HoRP#16: Alexa

(c) John Mervin Borja

A little girl begging her lola to open a pack of candy caught our attention while we were on our way to the Lapu-Lapu monument. The child’s name is Alexa Angela Gregorio, a four-year-old nursery student who skipped school that day to visit Manila Ocean Park with her family.


Alexa’s grandmother told us that herapo can already identify living and non-living things. When we asked Alexa about what she wants to be when she grows us, she said:

“Gusto kong maging teacher. Tuturuan ko sila ng a, e, i, o, u. Vowels.”

Her lola also told us that Alexa is a friendly child who loves to play with her classmates.

“Best friend ko si Sophia. Naglalaro kami. Umaakyat kami sa stage kapag pinapasayaw kami.”
