Nenette Suriaga on her travels: ‘I allow the world to shape me’

SHE never dreamed of travelling the world but her destiny gave it to her with her determination and faith in God.

Nenette Suriaga, a native of La Carlota City was given the privilege to travel the world with her family - Anthony Lee, her husband and only son Jefu.

To name a few of the many countries that they travelled together as a family were the countries in Finland, Paris, Monaco, Rome, Germany, Los Angeles, United States of America, Argentina, Switzerland and many others.

They are currently based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. They have their own businesses.

Nenette is a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Riverside College of Nursing. She completed her elementary and high school education at La Carlota North Elementary School and at Dona Hortencia Salas Benedicto National High School.

It was never easy for her to reach her current status in life but with her determination, perseverance, faith in God, she was able to enjoy the blessings that she longed for in her life such as the gift of family, friends, businesses and the opportunity to live and succeed in a foreign land.

“For me, travel is freedom to explore and to live fully. I have allowed the world to shape me knowing various cultures, people and even the fashion in the world. It’s destiny that I have enjoyed these fruits of life. But I am always grateful to God for overflowing me with these blessings,” she said.

Nenette has also her penchant for style like dressing with the current fashion in the world.

“But this is how I should dress up because this is how the people in other countries are dressing up. It’s simply a matter of dressing well and appropriately because I meet people everyday. I dine with well-off families and friends. But I always stay humble and simple in my heart and with the way I treat my fellows,” she said.

She added that she loves to travel the world. But her home in the Philippines where her Mother and siblings live still has its meaning to her.

With the internet connection, she always calls her Mother and other siblings to stay updated with each other.

She also helps those who are in need.

She is so grateful that the Lord has blessed her and her family so much and she will continue to live with God’s grace and blessings.
