Yesterday, August 31st of 2013 I was finally registered with the Philippine consulate to secure my rightful place as being a citizen of the Philippines. I am so proud to have 2 places to call home, dual citizenship. Proud to be an American, a citizen of the United States of America as well as Proud to be a Filipino, a citizen of the Philippines. This will carry on to be something I can share with my friends through my lifetime. I am so thankful of my Mommy and Daddy and proud of their heritages. I am also so very proud they have given me and my brother the opportunity to make our own decisions when we are older to where we would like to live. Though I can only reside one place at a time, my pride for both countries are of equal dimension.
Just something I wanted to share that happened in my young life that is very special to me. This is something I will hold of great value throughout my life, something that not everybody is afforded.
