People’s Choice Awardee Maruxa Pita

For People Asia’s “People Of The Year” issue, I was very lucky and privileged to meet and photograph the People’s Choice awardee Maruxa Pita. We photographed her at the school that she runs in Pasig. It was a sight to see her in her environment and in what she’s passionate about. So inspiring. Makes you think about what we can do for our own country.

And a snapshot I took of the daily meals Maruxa prepares for the students. Also notice the sign near the ceiling? It says, “Water Level, Sept 26, 2009 ‘Typhoon Ondoy'”
