First Lines Contest 2019: OFW Struggles Hopes and Dreams

Fernando Ceballos Lachica Updated May 12, 2019

It all started because of Marc.
Marc is Marco Fernando; twenty-two years old, Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), married and a dreamer.
The story of the dreamer began in the thirtieth day of December 1985, Monday, Manila International Airport, Departure Lounge, Philippines: “Calling all passengers bound to Dubai, you have twenty minutes left to board the plane, Thank you!” The announcement nailed in my ears with excitement, hope, and fear.
