I Had Lunch with a Senator Today, and It`s Life-Changing


© Couline Gloria
Never in my life that I imagined I would have lunch with a senator. It all started on Ask.fm where the bot asked me which political figure I`d want to have lunch with. Senator Nancy Binay was the first one I thought of. Welp, it`s just a question, and it`s just an answer. Who would`ve thought the same senator would see it on Twitter and actually reply to me? To be honest, I was reluctant at first because who am I to be contacted by an influential personality? But one tweet lead to a Direct Message then lead to a text and a call from her staff and then there I was, sitting down on a table with my friend — who also has an advocacy for the youth, and a Senator of The Philippines. Hey, not just any senator, but the Nancy Binay. 

I have no idea what to tell you guys as I am still starstruck from this afternoon`s affair. Our conversations with her were so casual, so calm, so chill. She was so friendly, simple and very much humble despite of her status and answered our every question with delight. I must admit that I wasn`t exactly a huge fan before, but after my encounter with her, everything changed. And in the youth`s saying these days: so much respect.

To Senator Nancy Binay, if you`re reading this, thank you so so soooo much for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It is an honor. I would never forget this day and I`m sure this would be a good conversation starter among me and my friends, HAHA! Thank you for calling us your "new friends" too, I am still overwhelmed. I can`t wait for the next meeting with you! ☺

  2. Nice tactic posting this on Reddit to get hits. Maybe you can put something worth reading into your blog next time and you won't have to resort to posting tabloid titles on Reddit.

  9. This is amazing! Can't believe she granted your wish just by seeing it on Ask. She is really a people person and totally doesn't deserve the banter she gets. You're quite lucky! Loving your new layout too. I've been stalking your blog (oops) and you have so many fresh and creative ideas! An unconventional blogger like you deserves this much at six months' time. xx
