The month of February is the month of love and though we automatically relate it to the concept of romantic love, it is important to know that there are other kinds of love as well. In this issue, Yes Philippines News Magazine brings to you the brand of love that is uniquely and quintessentially Filipino.
For our cover story, we feature Clarissa Mae Ragrag, a young London artist who is consumed by the love of her craft that she has made it an integral part of her identity and her life. She won the prestigious Mayor of London Gigs busking competition in 2016 which opened her opportunities in the world of music.
Also in our other pages are stories of the selflessness, dedication and compassion of some admirable women who go the extra mile to show love not only to the people they work for and work with but also for those who they had left at home. We feature, Chit Afuang, one of the primary movers in the Filipino community in the United Kingdom and our fondest memory of her―as she left us to be with our Creator.
Truly, there are so many facets of love that we can experience and explore. Let us not limit our understanding of what love is. Read on and be inspired to love better and harder the way we really should so as to make our world a kinder place for all!
