It was not easy working for and with Sen. Loren Legarda, public servant par excellence, but I am fortunate that I did. To some, she was like Meryl Streep in the movie, The Devil Wears Prada, and yes, there are similarities, but she has a heart of gold. She is not just a woman of substance, but works with purpose, too. Her love of country, dedication to public service, and fidelity to family are the things that will always bind us until the end.
Despite the sleepless nights spent working under her office, I look back on those days with great satisfaction and fulfillment. I’m thankful for the opportunity of working for and with her, and grateful for the privilege of learning directly from her.
