I am hoping to return back to the Philippines as soon as possible. I would like to get my US passport so that I can travel there.

I've been here since 1989. I moved around the country; I've lived in L.A., Texas, Miami, Minnesota, and Sacramento. After that, I went back to the Philippines for a while. I came back to San Francisco in 2015, where I was staying in various homeless shelters until my case manager helped me find housing at a hotel in the city. I've done odd jobs, by the day and by the week, like mail sorting. I also briefly taught Elementary School in Phoenix.
I put in a teaching application at San Francisco Unified School District. I would like to teach Elementary School again, so now I am waiting to hear back from them.
I am happiest when little plans work out. My proudest moment is when I arrived in the United States and got naturalized, and now I'm able to stay in San Francisco. In my free time, I like to go to the library and work on computers, listen to music, watch videos, and read the news. I like to move around the city.
I'm raising money for basic needs.
Be the first to donate to Benetta this month!
I'm raising money for a Vehicle so I can get around better because I have bone on bone Arthritis**.
I'm raising money for back rent so I can hold onto my rent-controlled housing**.
