I am continuously praying for my country and for our next President. The 2016 elections is the first time that I fervently prayed for a presidentiable.

Flying back to Manila after going to Iloilo to vote. It's so nice to see that so much people my age are exercising their right to suffrage. The youth is definitely a part of the change. #Halalan2016 #Iloilo A photo posted by Myrtle Sarrosa (@myrtlegail) on May 9, 2016 at 4:54am PDT
