TEN YEARS ago, my niece Pia Marie Ancheta Andrade sat on an easy chair, observing things around her as a one-year-old child. Today, she sits on a writer's chair, discussing things around her as a junior columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer!
Pia has been chosen amongst many candidates after a rigorous wave of interviews and examinations. As a writer for Junior Inquirer, she is expected to attend events organized by the Inquirer, as well as share her thoughts on issues that may interest the tween and teen segment of Inquirer’s readership. Her first article was published today—and it’s on the cover page of the Junior Inquirer!
Congratulations once again, Pia! You make your parents, siblings, and the rest of us very proud.
