Zerothreetwo Conversations: Interviews with the Creative Class

Feb 25, 2019

In the big scheme of things, we're all trying to make a difference. Most of us are trying to do so by making a difference in our lives, but as you get older, you quickly realize that the true path to purpose is finding it in the service of others. Many don't know where to start and what to expect.


I ran into Lianne Sala in a kiddie party a few months ago. I knew she had an NGO called Sistemang Pilipino (SP), but I confess, I didn't know much about it. So we chatted and I realized that she would be a great guest for the podcast. Fortunately, Lianne said yes and that she would bring along her partner in SP, Aurelio Maria R. Rodriguez, to help in the interview.


The both of them opened my eyes as to what it takes to not only start an NGO, but to keep it running. There's so much that goes on behind the scenes, so much struggle, but at the same time, so much reward. Of course they talked about what they are going through, but my favorite moments are when they talked about the people they helped through music.
