TO bring happiness to one’s life is indeed fulfilling on both parties — to the one who received, and especially to the one who gave such.
On October 1, “Project Imis” was launched by 2nd District Rep. Jumel Espino on his Facebook account. Imis is Pangasinan word for “smile”.
The project seeks to inspire Pangasinenses to keep going and smiling despite difficulties featured as life-stories in his official Facebook page.
His first 1st featured story was a documentary on the life of Arturo Aquino, Jr., a disabled resident of Sitio Camaing, Barangay Salomague, in Bugallon and an active student leader in their school.
Espino said Arturo’s life is a proof that disabilities won’t make someone disabled at all.
He encouraged all his kabaleyans to help him discover stories worth sharing to the world.
In less than 24 hours, the post gained hundreds of engagements and positive feedback from the netizens.
Ely Abenoja Llaguna commented, “Congrats Jumel! Keep up the good work.. You’re heaven sent to your constituents.”
To netizen Brenda De Vera, his project represents who he really is. “Bringing hope and smile to your constituents ..we are proud of you, CONG. JUMEL..” (Melody Valenton)
