Joy Belmonte had to skip a women’s forum. Here’s why
She was all prepared to deliver her speech, but this got in the way.
Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte was excited to speak during the ASEAN Regional Summit for Women, but suddenly had to pass as she suddenly felt unwell that morning.
The politiko stayed up all night to prepare her speech, which discusses the issue of women and illegal drugs.
Thankfully, she was able to send a representative from the city’s Women’s Affairs Unit to read the speech on her behalf.
Better luck next time!
