Within the PR and event circles in the emirates, she has earned a place of respect and continues to motivate Filipinos in the community to excel in their own field of expertise.
She shares, “Throughout my career, I have been standing up for my beliefs – I have encouraged other Filipinos around me to be a fighter, especially when others try to bring us down.” she says. “Never falter when you know you are right. It is a matter of believing in yourself and choosing to stand up for what you think is right.” Cleo seeks to inspire young and ambitious Filipinos back home, urging them that they can do whatever they put their minds to as long as they have the heart and dedication for it.
