An Intimate Conversation with Julie of Davao City by PinayWise

PinayWise (PW): Good day, Julie! Thank you for sharing some of your time with us today. Let’s start with something light. How does a day in your life in Davao City look like?

Julie (J): Hi PinayWise! Thanks for having me. Well, mornings start early for me. My one-year-old tends to be my alarm clock. We enjoy the sunrise and breakfast together. Then, I prepare for my university classes while my neighbor helps watch my baby. Davao is bustling, but the community spirit is heartwarming.

PW: Juggling motherhood and university must be challenging. What keeps you motivated?

J: My daughter, of course. Every time I look at her, I’m reminded of why I’m pushing through. I want to give her a better future, and education is a key to that.

PW: Beautifully said. Speaking of Davao, how does living in such a vibrant city influence your perspective on life?

J: Living in Davao has given me a blend of cultures and experiences. We have the city’s modernity and the province’s charm. It’s a reminder that life can be both fast-paced and laid-back. But, honestly, it’s also taught me resilience. The city has its challenges, and every day is a lesson in patience and perseverance.

PW: I can imagine. How does the city’s dynamics affect your dating life, especially being a young mother?

J: Dating is… complicated. Many are still traditional in their views here. Being a young mother isn’t always seen positively, but I’ve learned to find strength in myself and not seek validation from others. I believe there’s someone out there who’ll accept and love me and my daughter wholly. Until then, she’s my main focus.

PW: Your maturity shines through. Let’s talk dreams. What’s your vision for your future career?

J: I’m studying to become a pediatrician. I’ve seen how vital early health intervention is, especially in urban areas like Davao. Children are the future, and I want to play a part in ensuring they have a healthy start.

PW: Your journey and dreams are truly inspiring, Julie. Lastly, if you could share a message to young girls facing difficulties in life, what would it be?

J: Never let circumstances define you. You are so much stronger than the challenges thrown your way. Seek support, believe in yourself, and always remember: storms don’t last forever.

PW: Thank you for sharing your heart with us today, Julie. It’s been an honor.

J: The pleasure’s been mine. Thank you for giving me a voice.
