In telling the story of the 75years of National Book Store, we couldn't separate it from our own stories because the truth is, every single Filipino has a #NationalBookStory.
My personal National Book Story starts out with begging my dad to buy me Merit notebooks that had super nice white paper in 4th Grade to buying my own Pilot V7 pen stash with matching refills as my favorite tool in writing some of the best tv shows in the country to buying all the Kiyosaki books as I endeavored into business and ultimately culminating in this experience of helping create a stellar showcase befitting 75 years of a National Institution.
We have this lovely, brilliant, gracious, down to earth, humble, funny and entrepreneurial 95yo lady to thank - the incomparable Nanay Coring and her Ramos family as they have created a Filipino brand that is truly at par with the world's best ❤️ Thank you for the honor to work with such an amazing team for the event led by dear friend @xandraramos and Thank you for the inspiration that will stay with me for a long time ❤️ NANAY CORING on how @nbsalert has stayed successful for 75years: "Sipag at Tiyaga. Yan ang kailangan para magtagumpay... Inabot na kami ng gera, lindol, nasunugan, binagyo at bumangon ulit. Never give up. Lahat ng yan ay nasa sa iyo." 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #inspiring #wisewords #nbsat75 #nationalbookstory #nanaycoring
