Name: Nilda Mae Factor
Member Since: September 2014
What Nilda Mae has done as a GABRIELA member:
- performed with Pinay Choir =)
- attended climate change event
- helped raise funds for 30 day community ask
Things she’s good at: being a student, being a social worker, being a good friend, making personal connections, and being dedicated.
Reason for Joining: I joined Gabriela because I believe it is my duty to be involved in the issues that are affecting my community not only here in Seattle, but across the country and the Philippines. I have always had the desire to learn more about where I come from and what I can do to uplift my people. However, I did not know how to properly go about achieving this goal of joining an organization that specifically addressed the issues and problems that plague Filipinos in the States as well as the Philippines.
Why this work is meaningful to Nilda Mae: Since joining Gabriela, I have been inspired not only to do more but also educate myself in our history and the impact it has had on Filipinos across the globe. I take pride in who I am and where I come from and I would like to pass down our culture and customs to future generations.
When she’s not working for the movement, where can we find Nilda Mae / what can we find Nilda Mae doing? You can find me in the Bay Area with friends and family. =)
