Career woman! Joy Belmonte buckles to work despite jet lag
Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte dove straight to work at an international conference even though she just arrived in London after a 14-hour flight.
Belmonte shared on Facebook photos of her with mayors of other countries at a meeting of the Global Commission on Drug Policy Monday.
“Got to my hotel at nearly midnight last night after a 14-hour flight to London. Pero sabak na sa trabaho at 830 am despite killer jetlag,” she said.
Belmonte expressed elation at being the only Asian mayor invited to speak on drug policy reform at a high level session.
She said the meeting gave her the opportunity to meet “interesting friends” like the Mayor of Athens, Greece and the Mayor of Lisbon, Portugal.
Catch some sleep when you can, mayor!
