“I’m gonna pursue my dream and I’m gonna get it step by step. Maybe little by little but atleast I know where I am going. This is the path that I chose and I know it is not too late. I’m gonna get over this quarterlife crisis really soon”
Who would’ve have thought at an early age, this young beautiful woman has already experienced a lot in life? Fell in love twice, got hurt, stumbled, got wounded, broke her heart three times, cried many times, became a failure once and so. But what made her really strong was when she stood up and told herself that she can make it!
This is Pauline. Peers call her Pau. She is from the Philippines. Grew up in a wealthy, loving family, Pau, as the eldest, never felt the pressure from her very supportive parents. She grew up enjoying the adventures of life.
Having her own car, traveling abroad, learning the art of baking, joined and won in a pageant, gave a shot at a dancing club representing her country all over the world and alike.
Everyone thinks she is living the life of a perfect daughter. But she is just a human. She gets hurt, she tumbles down and she cries at every single moment of heartaches. She was once a failure herself. Got hurt by several men who were so stupid for not seeing the best in her. Until one day, she woke up, opened her eyes slowly, looked at the ceiling and whispered… “I can do this!”
She got up, picked her broken self together and showed people that she can be better than what she was yesterday.
And now, she is the manager of the family business located in Pagsanjan Laguna, Calle Arco.
Which is the most visited restaurant of celebrities in the Philippines and foreign countries.
Bakes sweets and pastries, learning the art of everyday life and has already found the love of her life, who happened to be a chef as well.
You see, when you commit mistakes, you get hurt, you see yourself down and in trouble, you don’t end everything there. You must get up, and accept that life doesn’t stop there. Nobody is perfect and we don’t just learn everything by reading, we also learn things by experience.
Acceptance, Learning, and Execution are some of the things that we should consider in life to get us going.
This is Pauline Cabrega, a beauty queen, a chef, a baker, a manager, a dancer and a wonderful person in and out.
