Seven women on what it’s like living on their own
Four years ago, I came to Manila to attend university.
I grew up in a province far up north with my Papa’s family but since I would stay with Manila-based relatives for my summer vacation, it wasn’t that difficult for me to adjust to living in a new environment.
I’m lucky to be staying with relatives but I still miss my family more often than I should. That’s why I admire women who are completely independent, and either live completely on their own or with roommates!
We talked to seven women about what the experience is like and if their hard-earned independence is worth it.
