Having experienced a sometimes tough upbringing back in her home country of the Philippines, we chat with Zen who tells us a bit about her journey from her childhood until now as she enriches the lives of children across the country through her vision of 'Seed', and also enriches the lives of those who are struggling over in the Middle East.
A simple memory of a kind-hearted person offering the young Zen a bowl of porridge while playing in the street has manifested a strong drive to want to give back to the community. Something small like this really triggered a chain reaction of goodness that Zen has acted upon through her faith in God.
Zen, who lives in Dubai, utilises her networks from her employment as airline crew, from church communities, and through an amazing band of volunteers to make the lives of many who are either suffering from poverty that much better.
Whether they be families who have lost income from Covid, or individuals who have had a tough time getting through life in general, or the children of the Philippines who need that extra help so they can get an education, and have that seed sewn into their lives so they can look forward to a beautiful life.
Join us for a chat full of humility and grace, and a heartfelt thankfulness for the life Zen has been able to lead.
