By Joemarie “Joeray” Llanera

Whenever I have the privilege to have a conversation with this vibrant woman, she never fails to amaze me of her wisdom on countless goodness of the human heart. She even said that all we need to be good and kind is the chance to show the beautiful side of us even in not so appealing situations. Annabelle Mosser is truly a woman of substance. She already reached the highest peak of her career as a businesswoman, wife, mother and yes, a wonderful and almost perfect daughter to her still able 91-year old biological mother. When I asked her what else she wanted to do after putting up classrooms and filling them with high-tech computers; what more does she wants to do after giving ordinary people extraordinary jobs that change their lives for the better, she simply smiled and said, “I want to do more for the human kind. I want to give more of me. My love and passion in helping others never ceases even when I am far away from the Philippines.
