“Being Your First Lady Has Been the Greatest Honor of My Life, and I Hope I Made You Proud.”

You’ll be missed, madam. It is by your example that I finally had the inspiration to plan my book robin project. I’ll call it “Hiram”, the Filipino word for “Borrow”. I’m launching it with a friend this March! It’s a simple public library that we’ll travel around with. We’ll read to kids, lend books to the young people (and old ones, if they wish) all to encourage empowerment through education. I was moved by the Better Make Room program, and this is my way of paying it forward.
