The happiest pinoy carries a happy heart and exudes it for everyone. Richardson Navor would like to share his 1M grand prize giving more wheelchairs for the deprived PWD when he was awarded 2015 Happiest Pinoy by Cebuana Lhuillier at Solaire Grand Ballroom last night. I've witnessed how he exuded true joy in his heart when interviewed as Cebuana Lhuillier's 2015 Happiest Pinoy.
Among the ten finalists from more than 280,000 nominations on Cebuana Lhuillier's 3rd year search of the Happiest Pinoy, Richardson emerged as the true happiest pinoy. Present during the awards night were the Lhuiller clan headed by Ambassador of the Philippines in Portugal John Philippe Lhullier, John Henry Lhuillier and John Andre Lhullier with Mr. Batangan from the executives of the company.
Awarded also were the Happiest Student 2015 Cyprian Jade Basa, a student from Roxas City and 2015 Happiest OFW Arnel Genzola, a professor based in China. The judges for this year's search were advertising guru Emily Abrera, motivational speaker Francis Kong, Supreme Court Legal Consultant, Atty. Ann Corominas, 2009 Hero of the Year Efren Penaflorida, Camarines Sur representative Hon.Leni Robredo, TV News Personality Luchi Cruz-Valdes, Cebuana Lhuiller Insurance Solutions General Manager Jonathan Batangan and the search's past two winners Winston Maxino and Rommel Arellano.
Richardson Navor of Caloocan was hailed 2015 Happiest Pinoy from the top ten finalists; Johnny Medrano, watch and cellphone technician from Batangas; Rustie Quintana, artist frim Cagayan De Oro; Rodolfo Mendoza, a PWD advocate from Nueva Ecija; Randy Halasan, a teacher from Davao City; Eduardo Hernal Jr., a retired military officer turned pastor from Taguig City; Julia Marquez, a retired teacher from Batangas; Don De Vera, an architect from Las Pinas City; Cyprian Jade Basa, a student from Roxas City and Naprey Almario, a non-government organization founder and businessman from Davao City.
Last night I was reminded of more efforts from fellow PWD to help. I've learned that happiness despite challenges should always be the choice. It is that real joy in every endeavor when the majority choose to complain. Thank you Cebuana Lhuiller for inspiring the nation to foster optimism than despair, resilience and hope than enmity. I am one happy Pinoy and happiest each day for the gift of life.
