Naning never slept on a real bed, never had a real roof above her head. She never had four sturdy walls to protect her from heat and cold, and wind and rain. She never had an address.

Naning is one of those people who knew nothing but to live life in vulnerability and uncertainty. Every day, Naning and her family had no choice but to conquer all the adversities the streets throw their way. These every day triumphs and display of resilience become so commonplace, so ordinary, that we who walk past them grow blind to the immensity of their daily struggles. Until soon, we grow blind to their very presence.

But just a few months ago, Naning, who lived her entire life in the streets of Quiapo, walked on a public stage to claim her college diploma.

Open your eyes and see the world around you. Open your eyes, and see invisible Naning… her world, her dreams, her triumph.
