry. Hence, I conduct personal interview, thorough research, write blogs and proudly speak about their well-being in public. I truly look forward to write an inspirational book about their feat soon.

4.) REMEMBER A SEAFARER TODAY (#RASToday)
Dubbed as the digital ‘cure’ for boredom and isolation at sea, I conceptualized the RASToday project to foster stronger family relationships. Read more

5.) HEALTH & NUTRITION ART ACTIVITY
A creative health & nutrition awareness activity, children enjoyed this event. See the photos here.

6.) HIV/AIDS AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
Seafarers are the group of Overseas Filipino Workers heavily affected by HIV/AIDS. Here’s how we spread awareness online to ease the devastating effects of the deadly disease.

7.) BLUE HEARTS CAMPAIGN
To fight human trafficking earnestly I joined, and encourage others to be part of UNDRCC’s Blue Hearts Campaign. Read more

8.) PROMOTION OF SOFT SKILLS AT SEA
Managing human resource efficiently is necessary. The people are the organisation’s main engine. To set a benchmark, we conducted a study about one ideal Filipino Captain and his effective leadership style. Read more

9.) PROMOTION OF PHILIPPINE TOURISM
The Philippine’s is a beautiful country. I write blogs, engage in forums and speak in public of its stunning tourist spots and cool people. Read more

10.) #JUANVOICE
JuanVoice works like a safety net of migrant workers climbing the gangway of success. A digital accident/incident/non-conformity and positive comments reporting system, JuanVoice had been effective to share lesson-learning experiences and advisories to many Filipinos. Read more

11.) ONLINE STUDY
I set-up a webinar in my blog. The ‘Safety At Sea: A webinar for rookies’ contains safety related topics which are helpful for seafarers or seafarer aspirants. They can easily view, read and/or download my lecture materials posted online.

12.) SUPPORT FOR CRUISE WORKERS COMMUNITY
The country’s cruise ships workers community deserves help and support. While I had worked on cargo ships since I started sailing, I extend my expertise to help cruise ship workers and cruise ship job applicants.

Through writing blogs, conduct of interviews, research and training development, I am positive that these cool people are not being ignored. Here’s a blog section dedicated to advance their interest.

Thanks to all benevolent people who helped us fulfil our positive roles.

It’s always our pleasure to lead and serve the community!
