I am Dana Marie Perez. A probinsyana from Hilongos, Leyte. I am currently based in Cebu City, Cebu. A Software Engineer in the morning and filling up pages of stories or reading a book or a blog at night. I love to travel. I’m an ENTJ. A soccer player. A Music lover. A bookworm. A frustrated fictional stories writer, poet and song writer. I can’t cook though. Half introvert and half extrovert. I dream of learning Kung Fu in China someday. (Haha) I believe that we can all excel in as many fields as we choose. We all have the capacity to be polymaths. We just need to work hard. 🙂
I was an active public servant and a student leader during my college years. Currently, I am an active youth volunteer for several local, national, and international organizations that focuses on the UN’s Millennium Development Goals.
Enough about me. Now, let me share to you why I started and continued this effort of creating Labelled with DMP.
As stated at my dedications, there are three (3) main purposes for this site:
- Become the world’s portal to Hilongos, Leyte
Hilongos is a little municipality in the province of Leyte. I believe with all my heart that this little town has more to offer than what is usually seen by the Hilongosnons. I am hoping that through this site, the world will be able to see the beauty of Hilongos.
- Introduce the Perezes of Hilongos, Leyte
This part is quite personal and more of a family-ish agenda. 🙂 This site also aims to help the Perezes in Hilongos to know the whole family clan. Family ties and origin are one of the most important parts of our lives. With this site, I am hoping to not just keep these ties to myself but also to share it to my family.
- Lastly, share experiences that will hopefully help and inspire people
I am hoping that through my experiences, my thoughts, and my campaigns, I will be able to help people learn more about life and the society that we are in.
I am sharing this to you to also inspire you to create your own. I also strongly encourage you to also share your stories. Each of our stories are inspiring and helpful in our own little ways. 🙂
It has been a very old dream of mine to have a venue wherein I can directly share my thoughts, adventures, campaigns, and everything that would interest me. Having Labeled with DMP is a dream come true. I hope this petite little site was helpful or will be helpful to all those who read or will be reading it.
