Of course if you go by her surname, the connection won’t be instant. But Danielle Camcam is the younger sister of Reina Hispanoamericana Filipinas 2021 Emmanuelle Vera (screen name of Emmanuelle Camcam).
I will give the space to Dani with an intro about herself:
“I graduated from De LaSalle University with a degree in Psychology, and was a consistent deans lister. After graduating I dabbled in Marketing for a real estate company for 1 year and had two people working under me; but my big dream was always farming. I quit my job in 2021 and decided to start traveling around the Philippines and parts of the US.
One thing i found consistent wherever i went was the importance of agriculture; especially during the pandemic, i saw how food supply had become something everyone was worried about. We saw food shortages in groceries, and the scarcity of crops. This 2022, I put my leisure travels on pause and went back to my roots: Amulung, Cagayan. I had bought land and began my farming journey.
It is farmers who are the backbone of our society. It is farmers who are the very core of our economy. It is farmers who give us life.
With 42% of Philippine land being agricultural land; why is it that we are not giving more importance to the people who actually know how to cultivate it and better our nation?
Today i stand before you, representing the underserved, the neglected, the reason why we have life: I represent our farmers… The people who truly have the power to shake the universe.
