Vigan City Councilor Janina Medina-Fariñas is grateful for her three children, since being their mother has “greatly improved” her goals and passion in life.
This was among the politiko’s musings for Women’s Month in an Instagram post on Tuesday, March 2.
Fariñas said that her mother had raised her to be a strong independent woman. So growing up, she thought she already knew everything.
Then she became a mother.
“Everything changed when I had these three kids. My perspective and goals changed to include the world through their eyes, gaining new kinds of strengths and finding new fears I was willing to overcome because of them,” Fariñas said.
“I can confidently say that the goals and passion have not wavered but have greatly improved because of my experience being a mother to them. I remain steadfast and strong because I want to raise strong independent children too, the same way my mother did with me and my siblings,” she added.
